Top 5 Questions for Buying a Prefabricated Modular Building
When young families start moving into a new housing community the demand for local daycare services increases immediately – especially if both parents work and a full time nanny (or grandparent) is not an option. This is why a prefabricated modular building and a portable classroom are used by daycare center operators throughout the United States as a fast and effective way to provide safe and secure learning spaces where and when demand peaks.
If you manage a daycare business and are considering using a prefabricated modular building to open a new location or expand into a growing community there are 5 top level questions that need to be answered before you agree to buy or rent a modular. These questions are:
1. Design – what is the ideal floor plan for your new childcare center? Consider everything from the amount of occupants you want to accommodate to what your licensing requirements are. Have a good idea of the exterior finishes, interior finishes, layout, window and door locations and technology needs.
3. Permits and Licensing – what local building and safety requirements will need to be met in order to obtain permits and have permission to open your center? What state and federal licensing will you need to obtain before opening the new center?
