What Modular Classroom Design Should you choose?
If a school or church is going to rent or buy a modular classroom the facility managers, administrators and teachers all should play a role in the floor plan design and specification selection. Regardless of the size and configuration several design features need to be considered by anyone involved in operating or maintaining the space – particularly if the modular will be used for an extended period of time.
Here are a few helpful things to consider before you start your search for a modular classroom provider:
1. How much space is needed? Consider the age of students, if there will be a teacher and an aid and what type of furnishings will need to fit in the space.
2. Will bathrooms be needed? If so, how many for each gender and what special needs will need to be accommodated?
3. Climate control. Will the modular classroom need special heating and air conditioning for your climate zone?
4. Floor, wall and ceiling finishes. Will carpet or tile flooring be better? Will art work, dry erase and chalk boards and other teaching aids be fastened to the walls? Are acoustics important?
5. Window and door locations. Where should the entrance and exit doors be located and how will the exterior steps and handicap ramp be positioned?
6. Where is the ideal location to place the modular on your property? Consider parking, pedestrian access, utility locations and security.
