Modular Building Recertification, In Arizona

Modular Building Recertification, In Arizona

State of Arizona mandates all prefabricated buildings have state seals

In Arizona any prefabricated buildings that are for commercial or public use are required to have state seals on the building.  Sometimes a client will purchase a used building from the internet or even get a building donated.   In such cases a great deal is not always a great deal. 

When a building comes into Arizona from another state and it has not been approved by the department of building and life safety, you will have to get the building recertified.   The only way to get a recertification completed is to hire a company such as Modular Solutions that provides new construction as a factory and that will also verify your building is viable for use meeting Arizona codes and construction methods.

Sometimes a building was on a federal site with no approvals, and unfortunately the cost to retrofit the building to current code can be extremely expensive.  The best option is if you are considering taking a building for free or purchasing a building from out of state, to contact our Architectural (AE) department and let us offer you advise.

The process is pretty straight forward for recertification, but can be cost prohibitive if you end up with a building that was used on a federal site and furnished by the "low-bid" and does need any standards for code compliance or construction standards.

For more information on recertification contact our team:

Build A Learning Environment, Not A Portable Classroom

STEM Learning Environment

Just a thought to get everyone having a conversation about what is a learning environment.  As I thought about it more there are some comparisons that come to mind that are similar to the human body.   A human body does not function with bones alone, it needs muscles, and joints, and tendons, and skin to be flexible and grow.  Yet we expect our learning environments to thrive with just a basic box (a skeleton of bones if you will), and think this will function effectively.

Modular Solutions, Ltd has developed a classroom learning environment for the STEM or STEAM learning culture that will grow and move and has flexible systems to choose from.

What makes a classroom environment successful?

Energy Efficiency: So that schools have the funds to operate, and can show future generations that there is "a better way to build"

Natural lighting: To encourage creativity and good health

Open flexible Space:  Students can work in small groups, alone, in large classroom settings.  Having flexible space options make a huge difference in how a teacher can reach all the senses of a student as they educate

New generation ceiling tiles that block sound travel and absorb sound, such as the new panels manufactured by Armstrong Ceiling Systems 

Carpet squares like those designed by Desso, a Tarkett company that are environmentally friendly, that can be take up or removed as space changes are required.

Cloud based learning wall, such as  provided by Nureva, Inc  that students can all participate in the collaborative learning approach

Decorative and inviting exterior finishes.  Gone are the days when a modular classroom had to be a wood sided box, with a pitched roof and shingles.  If the modular classroom exterior is fun and inviting the children will be excited about coming to school each day
