Portable classrooms have become a common feature in both public and private school facilities as communities grow and school enrollment numbers increase. Despite being a practical solution to space shortage problems, the cost of these classrooms is often underestimated.
According to Matt Banes, founder of iModular.com, “Many schools involve more than a facility manager in the process of planning and purchasing portables which can lead to some surprising facts and figures about the amount of money required to rent or purchase the needed portables and install them according to regulations.”
To help decision-makers understand the cost and logistics of portable classroom installation, the video below was created to educate board members, facility planners, teachers, and administrators. It covers various aspects of the project and the associated costs, and serves as a helpful resource for anyone looking to embark on this process.
It’s important to share this video with your school’s decision-making team and carefully consider every step of the process before making any significant decisions. Additionally, the Modular Classroom Checklist post provides helpful information for those looking to understand more about portable classrooms.
Please note that this post has been updated, but the video it references was produced in 2016. It’s important to keep in mind that the costs of all aspects related to installing portable classrooms have increased since then. However, the overall information presented in the video is still relevant and accurate by today’s standards.
