Sierra Star Townhomes Case Study

Multi-Family Project Built Using  Off-Site Modular Construction

Project Name: Sierra Star Townhomes
Date of Commencement: October 2006
Date of Completion: June 2007
Location: Mammoth Lakes, CA
Approximate Project Value: $6,000,000
Building Types: Multi-Family Townhomes
Number of Units: 40 Living Units

The Challenge

 

These townhome buildings needed to be completely constructed, set, and ready for entry before the hotel could be opened.

 

Extreme snow loads of 235 lb/sf at the high elevation required special framing and structural connection details.

 

Large and complex building roof systems needed to be constructed. Winter weather and strong storms made traditional construction impossible.

The Solution

 

The project was built, shipped, and installed by November 2007 in this mountain community of Mammoth Lakes, California.

 

To avoid the pending winter storms, the buildings were delivered, set, and installed in a matter of days. The buildings were ready for sale by March 1.

 

Speed was a critical factor in the modular home project, and modular construction saved a remarkable amount of time and money!

Efficiency, Quality, Speed

 

To avoid the pending winter storms, the buildings were delivered, set, and installed in a matter of days.

 

With Modular Building

 

Extreme snow loads of 235 lb/sf at the high elevation required special framing and structural connection details.

Large and complex building roof systems were built as modules and crane was set into place as part of the installation process.
