Falcon Structures Earns First Place Permanent Construction Retail Award From MBI
Austin TX, May 19, 2022 – Falcon Structures, a shipping container modification manufacturer, earned the first-place award for the Permanent Construction Retail category at the World of Modular conference, hosted by the Modular Building Institute (MBI) at the end of April.
The MBI honored Falcon for their project The Pitch, a container-based food and beverage venue in Austin, Texas. The Pitch earned attention due to its innovative design utilizing twenty-three modified 40-foot shipping containers combined into several two-story structures. The units house concessions and community spaces that overlook the well-landscaped courtyard and the nearby pond through the wall-sized windows or open-air enclosures.
The MBI also awarded Falcon with an honorable mention award in the Permanent Modular Dormitory Over 10,000 square feet category. In affiliation with UrbanBloc, Falcon worked on the LifeMoves Mountain View interim housing community in Los Angeles, California. This community provides shelter to fourteen families and eighty-eight single residents.
