Choosing a Site for Your Modular Classroom

How to decide on the spot for your Modular Classroom?



"We have a number of options for placing a portable classroom on our Church property and would like your ideas so that we choose the best location?"

Choosing the right location to install a portable modular classroom should be one of the top items on your To Do list before you spend any money. Here are a few things to consider:

1. What size is the modular structure? For example it could be 60' long by 24' wide. We call these the exterior dimensions. Know your building "footprint" first. This will help with site selection and during initial discussions with suppliers. (if you want to reach suppliers use this online contact form)

2. Consider occupants. Choose a location that works best for the students, teachers and visitors. Consider things such as proximity to other facilities, parking, student drop off, door locations and how a handicap access ramp will be positioned.

3. Consider costs for installation.  A level site site that is easily accessible by trucks and work crews is ideal. Modular suppliers can work with any type of site even if a crane is required but "easy" always saves money and time. Also consider where the existing utilities are located - close is always less expensive.

Hope this helps but if it didn't do the job feel free to give me a call for nationwide help - Matt Banes, (714) 442-2757 extension 502.
