CCO Brian Ellis is at the helm of his 175 ton all-terrain crane on a Wednesday in Orlando. He and Oiler Danny Arnold are on their first job for the day. They’re tasked with lifting and placing portable modular classrooms into place at Moss Park Elementary School on North Shore Golf Course Boulevard. Modular Building Systems International (MBSI) is a Winter Garden based company that produces prefabricated buildings. Today, MBSI hired Sims Crane to do the heavy lifting.
The neighborhood where Moss Park Elementary School is located is experiencing a population explosion. According to a report commissioned by the East Orlando Chamber of Commerce, the more than 164,000 East Orlando residents live in one of the country’s fastest-growing suburban areas. It is home to a steady supply of quality housing. The community has blossomed into a desirable location for residential and commercial growth thanks to the education and technology industries.
