The East Baltimore Community School was much more than a collection of modules that comprised a 27,382 square foot building, it was the foundation of hope for an entire section of Baltimore City. It served as swing space for classes to begin while the permanent facility was being constructed.
USMGE delivered several modular buildings to the site and connected them to form the nucleus of the school. The modular swing space solution consisted of 3 Phases; the first was completed in in less than 120 days and consisted of 19,240 square feet of temporary space.
Phase II added another 2,958 square feet. Phase III had another 5,184 square feet added, for a total of 27,382 square feet.
As the actual building is being constructed, students can attend classes in a safe, comfortable temporary building and get the head start they need.
USMGE provided full turnkey and design-build services for the EBCS project and was selected through a rigorous interview process.
“On behalf of everyone at East Baltimore Community School, we would like to commend your firm for the recent completion of our school project. You did and extraordinary job of meeting our schedule even though we had to keep extending the decision-maiking deadline. The first three weeks of the modular installation included steady torrential downpours and you didn't let that stop you from keeping the schedule. You worked with us as we made design changes and helped us meet our budget objectives by assisting with value engineering. Your sub-contractors were uniformly courteous and helpful, particularly during the punch list process. But the most important accomplishment of all was the deliver of a building that provides a safe attractive environment for learning for the students at the School. In early conversations with children about what they liked most about their new school, they said that "the building is new, and it was made just for us." We are sure that you could tell from the students who spoke at the appreciation event, that they are grateful for what they have received and have received it with joy. Everyone who tours the school is amazed at how nice it is and how substantial it feels. People who were skeptical about modular units have become converts.
We look forward to three more expansion phases with you.”
