Ed Tornberg has a passion for modular buildings in western states. Why modular? For certain projects, it just makes sense. But it takes good construction documents to get it done right.
Time, location, or other considerations make modular an attractive choice. The idea has to get from concept to construction, and choosing a structural engineer experienced with modular buildings will give you the peace of mind to stay focused on the big picture.
The difference is in the drawings…
Traditional structural drawings sometimes leave things unsaid – critical dimensions, connection details, etc. But in the world of modular construction, everything must fit together and be clarified before construction starts. Ed first of all ensures that his drawings meet modular requirements, and works with each client to minimize uncertainties. Secondly during construction you can expect timely follow-through when minor questions arise.
One of the key advantages of modular buildings is portability. Often a structure is used at one location for a short time period – measured in months instead of years. In this situation Tornberg Consulting has experience and expertise to provide foundation engineering that is cost-effective and minimizes site impact.
