This modular retail store was 90% completed prior to leaving the NRB facility so on site time and activity was minimized. Time to market is key motivator to choosing to build off site in the retail environment, and NRB cut the construction time down significantly so the owner was open and earning revenue sooner.
This store was designed as a pilot project, with plans to roll out to multiple locations within the next few years. A practical layout was incorporated into the design that would suit the various sites as the program rolled out.
The steel and concrete single-story structure features recycled steel framing and gas fired roof top units with economizers, along with water saving toilets and faucets with sensors for resource conservation.
