Jackson | Main is one of the most prolific modular designers in the Northwest.
Modular building in urban environments requires an experienced team. As modular pioneers, JMA has helped local jurisdictions refine their modular permitting, design coordination, and construction and inspection processes. We have longstanding relationships with several modular manufacturers, and collaborate to offer refined designs for the factory-built environment, and serve as leaders during installation.
Cubix North Park
Cubix North Park is a high-density, transit-oriented modular design project. This four story building includes a basement and a ground floor that were site built, and three upper floors that utilized modular production. The project contains 108 units with 93 Small Efficiency Dwelling Units (SEDUs). The modular floors (36 boxes) were assembled on site in eight days.
Cubix Othello is the next step in modular affordable urban design. Located at the Othello light rail station, the project is a progressive six-story modular structure with 85 studio, 1-, and 2- bedroom units. The project is breaking ground in Sept 2018 with an expected construction timeline of under 12 months. Cubix Othello is the first project to utilize JMA's reconfigurable kit of parts, allowing for rapid iteration and development of future sites.
US Prefab, a modular project developer approached Jackson Main Architecture to develop a modular solution for senior living leveraging the economies of scale inherent in prefabrication to deliver a project type accessible as lower-income senior housing. This construction model allows the developer to make full use of and benefit from the economies of working with local subcontractors.
The versatile module design allows a great range of program flexibility including single- and multiple-story buildings, small independent living units or large congregate living facilities.
Thomas Jefferson Apartments
US Prefab, a modular project developer approached Jackson Main Architecture to develop a modular solution for senior living leveraging the economies of scale inherent in prefabrication to deliver a project type accessible as lower-income senior housing. The project program utilized prefabricated wall panels assembled in a factory and transported to satellite construction yards near individual development locations. In these open yards, the modules are assembled from the wall panels, and transported to the final site for setting.
The Willows Pond retirement community is a senior housing facility containing a mix of independent and assisted living units. JMA completed the fully modular schematic design for this project. The design met LEED Gold standards.
