Modern Piping, Inc. and Modern Sheet Metal, Inc. commit to perfecting fabrication on every project. Our state-of-the-art fabrication facility in Cedar Rapids, IA is the largest and best equipped in the region. Our customers benefit from fabrication in many ways, including: 


  • Increased productivity over field fabrication 

  • Reduced safety hazards (less work performed on-site) 

  • Reduced material waste 

  • Common assemblies yield reduced design time 

  • Accelerated construction schedule 

  • Reduced costs 

  • Reduced job site congestion 

  • Reduced disruption of customer’s operations 


Our 90,000 sq./ft. corporate headquarters houses a 69,000 sq./ft. plumbing, piping and sheet metal fabrication area that contains: 

(12)    Large Fabrication Bays 
  (1)    Large Designated “Clean Room” Fabrication Area 
  (8)    Shipping & amp; Receiving Drive-Through Doors 
  (1)    Overhead Crane Spanning 9,200 sq./ft. loading area. 
  (2)    Jib Cranes 

 (What is “&amp” tho) 


Fabricating piping and HVAC ducting systems in a climate-controlled fabrication facility demonstrates proven benefits. Contractors who fabricate solely at job sites are unable to provide the necessary quality control measures, accurate cost estimating, and scheduling controls that are required in today’s fast-paced construction industry. We advocate for the maximum use of fabrication and have pioneered the development of new processes and technologies to lead the way.
