Modular Building Design
Gross Size of Project:
- Architectural Excellence
The convenience store follows the Suncor brand image with features and finishes. The exterior is a combination of aluminum architectural panels and stone, most of which was preinstalled at the plant. Large front windows in the design maximize viewing in and out of the store along with capturing natural lighting. A large cooler was installed for the new wine and beer offering available at this location. Millwork, ceiling accents and MDF build-outs all add to the aesthetics of the store.
- Technical Innovation & Sustainability
The building is constructed of steel post and beam construction with 3” concrete floor topping and is set at grade on pier foundations. Sidewalks surround the building to provide a seamless transition into the building and to accommodate all handicap accessibility requirements. At the plant, all finishes are preinstalled up to the mate-lines of the building modules, and completed quickly at the site.
- Cost Effectiveness
High building insulation values and energy efficient lighting and systems help keep energy costs down. Accelerated scheduling means the store is open and doing business much sooner than with a conventional build. The amount of project management and on-site supervision for the owner is minimized, allowing them to deploy their own resources more effectively. Modular construction also provides a level of cost certainty for the owner as all the design requirements are captured early in the process, eliminating costly change orders that can occur with conventional builds.
