479 Front Street Hempstead, NY
The project is a 4-story, 29-unit building located in Nassau County, Long Island and was constructed with stacked modular units installed over a concrete and steel foundation. The individual modular units connected to provide the apartment dwelling units and came to site fully furnished. The cellar and common areas were fabricated on site.
The exterior of the building is clad in Nichiha fiber-cement panels installed as a rain screen system, which provides a cohesive look to the entire structure.
When built, it was the first 4-story modular home in Nassau County. The modular construction allowed for an efficient construction schedule and limited interruptions for the winter months.
