McCarthy Construction and Mortenson Construction are collaborating on a joint venture to build the new National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility on the Kansas State University campus in Manhattan, Kansas. This is a massive Department of Homeland Security project slated for completion in 2022-2023. McCarthy Mortenson needed office swing space to work out of for the duration of the project. Palomar Modular Buildings was contracted to supply 3 modular buildings totaling 14,624 square feet for the construction companies to conduct their operations. A departure from many of our customer’s needs, speed of building deployment was not a critical factor to this project; instead the customer required highly optimized, value-engineered buildings to provide durable shelter that can withstand prolonged exposure to the harsh construction environment that the buildings will reside in for the next six to seven years.
