Prefab School Buildings

What are Prefab Classroom Buildings?

A Prefab classroom building consists of several separate modules which are constructed completely off-site in a climate-controlled factory environment. As a result, there’s no need for the materials, building equipment, machinery and manpower to be transported to the site. Upon completion, the modules are shipped to the desired location where they are brought together to form a complete building. The unique construction method means that modular buildings can have several advantages over traditionally built ones. And this can be especially beneficial for educational facilities.

1. Speed

Rising enrollment rates are definitely good news. However, constructing enough classroom space to accommodate a big number of students does take time. Building new classrooms using traditional construction can last between 6 to 12 months. So often, the whole process is impossible to finish before school break is over. Luckily, lack of time is usually not an issue when building a modular school.

2. Flexibility

No school is a permanent structure. Educational facilities are constantly changing whether by adding new departments, increasing their staff or attracting more students each year. As a result, when constructing a school building, it’s important to consider the ever-changing needs of the facility. Unlike traditionally constructed buildings which are rigid and permanent, modular school buildings are a lot more flexible and adaptable.

3. Greater Quality

The fact that the construction process takes place in a controlled environment doesn’t only cut down building time dramatically, it also means there’s a reduced risk of mistakes. For one, all the building materials are safely stored indoors without being exposed to factors like weather and pests that can cause mould or other damage. As a result, the prefab building is less likely to experience structural problems in the future.

5. Environmentally-Friendly

Educational facilities do not only impart practical knowledge but they also help young people grow up into conscientious adults that help make their communities better. With pollution and global warming an imminent threat.
