Volumetric Building Companies (VBC), a modular construction firm based in Philadelphia, recently acquired a manufacturing facility in Berwick, PA. This plan will help VBC expand its operations in the northeast US. Recently, VBC worked with GBCA member Clemens Construction Company on the LVL North project at Broad and Spring Garden Streets.
From Construction Dive:
The facility, which was previously used by another modular builder but closed since 2017, features over 356,000 square feet of space and is expected to generate over 200 new jobs, according to the release.
VBC CEO Vaughan Buckley said the facility’s production will focus on manufacturing multifamily housing units of both steel and wood for use in buildings with three to 20 stories.
