Skender Named U.S. ‘Modular Builder of the Year’ by Construction Dive
Skender, a vertically integrated design, construction and manufacturing firm, has been named America’s “Modular Builder of the Year” by Construction Dive, a leading industry news publisher.
Skender’s pioneering turnkey, steel modular solutions allow it to deliver high-quality, scalable building projects in multifamily, hospitality and healthcare. Leveraging industry-leading Lean expertise, Skender opened its 105,000-square-foot advanced manufacturing facility in Chicago in May 2019 with a commitment to delivering world-class modular projects that achieve tangible schedule, quality, environmental, safety, social and cost benefits.
“Modular’s exemplaries such as Skender, a 64-year-old conventional builder at its core, are looking at the method of assembling 90%-complete buildings offsite as a way to solve fundamental societal challenges one module at a time,” Construction Dive Editor Joe Beeton recently wrote. “From Construction Dive’s point of view, Skender offers the most promising model, heritage and leadership for modular’s next big step, and has gone out on a limb to recognize the firm’s potential,” Beeton added in his award announcement.
“We are truly honored to be selected by Construction Dive as Modular Builder of the Year,” said Mark Skender, CEO, Skender. “We believe modular building is an important construction delivery method of the future that will revolutionize the way the building industry and developers bring new buildings of all kinds to American communities.”
