Modular Construction in Education: Portable Classrooms and Permanent Buildings

The success of a school primarily depends on few critical factors like the skills of the teachers, the friendly nature of the staff, and the implementation of modern educational techniques. One of the most overlooked factors among schools in creating a safe and pleasant learning environment for the students is the school infrastructure itself.

 

Research has proved that a well-designed school building that offers a conducive environment results in a high attendance rate, increased focus, and self-esteem, all of which are critical for students’ performance. It is because of this reason that many educational institutions worldwide are investing in modular construction to build their infrastructure. .

 

What are modular schools?

 

A modular school or modular classroom building typically consists of different modules constructed at an off-site location in a climate-controlled factory. Consequently, it reduces the time, money and efforts spent on materials, heavy machinery, workforce and building equipment.

 

Once the modules are constructed, they are shipped to the desired location and assembled to form a complete and cohesive building unit. This unique construction technique has many benefits over the traditional building methods and it allows you to build portable and permanent classrooms.

 

Portable classroom/school

 

Portable classrooms serve a critical purpose in the education sector. If the school is facing irregular enrollments or if the school authority does not have the required space to expand the school building to accommodate new students, the management can choose to invest in portable classrooms.

 

Even if the permanent school building is under construction or renovation, a temporary modular classroom can serve the students’ purpose and allow them to continue their academic activities without a gap. Portable units can have many applications, including classrooms, staff rooms, science labs, dorms, administrative offices, health centres, and more. A modular classroom is hence the most flexible way to plan your school.

 

Permanent classroom/school

 

Modular construction not only means building a portable classroom but also a permanent structure using prefabricated construction technology. It is an excellent alternative to traditional buildings. Opting for a modular building is time-efficient and is of the highest quality. Besides, the modular structures are fully customisable, which means you can custom-create every aspect of your school building.

 

You can build larger classrooms with column-free space for the students to move around freely. You can also create a smaller yet highly functional administrative office as well. The options are limitless. All you need is planning, which lets you precisely get what you want.
