ATCO Structures & Logistics Introduces Line of Permanent Modular BuildingsBuildings will save time and money November 16, 2009 CALGARY, Alberta – ATCO Structures & Logistics (ASL) today introduced to the Canadian market a new line of permanent modular buildings called, ATCO Urban Space. These energy efficient, high quality buildings are designed to save time and money. "The introduction of the ATCO Urban Space brand represents ASL’s commitment to playing a larger role in the construction of permanent modular buildings first pioneered by ATCO in 1947," said Harry Wilmot, President, ATCO Structures & Logistics. "ATCO Urban Space offers a high-quality, attractive and economical building solution that will appeal to commercial, residential and institutional clients." ATCO Urban Space is suited for a wide range of uses; from schools and medical clinics to condominiums and community centres. Unlike traditional construction, these modular buildings are manufactured in a plant, minimizing delays or loss of materials due to weather so customers can begin using the buildings sooner. "The quicker that customers can begin using their buildings, the sooner they can earn revenue while minimizing the construction schedule and financing costs," said Wilmot. The ASL team can also engineer green buildings that maximize energy efficiencies through structural insulated panel (SIP) technology, solar lighting, responsible power, water usage and more.
