When Tulsa Centerless Bar Processing first contacted us, they were in search for a unique experience to provide their employees that work in the factory. They have a traditional break room in the factory but found that most of the guys in the shop chose not to use it because it was so close to their work and didn’t really feel like a break. So instead, they chose to go with something unique that the guys would be excited for and that’s when they had the great idea of using shipping containers. (more…)
Ladies and gentlemen, we are proud to announce our expansion into Tulsa, Oklahoma. We have partnered with Hemphill LLC to provide 200,000 square foot of manufacturing space and over 100 years of combined construction experience to the table. 2017 is already lining up with projects and we are ready to help Tulsa grow into a manufacturing hub again!
We are now located at 1305 N Louisville Ave, Tulsa, OK 74115.
Here’s a little view of the ModernBlox factory.
Another thing that’s new with us is our logo.
That’s not the only thing that’s new for us this 2017! New projects are also pouring in this year starting with the #CenterlessBlox, our first commercial project for the year. Tulsa Centerless Bar Processing is the client for this project. This will be the break room for their East facility.
Our team is pumped to have these containers in for our next commercial project.
It has been a month since the completion of the DemoBlox. Our new project is an outdoor bar for the entertainment space at The Inner Circle Vodka Bar in downtown Tulsa. We are working with architects from W-Design in Tulsa for the blueprints and with our client, Inner Circle, to come up with the materials.
The #DemoBlox is moving! As you all know, we created the #DemoBlox in 106 E Eskridge Ave poured in a lot of hours in this beautiful container home that we have been able to build. This #DemoBlox has been our child which we are seeing grow at a very rapid rate. So far its been a great experience. After making a deal with the Meridian Technology Center, we were able to zero in on a place where Modernblox will be stationed as our office in Stilwater, Oklahoma. We are soon starting to give tours to everyone registering with us. Just like everyone we feel nothing different but it is indeed really hard to say goodbye to the place we spent so much time pouring out our passion in building something that we’ve always dreamt of. But “With every ending comes a new beginning” as they say, and we will be starting our journey here at the Meridian Technology Center located at 1312 S Sangre Rd still in Stillwater. (more…)

During the month of September we worked on the windows for our ModernBlox prototype, the DemoBlox. We are still working on Phase 2 but making steady progress towards the unit’s completion. Windows are very important in any home, whether it is made of containers or not. Windows enable enough sunlight to enter the interior space and provides proper ventilation for residents, guests, and pets. So, this month, we dedicated our time working on windows. Yay!
