Whether your private school is considering adding modular classrooms to an existing facility or constructing an entire campus with modular units, you likely are interested in understanding what temporary and permanent modular classrooms have to offer your private school’s students, faculty, and staff.
Benefits of affordable modular classrooms for private schools
Few private schools are flushed with cash to the point where money is not an object. Most private educational institutions are adequately funded but tend to face an ongoing cash flow challenge. Vanguard Modular serves schools in both financial scenarios, and we are able to do it through flexible classroom financing options, building customization, and seemingly endless upgrade possibilities.
Private schools find modular classrooms make financial sense
Beyond tight budgets, private educational institutions often chose to finance modular classrooms to wisely preserve working capital for use in other areas of investment. Many of our clients want to add classrooms on property they do not own. This scenario is where leasing portable classrooms is a perfect solution, because leased classrooms ease student crowding while maintain a high quality of education, with little to no upfront capital. A much different cash flow result when being compared with buying land and building.
Your private school may want to lease a modular classroom if you:
- Are leasing the property on which your school is located
- Do not want to pay a large lump-sum to get your classroom building in place
- Anticipate future expansion that will change your schools classroom space needs
- Need temporary classroom space until your permanent classroom building is ready
- Have experienced a rapid enrollment increase and need a fast build classroom space solution
- Are expanding programs that you are not certain will be implemented permanently
- Plan to renovate an existing building and need temporary classrooms to accommodate students
Consider a custom modular classroom building for your private school if you:
- Want your new building to match exterior finishes on existing structures
- Are looking for particular interior appearances
- Have specific safety feature requirements in mind
- Need a specific classroom layout
Custom modular construction for private school expansion
Private schools are most often known for both maintaining high quality education as well as having beautiful campuses. School expansion using modular classroom construction does not mean you have to compromise the look and feel of your campus or classroom space. To the contrary, permanent modular buildings can be entirely customized to seamlessly fit in with the other structures on your campus. Exterior & interior finishes, building layout, classroom technology, alarm and intercom systems, etc. can easily be integrated into a custom modular classroom ensuring student safety and architectural assimilation with other buildings on your private school campus.
Quick build custom modular classroom buildings
Waiting lists and overcrowding become most recognizable toward the end of the school year when enrollments for the following year begin pouring in. Quick build modular classroom buildings can be designed, installed, and ready for your students in time for the start of the following school year, conventional construction cannot. The primary reason for this fast construction is modular classrooms are built off-site at the same time the site is being prepared with any necessary excavation and foundations.
Cost effective modular classroom buildings
There are several key costs on almost any typical construction project which are: disruption of students, safety concerns, time spent on project oversite by the school. Quite often only the dollars and cents associated with the actual building project are quantified while the costs of these legitimate areas of concern are not brought into the calculation. Modular constructed classrooms address each one of these cost concerns simply by using a rapid building process.
Getting your building up to 50% faster with modular construction reduces disruption of students, limits safety risks, and shortens the amount of time school officials have to spend on the project.
Private schools choose modular classrooms for construction quality
Did you know that modular buildings are often built with 20% more framing material that site constructed buildings? You must consider that modular classrooms are not only built for longevity like conventional construction; they also have to withstand the rigors of transportation and installation, which may even include being set on their foundations with a crane. Quality is an absolute necessity for modular classrooms.
Assembly-line processes are more conducive to consistency and quality control than other forms of production. This is why modular classroom building construction quality surpasses that of site built construction. The modular manufacturing plants have dedicated quality control personnel that inspect each classroom unit at designated stages of the fabrication process to ensure that they not only meet the specifications, but also meet or exceed certain quality standards.
