Go Green

Sustainable Construction

At Meehleis Modular we believe in promoting green practices and implementing them into our structures and daily manufacturing processes.  Since 2010 we have been a grid neutral company, installing a 191 kilowatt solar farm atop our manufacturing facility, enabling us to build nearly year round with energy from the sun. Additionally, we monitor in-plant construction wastes and have achieved a minimum of 90% diversion rate on materials destined for landfills.

Meehleis Modular Buildings has been a CHPS high performance school member and United States Green Building Council (USGBC) member for over 10 years and is dedicated to designing and building structures that exceed energy conservation requirements. Our structures often surpass California Title 24 energy requirements, cutting energy cost on average 10-30%.
