EVENT HOST

Skender Modular Factory

Events Raw Space

Skender is revolutionizing how the industry builds with a radically advanced, seamless approach to modular building. Fully run by the skilled craftsmanship of union labor, Skender’s soon-to-launch modular factory produces steel, multi-story, urban buildings for multifamily, hospitality and healthcare projects. Entirely new building possibilities are about to take shape in Skender’s 105,000-SF Chicago factory on the southwest side, right off of I-55.

Everything you thought you knew about modular is going to change. Faster, greener, safer, stronger, more cost effective, and unmatched in quality, Skender reinvents modular construction as only it can. A groundbreaking application of an integrated design, manufacturing and construction model, the Skender modular process combines the most cutting-edge manufacturing practices with data-driven technology, proprietary processes and unbound creative vision. It completely customizes the building experience, giving clients the choice of conventional on-site work, a fully executed off-site modular build, or any level of hybrid combination.

This is the future of the craft, miles away from how it’s always been done. Skender is the first fully integrated modular solution in the Midwest. Come see why Skender was just named one of the “world’s most innovative companies” by Fast Company.

Why This Matters

With companies like McDonald’s and Google opening offices in Chicago there is no shortage of new construction and development.  But, while it may not be as flashy as new Class-A office space, Chicago’s industrial sector is currently booming with 18.9M SQ in the pipeline. 

 

As Chicago continues to grow, they face the same challenges as the rest of the country: labor and material costs continuing to skyrocket.  But, new technologies could be the solution to help lower costs and speed up construction time.
