As the construction industry continues trending toward technological advances, more and more contractors are turning to modular construction as a way to speed up the process and make it more convenient. However, some of the most interesting developments in the modular construction realm are portable classrooms. In a survey, the overwhelming reason to use portable classrooms was speed of delivery (35%) followed by shifting enrollments (26%) and the relatively inexpensive nature of the classrooms (25%), but there are plenty of other benefits of modular and portable classrooms as well. Here are some of the benefits of modular-constructed classrooms.
There’s no dispute about the fact that modular classrooms can be adaptable to nearly any budget. In fact, the initial cost of a portable classroom was found to be between 36% and 77% of the cost of a site-built classroom addition. You’ll also have the ability to choose between new, used, temporary, and permanent structures. Portable classrooms are constructed to be able to endure the wear and tear associated with their transportation requirements, and overall, they can be a budget-friendly way to prioritize education without having to sacrifice the quality of construction.
Many people are quick to assume that there are a very limited number of layout options for portable classrooms, and sometimes even modular buildings as a whole. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. 360mobileoffice says, “Whether you are looking to lease or purchase a modular classroom, keep in mind that the building can be designed to fit the needs of your school. Many suppliers offer turn-key classrooms, which means they will build, deliver, and furnish it to meet the needs of the school. Mods can be designed to provide sufficient space for a school whose student body is rapidly expanding. If the building is going to be permanent, the exterior can be outfitted with various features, such as brick and mortar, to match the current structure of the school.”
Ultimately, these are just a few of the biggest benefits of school portables. For more information about all that modular construction has to offer, contact ABS.
