Demountable or portable classrooms are the answer to the schools’ overcrowding problem. As opposed to conventionally built classrooms, portable classrooms are faster to construct. They could also be relocated to be more accessible for the students and academics. The design and specification could be modified to respond to the demand for it and they are durable and sturdy to withstand the constant wear and tear of being used by countless students.
When there is a sudden and unexpected influx of students, using portable classrooms is a great alternative. There are some concerns with regard to the use of demountable classrooms, but these concerns are outweighed by the benefits. School officials are relieved from thinking about how to accommodate students if there are no classroom spaces because of the faster assembling of these portable offices. The classes would not be disrupted because of the lack of classroom since putting together these portable offices takes little time and effort. Within a few weeks, portable classrooms are built and ready to use.
Portable classrooms could be relocated wherever they are needed. For example, there is a need for additional classrooms for elementary students. When schools buy a portable classroom, it could be located on the grounds near the elementary building. If in case by next year, most of the elementary students graduated to being high school students, the same portable classroom could now be relocated near the high school building to accommodate the same students but are now on a different school level. With accessible locations such as these, the students would not have a hard time transferring from one class to another since the portable classroom is near their other classes.
Portable classrooms are customizable and could be designed to look the same as the existing buildings or to complement their colors. The interior could also be modified to suit the needs of the students who would be using them. Since there are portable classrooms that could be used for the long term, the specifications for the design and appearance is flexible, to meet the users’ requirement. The clients could provide their input with regards to the construction and installation to make the classrooms more customized.
Since portable classrooms still need to meet certain requirements by the state such as electrical, plumbing, mechanical and national codes as an establishment that is safe for the use of students, you could be sure that these portable classrooms are sturdy and secure. Portable classrooms could also be used as storage rooms or club rooms if in case the problem for additional space for learning environment is already met.
The start of every academic year is at times met with difficult challenges such as inadequate learning and extracurricular spaces for increasing student body, the additional cost to accommodate new students, construction of new buildings is not completed before the start of classes. These are just some of the typical problems that school administrators face on a yearly basis. Fortunately, all these problems could be resolved by either buying or renting portable classrooms.
