What Modular Classroom Design Should you choose?

If a school or church is going to rent or buy a modular classroom the facility managers, administrators and teachers all should play a role in the floor plan design and specification selection. Regardless of the size and configuration several design features need to be considered by anyone involved in operating or maintaining the space - particularly if the modular will be used for an extended period of time.

Here are a few helpful things to consider before you start your search for a modular classroom provider:

1. How much space is needed? Consider the age of students, if there will be a teacher and an aid and what type of furnishings will need to fit in the space.

2. Will bathrooms be needed? If so, how many for each gender and what special needs will need to be accommodated?

3. Climate control. Will the modular classroom need special heating and air conditioning for your climate zone?

4. Floor, wall and ceiling finishes. Will carpet or tile flooring be better? Will art work, dry erase and chalk boards and other teaching aids be fastened to the walls? Are acoustics important?

5. Window and door locations. Where should the entrance and exit doors be located and how will the exterior steps and handicap ramp be positioned?

6. Where is the ideal location to place the modular on your property? Consider parking, pedestrian access, utility locations and security.

Now that you are prepared to ask the right questions and request the ideal modular classroom try using this tool to search for a modular classroom supplier in your area.

Video - How Permanent Modular Buildings are Installed

Ever wondered how Permanent Modular Buildings are installed? 

Here is a quick look at how a modular building is installed on a permanent foundation using a crane and installation crew. This type of installation is very common whenever a multi-sectional modular structure is needed long term.

Each section of the modular is positioned into place according to the floor plan of the building or school. Once in place the entire structure is connected together and to the foundation - according to very specific set of plans that have been prepared by a team of structural, mechanical and civil engineers. Once the installation is complete the interior and exterior finishes are put in place, utilities are connected, access ramps and steps are installed and the structure is ready for occupancy.

“We’ve used modular buildings and mobile office trailers for years whenever we needed extra office space or instead of building a traditional building. In fact several Parks and Recreation operations around the U.S. have used modular trailers for office space, visitor centers, guard houses and what not.” R.C. Shaffer, Procurement Manager

Some of the most popular uses of modular buildings by government run parks are:

Guard and Guest Welcome Centers

The most popular sizes of mobile office trailers and modular buildings are:
