Case Study

Gilman School

In 2006, the prestigious Gilman School needed temporary space during renovation of its main building without sacrificing quality, increasing costs, or detract from the award winning architecture of their 68 acre Baltimore, Maryland campus.

The project needed to accommodate 385 students and support staff. The modular solution consisted of 35,000 square feet of temporary space for use as:

  • 24 Classrooms
  • 1 Library
  • 4 Conference rooms
  • Administrative offices
  • Food services facilities
  • Health station
  • Locker spaces

In order to complete the project, 48 air-conditioned modules previously utilized by the U.S. Naval Academy in nearby Annapolis, Maryland were brought to Gilman's campus. USMGE™ facilitated the reuse of these existing buildings minimized costs, reduced timelines, and decreased environmental impact. Additional benefits to Gilman School were achieved by USMGE™'s detailed and meticulous permit work with Baltimore City government officials.


"Thank you for working with Gilman School on this complicated project!

During the permit process with Baltimore City, USMGE™ was successful, often on short notice, to help Gilman resolve the issues with the City government. We were very pleased with the amount of time it took to have the buildings renovated and installed, on time and on budget.

Overall we have found our relationship with USMGE™ be a rewarding and satisfactory experience. We would be pleased to recommend USMGE™ [to any potential customer]."
