About Mobile Classrooms

Mobile or relocatable modular classrooms are not typically affixed to real estate. This makes them portable and reusable. They can be easily disassembled to refurbish older modules or moved to a completely different location and repurposed.

Today’s modular buildings are extremely flexible and hard to distinguish from their stick-built counterparts. Single and multi-story structures can be designed for nearly any conceivable purpose, with a myriad of interior and exterior finishes and architectural features.

Benefits of Modular Construction

Cost/Time Savings – The modular building process reduces design and construction costs by 20% to 40% and cuts the construction timeline in half. Building “modules” are manufactured off-site in a factory, transported by truck to the construction site, and dropped into place by crane, shaving months off of the entire process.

Quality Control – The modular construction process is precise, using accurate measurements to minimize waste and regular quality inspections throughout. Materials are carefully monitored and safely and securely stored, something that’s not easy to do on an exposed jobsite.

Innovative Design Capability – Built of steel, concrete and wood like conventional buildings, modular buildings can be designed to blend in aesthetically with existing structures. State-of-the-art 3-D and 4-D design capabilities make them suitable for a wide range of uses, both temporary and permanent.

Sustainable – Portable classrooms can be enhanced with eco-friendly insulation, energy-efficient utilities and low-VOC or no-VOC floor and wall treatments to reduce the building’s environmental impact. High-performance products, such as dual pane windows, acrylic skylights, motion-controlled light fixtures, sealed lightweight concrete floors, and sprayed polyurethane roofs can be incorporated to help reduce the project’s carbon footprint.

What Do Mobile Classrooms Cost?

The cost of modular construction will depend on the size of your building, the quality of materials, the complexity of your design specifications, and the cost of prep work required at the building site.

Portable classroom prices vary by region and typically range from $50 to greater than $200 per square foot depending on grade (base, mid-grade, premium, elite) and whether you choose wood frame or steel frame construction.

Try the Modular Genius Building Calculator to estimate the cost of the classroom(s) you have in mind. It asks general questions about your proposed project (use type, approximate dimensions, number of rooms needed and other pertinent details) and delivers a floor plan, specifications, price quote and a design brochure via email in 60 seconds.
