Portable Classrooms Are A Great Space Solution
Some Tips On Ordering Your New Portable Classroom Buildings
Portable classrooms are a great solution for temporary classrooms and district growth. There are several reasons for a portable classroom building to be utilized. Some schools have grown too fast to keep up with a short term population burst, or some schools have made it through a tragic storm or natural disaster, while others just need a short term fix during a remodel or renovation phase at the school.
Tips on ordering portable classroom buildings:
- As a board or community acknowledge how long the need will be. If it will take longer than two years to catch up with your space goals it may be better to consider a permanent modular solution and still get your buildings quickly.
- Define how large you want your classroom size to be. Portable classrooms can be as small as 500 Sq. Ft, or As Large as 1,000 Sq. Ft. - depending on the local modular companies inventory. At Modular Solutions, Ltd our portable classroom buildings typically range between 700-900 Sq.Ft. so you can accommodate 20 - 30 children.
- Think about access to restrooms. Do you want a portable classroom building with restrooms or without. At Modular Solutions, Ltd we make both types.
- Look at utility locations. Some sites may be convenient, but may be too far away from all of the utility connections to make a portable building a value option. Our representatives will always offer a free site consultation to help you evaluate the best location for your portable classroom buildings.
- Ensure ADA egress is correct. If you keep your portable classroom above the ground you will be 30" to 36" above the existing grade, this will require a ramp. You can also excavate out the grade and backfill, however in many jurisdictions this requires special permits and approvals.
- If you are a school district, you can save time and money by purchasing through our local purchasing cooperative. Modular Solutions, Ltd is a procurement partner with cooperative purchasing agencies across the USA.
