SCIF

In United States security and intelligence parlance, a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF; pronounced “skiff”) is an enclosed area within a building that is used to process Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) level classified information. SCI is classified information concerning or derived from intelligence sources, methods, or analytical processes, which is required to be handled within formal access control systems established by the Director of Central Intelligence (DCI). Some entire buildings are SCIFs where all but the front foyer is secure. Access to SCIFs is limited, and all of the activity and conversation inside is presumed restricted from public disclosure. A SCIF can also be located in a mobile configuration and can be deployed using air, ground or maritime resources.

Diffrent Types of Exteriors

Did you know that you have a choice when it comes to the type of exterior for your modular building.  Many may be under the impression that there is only one type of exterior, which is the standard L panel.  Well, that could not be further from the truth.  Icon has completed many projects in which the customer has requested brick, stucco, L panel, or even a combination of more than one. 

Modular buildings do not have to look like a standard trailer.  They can look like a commercial construction building for a fraction of the cost.  Icon has turned out many gorgeous buildings over they years and can do the same for you.  With our outstanding staff and team we can build to your specifications in a compressed time frame.

Options

Modular buildings are mainstays in industry. They are used for a wide range of applications, all of which include the creation of space for specific purposes. Modular buildings can be built to produce space for security guard posts, bus stop shelters, offices within factories and warehouses, meeting and planning spaces at construction sites and a large variety of other applications. In addition to these normal-seeming applications, modular buildings are employed for some unusual applications, the likes of which may surprise even companies that are involved in the construction or sale of modular buildings.

Of course, more traditional modular building materials remain much more popular and prominent than unusual examples like shipping containers. Their advantage and appeal continues to be their qualities of functionality and economy. They can be constructed at low costs compared to permanent construction, and the waiting time between order and fulfillment is much shorter compared to permanent construction. Modular buildings will likely always make an important contribution to space management needs in all kinds of contexts.

Modular Technology in the News

Modular technologies have been featuring more and more prominently in various tech and construction news outlets around the world. It seems that not only in the construction industry, but across many industries, modular design has been gaining more and more favor as an alternate construction and manufacturing methodology.

Across many of these industries, modular design has become more prominent for common reasons: for system flexibility and lower construction/implementation times in an increasingly fast-paced economic world, and for cost effectiveness in a painfully protracted recessionary economy.

What we are seeing is a broad paradigm shift in not only construction technology, but other manufacturing and data technologies as well. We are seeing an entire shift in thought towards a new, flexible, efficient mode of production. It is all very fascinating, and we will all benefit from it!

CAD

A CAD system is a combination of hardware and software that enables engineers and architects to design everything from furniture to modular buildings.  In addition to the software, CAD systems require a high-quality graphics monitor, a mouse, light pen, or digitizing tablet for drawing; and a special printer or plotter for printing design specifications. 

CAD systems allow an engineer to view a design from any angle with the push of a button and to zoom in or out for close-ups and long-distance views.  In addition, the computer keeps track of design dependencies so that when the engineer changes one value, all other values that depend on it are automatically changed accordingly. 

Icon Construction is staffed with experienced draftsman, architects, and project managers.  This enables us to provide a complete turn-key construction.  We are able to meet your needs whether you need a modular office space, barracks, classroom, healthcare facility or any other temporary or permanent space.
