Clayton Homes Builds Gold LEEDS Dormitory

Mountaineer Hall, Appalachian State University's modular constructed residence hall on Poplar Grove Road in Boone, NC that opened in fall 2011, has received LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) gold certification based on energy-saving criteria established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI).

Mountaineer Hall was certified under GBCI requirements for homes because the 234-unit complex is less than four stories tall.  The room modules were built by Clayton Homes

John S. Clark Construction Company was in charge of on-site installation and construction of the residence facility.

The 460 bed modular student housing facility totals 118,434 SF that consists of a three-story "F" shaped building. It is the largest residence hall on the ASU campus. Each student has a private bath and each room has its own heating and cooling unit. This project was completed via the design-build delivery method. The design/build team hired Clayton Building Solutions to provide modular units that were assembled before arriving onsite.

The commercial side of modular construction is rolling right along with projects including motels, banks, multifamily housing, dormitories, townhouses and military housing.
