Portable Storage & Office Solutions for Education Industries

Portable Modular Classrooms

Twenty-first-century schools have twenty-first-century needs, and modular school buildings and modular classroomsoffer the flexibility and versatility to meet those demands. Portable classrooms allow schools to expand their learning areas in the most efficient way possible. Whether more space is desired because of an increase in student population or a need for social distancing, these units offer a safe classroom alternative that meets all state building codes.

Modular School Buildings: What’s in a Name?

Let’s start with the basics: what is a modular school building? 

Modular school buildings, also known as modular classrooms and portable classrooms, are standalone portable units that can be easily moved, come fully assembled, and take mere minutes to install. They come empty and ready for you to make them your own. 

Due to their portability and the fact that they are extremely easy to reconfigure, modular classrooms are perfect for lessons, activities, computer labs, nurses’ stations, and faculty spaces. They can even be used as a place to store equipment when not being used by students or staff. 

Are Modular School Buildings for Me?

Modular school buildings andmodular classrooms are a modern solution to evolving education and academic space needs. Today's schools, colleges, and universities are not confined to the traditional classrooms of the past. With modular classrooms, educational clients get flexible, versatile, and portable classroom space that can be moved around campus as spatial needs shift, change, and grow. We could sing the praises of modular classrooms all day and night, but are these units the right choice for you and your needs? Here are a few questions to help you figure that out:

  • Are Your Spatial Needs Temporary? Modular classrooms are best for customers with space-related needs lasting around 12 months or less. Now, that’s not to say that our modular classrooms wouldn’t be a good fit for a business or institution with needs lasting longer than 12 months, but 12 months seems to be the golden period for the use of these spaces. 
  • Are You Using These Spaces for Students, Faculty, or Storage? If the answer to this is yes, then modular classrooms are a great bet for you and your team. If you are using your portable classroom space to house students or remote lessons, the electrical hookups and HVAC capacity that these units come with will provide comfortable and connected learning experiences. For customers looking to make our modular classrooms dual-use spaces (storage and learning), temperature controls help preserve books, electronics, and other sensitive materials. As an added perk, all modular classrooms are ADA compliant and fully accessible for all students and staff. 
  • Are Your Educational Needs a Moving Target? One of the best aspects of our modular classrooms is that they are highly portable and relatively easy to move around without compromising their physical or structural integrity. This aspect of their design makes them ideal for educational clients who have needs that may change in geography throughout a rental period. For example, some of our clients need to move their units across campus mid-year to meet multiple spatial needs with one unit. Other clients take one unit to multiple education sites, allowing their unit to pull double or even triple duty.

While everyone’s process of deciding whether or not modular classrooms are for them looks different, these questions are a good start in assessing whether or not Mobile Mini’s modular classrooms are a good fit for you, your business, your team, and your needs. 

Modular School Buildings, Portable Classrooms, and More

Modular school buildings and portable classrooms are adaptable multipurpose units. They can do it all, from administrative offices and library rooms to tech labs and after-school activity spaces. The benefit of going with a modular classroom is that you have the flexibility to change up your space — and even move it to a new location — as your needs change. Maybe you need a classroom for half of the year and a lab for the rest. No problem! Modular classrooms can be moved around your school campus as necessary.

What Are the Benefits and Uses of Modular School Buildings?

Modular school buildings and modular classrooms have many uses and can enhance the functionality and efficiency of the schools that use them. 

Some benefits include: 

  • Portability:As their name suggests, one of the best aspects of portable classrooms is that they can easily be moved around your school or campus to meet changing needs and demands. Portability also means that you can move your portable classroom without damaging the unit's integrity and structure. 
  • Flexibility/Multi-Use: Portable classrooms can be easily reconfigured to fill a variety of needs and uses. From mobile libraries and computer labs to learning spaces and administrative rooms, portable classrooms are easy to reorganize, meaning that one unit can meet multiple demands. 
  • Cost Effectiveness: Renting a construction trailer or office is much cheaper than buying a unit. When you rent with Mobile Mini, we take care of delivery, relocation, and pickup, saving you stress and expense. We also handle all unit maintenance (in the event that it's needed) and regularly paint and clean our containers to keep them aesthetically fresh and structurally sound.
  • Security: When you’re dealing with valuable school materials and equipment, you don’t want to leave anything to chance. Our modular school buildings and modular classrooms are made from 100% corrugated steel, which means they are strong, durable, and built to last. These classrooms are weatherproof and will keep your students, faculty, and equipment safe and secure.
