Modular Construction for Schools

Modular Construction for Schools

Modular Genius has an outstanding record in modular construction for schools. Whether you need classrooms or other school buildings, we can customize a solution that meets your unique needs.

Modular Genius, located in Joppa, Maryland, provides design-to-occupancy turnkey modular solutions for every educational space requirement you can imagine. We can also serve as general contractor for architectural renderings to foundations and site preparation to final paving and landscaping.

Modular construction enables public and private schools and universities as well as corporate trainers to easily resolve expanding enrollment issues, and add libraries, computer and science labs, media centers, gymnasiums, bookstores, teacher lounges, daycare centers, offices and other functional spaces to their campuses.

Benefits of Modular Construction

  1. High Quality –Your modular educational facility will be prefabricated with the same materials as a conventional building, or better, but to more demanding tolerances. It will be reusable, relocatable, and will meet or exceed required building, safety and occupancy codes.
  2. Affordability –Budgets are always tight, so knowing the cost up front will give you peace of mind. In general, modular buildings are at least 20% less expensive than their stick-built counterparts. Try the Modular Genius Building Calculator to estimate the cost of modular classroom(s) you have in mind and receive a floor plan, specifications, price quote, and a design brochure via email in 60 seconds.
  3. Speed to Occupancy – Many modular building projects can be manufactured and installed 40% to 50% faster than stick built buildings, often in less than 90 days.
  4. Less Disruption – With most major work occurring offsite, the distractions of noise, dust, debris and vehicle traffic are greatly reduced, minimizing the disruption of children and teachers.
  5. Fast Disaster Recovery – Modular buildings can be quickly deployed after a fire, flood, earthquake, tornado or other devastating natural disaster to get students back to normal as soon as possible.

Examples of Our Work

Modular Genius’ innovative modular 7,200 square foot Barrie School research and learning studio in Silver Spring, MD was designed with tall ceilings, moveable walls and lots of windows, and can be converted into large and small learning spaces or to a large lecture room, as needed. It was built from reclaimed materials and recycled post-consumer products, and features an elaborate waste water management system.

A New Jersey school district strict in need of additional space for administrative and guidance offices opted for a prefabricated modular building instead of an expensive conventional addition to their existing building. Modular Genius provided over 3,000 square feet of modular office space to alleviate their growing pains, including ADA ramps, restrooms, and child study and registration offices.

Evergreen Elementary School was originally designed with environmentally friendly features and was awarded LEED “gold” status in October 2010. It was important that new portable expansion classrooms also incorporate green features. Modular Genius utilized custom sized windows to match the innovative school, installed waterless urinals, a white rubber roof to reflect sunlight, and a CS 2000 energy management system to reduce energy consumption. This project received an Award of Distinction from the Modular Building Institute.
