Art’s Way Scientific wins Modular Honor

May 19th, 2015

Art's Way ScientificHaving last reported on Art’s Way Scientific May 1, 2012 when it was providing 24 modular buildings for scientific animal research, MHProNews has learned Art’s Way has been awarded a 2015 Award of Distinction by the Modular Building Institute (MBI) for its modular transgenic swine facility. Built for Iowa State University’s Zumwalt Station Farm in Ames, IA., transgenic refers to engineered organisms scientists produce by transferring genes between species.

The two 16′ 6” X 88′ modules include 2,178 square feet of animal housing space to protect a closed herd of special swine used in research. The buildings also include changing room and shower facilities for personnel involved in the research.

Using modular methods, the client realized a 50 percent time savings over traditional construction. In addition, according to marketwatch, foundation and infrastructure costs were 60-70 percent less than that of a site-built structure.

Dan Palmer, president of Arts Way Scientific says, “This project combines the features of our laboratory animal research experience and our longstanding history of agricultural swine production buildings into a complex for transgenic animals. This building is one of a kind. We are pleased that it has been chosen for this prestigious award.

Art’s Way Scientific provides modular buildings for scientific research as well as for calf care and all stages of hog production. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Art’s Way Manufacturing Co., Inc., a manufacturer and marketer of specialized agricultural equipment located in Armstrong, Iowa. ##
