Admares, a real estate developer using marine, offshore, land and modular construction techniques, has partnered with Porsche Consulting for the construction of a new commercial property in Brooklyn, New York City.

Admares said that it will use its new modular construction technology to build Building 4.0, the 10,000ft² commercial property, the first North American development to use such techniques.

The project will be located at 58 Grattan Street, at Bohemian Bushwick neighbourhood of Brooklyn.

With over 10,000ft² of elevator serviced space, the development will include retail space on the ground floor, with double-height ceilings, a terrace and three floors of up to five commercial loft/studios, which will be perfect for artists, producers, start-ups or established small or medium-sized firms.

The project was designed by, a Brooklyn-based architecture studio. Ground-breaking of the project is expected to take place in March 2020.

Admares said that Building 4.0 will allow for 95% of the construction to take place in a US-based factory and only 5% of the above-grade building will be completed onsite.

The same technology is now the basis for the company’s new modular assembly factory which was designed in cooperation with Porsche Consulting. The new smart factory is expected to be built this year and could be completed two years later.

Admares CEO Mikael Hedberg said: “This is an exciting and significant moment in history as we bring the modular construction of the future to New York City with our industry innovators, Porsche Consulting.

“Building 4.0 technology allows us to complete 100% modules in the assembly factory. The completed modules can then be installed quickly over two days, causing minimum disturbance to the surrounding neighbourhood.”

Admares’ Building 4.0 is being spearheaded by developers from The Skylight Development Group and Easy Street Properties.

The developers were previously involved in several New York City-based projects, including the Elsewhere Music Venue located at 599 Johnson Avenue and one of Brooklyn’s most unique residences – The Townhomes of Marlborough Road at 56 Marlborough Road.
