Giusti, who graduated from USF in 2008, realized the need for architectural design and fabrication when he was working for an architecture firm in Tampa. He started small by making components on his own on the weekend.
Now, the enterprise is Giusti’s main focus. Modulo recently acquired an entire warehouse in Tampa with enough space to accommodate their busy schedule. At one point in October of 2018, the firm found itself with 25 active projects.
So far, the success of Modulo has happened organically without the need to advertise or spend energy promoting themselves. Clients seek out the small firm because of the quality work they do.
“We have the sign for the building, but it’s hiding in the attic. We never installed it; we never had the time,” said Giusti. “People know where to find us. We’re living the dream of the 1950s, where you go to the carpenter because they are so good, and you keep going back, and you tell your neighbor, ‘you should use these people.’”
