Deluxe Makes Short Work of a Huge Project


Deluxe Building Systems, located in Berwick, PA produced the modular units that have become Conklin Hall, a huge dormitory for the students at Duchess Community College in NY.


The 136,000 sq ft building contains 465 beds in a suite style setting with 4 or 6 beds per suite, each with a kitchenette, 2 baths and common living area. The project included 240 modules. The entire project only took a year, cutting the time of a site built dormitory in about half.

The entire dorm was completed in July in plenty of time for students moving in for fall term. For additional information about this project or one of your own, contact John Erb at Deluxe.

Congrats to Deluxe for this nice project done using light gauge steel framing via the modular discipline. In my opinion light gauge steel is the future for modular construction - especially with the new concentration on multi-familt, light commercial, work camps, etc. Thanks to Deluxe who over the years has paved the way.
