Fun Modular Projects 5

Today is the last installment on fun modular projects. We have been in business since 1996, so this series of articles could run for the rest of the year and not run out of great subject material.
For this last project I thought it would be fun to show the versatility of a modular building. We constructed a modular building for a school district in Arizona that was using the modular building for vocational education. The challenge was to incorporate all these various training resources into a single building.
Areas Required:
1. Cullinary Arts (complete commercial kitchen and food service)
2. Early Childhood Education(daycare center)
3. Automotive (vehicle maintenance & repair)
4. General Education Degree (GED program)
5. Computer Training (Computer lab & training)
6. STEM (general scientific studies)

Such a diverse use of training rooms required classrooms for each area as well as hands on learning lab and application.

Challenges:
The project had to be installed over the winter break, which meant snow and bad weather. Because everything was prefabricated & the building came out 95% complete the weather did not impact the total project schedule or budget.

Challenges:
Getting all the diverse uses into one facility. We designed fire walls, noise walls, service roll up doors, and other items to ensure a cohesive learning environment throughout.

Fun design elements:
There were existing structures with steel roofs, our design team matched the design and built in porches and offset design so the building was more inviting. The culinary arts kitchen was great to design as this was one of the first vocational type facilities in the state.
