Modular Project: Old Sturbridge Academy Charter Public School
A brand new charter school, Old Sturbridge Academy Charter Public School, received their charter approval in late February, and needed to be up and running by start of the following school year. The school had land, but no building. Less than 6 months to design, build and install over 18,000 square feet of school space was a formidable challenge for the school to overcome. Vanguard Modular Building Systems’ solution was a combination of 9 modules from our fleet inventory, and 12 ‘new from the factory’ floors. In just over 100 days, the entire school building was built, installed, and completed with an occupancy permit.
Housing all school activities for 160 students, the 300′ long modular school building includes 12 classrooms, restrooms, administrative office suite, cafeteria, and a nurse’s office. The school’s exterior was finished with vinyl siding to blend in with the façade of the existing buildings as you enter Old Sturbridge Village.
Off-site construction made it possible for this school to open on time, by the reuse of existing modular units in combination with newly built units. Sustainability is all about reclamation and reuse of existing resources which is exactly what was done on this project.
A solution had to be developed to connect the reused existing modular units with the newly built units, and also meet the school’s layout requirements. Through collaborative innovation, a site-built conditioned connector, serving as the main entrance vestibule, was built between the new and reused modular building wings. The connector serves the exact purpose for which it was intended, providing a seamless transition from one wing of the building to another.
