About Mobile Classrooms

Overcrowded classrooms have a negative effect on the way children learn. If you are short on space, consider mobile or relocatable modular classrooms for temporary or long-term use. In a school setting, they are also ideal for use as gymnasiums, administrative offices, daycare centers, libraries, media rooms, science labs, locker rooms, equipment storage and more.

Mobile 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.

Mobile classrooms can also be quickly deployed after a fire, flood, earthquake, tornado or other devastating natural disaster to get students back to normal as soon as possible. 

Why Choose Modular?

The advantages of modular construction include:

  1. Cost-Effective – In general, modular buildings are at least 20% less expensive than their traditional stick-built counterparts. The cost 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 more than $200 per square foot, depending on grade (base, mid-grade, premium, elite) and whether you choose wood frame or steel frame construction.
  2. Quick Occupancy – Depending on the difficulty of your project, many modular building projects can be manufactured and installed in under 90 days. Because we know exactly how long it will take to construct your classroom or other school building, you can rely on a definite occupancy date.
  3. High Quality – There is no reason to sacrifice quality when you select a mobile classroom. They are constructed with the same or better building materials to more demanding tolerances, are reusable and relocatable, and meet or exceed building, safety and occupancy codes.
  4. Design Flexibility – Modular classrooms are extremely flexible. Single and multi-story structures can be designed with a myriad of interior and exterior finishes and architectural features. Façades can be finished to blend with the surrounding architecture and other structures on your campus.
  5. Energy Efficiency – Most new modular units are built with recycled steel, making them strong, fire-resistant and mold-resistant. Customers can enhance their portable classrooms with energy-efficient utilities, eco-friendly insulation and no-VOC or low-VOC interior wall and floor treatments to reduce the building’s environmental impact.

Modular construction also meets the highest level of green building standards, including LEED® certification, enabling you to balance environmental concerns with cost.

To estimate the cost of the classroom(s) you have in mind, try the Modular Genius Building Calculator. 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.
