In a world where sustainability is gaining momentum, at McDonald Modular Solutions we do not view Green building as a trend, it is our legacy. We've been designing and building eco-friendly for years. It makes perfect sense that we would be leaders in the green initiative.
McDonald Modular Solutions is unique as we are the first company in the industry headed by a LEED Accredited Professional. Modular building components and finished modular building units can be a part of any LEED design and construction effort.

These new buildings will be at least 75% more efficient than current industry standards, and will use sustainable elements throughout the design that comply with LEED certification standards.
RENOVATION.McDonald Modular Solutions is committed to renovating our existing fleet of buildings to meet the new Green standards. We hope to make all our buildings operate more efficiently. What's good for the environment is good for business.
BENEFITS OF GREEN BUILDING
- Reduced Operating costs
- Enhanced marketability
- Increased worker productivity
- Reduced potential liability from Air Quality issues
- Reduce negative environmental impacts
Green modular building provides cleaner air, more daylight and increased productivity. Utility bills are lower, and less energy is consumed. Water use is also minimized. It is a goal of green building to reduce impact on the environment so water efficient devices are used and in some cases water is reused.
During the construction of your modular building, less building materials are wasted. There is far less construction site disturbance, and the environmental damage is minimized. Going green is the future of our business, and the future of our world. At McDonald Modular Solutions, we are proud to be on the cutting edge of this new movement.
