Modular Classroom Buildings
The Hunter Knepshield line of modular Classroom Buildings changes the way a modular classroom building systems should look. With only 8” from finish grade to floor height allows entrances to have one stair or a short ramp on grade. Buildings have roof slope choices as well as exterior choices to match existing school or surrounding environment.
Our Classroom Buildings are not trailers with Air Conditioners slapped on the side and flat roofs. Our designs allow for entrances from the outside or modular hallways inside. The interiors can be customized for the different curriculums and your required equipment. Classroom Buildings designs have restrooms and if requested storage areas.
The key benefit of modular construction is the essential quality benefits which come with working in a controlled factory environment. Buildings are designed and built to the same, higher sustainability standards as traditional construction.
Modular construction is cheaper and less time consuming to erect compared with traditional construction methods, however it also brings with it a raft of sustainability benefits as well. Read about the three ways in which modular buildings are a lot more environmentally friendly compared to traditionally constructed buildings.
1. Use Less Energy
Nearly 90 percent of the construction of a modular building takes place off-site, hence the term “prefabricated buildings.” With this approach, there is significantly less disturbance to the environment surrounding the construction site. Due to the fact these buildings are prefabricated in a controlled factory environment, there is negligible wastage of materials resources and highly efficient use of energy. It takes almost 30 percent less time for the building to be complete compared to a traditionally constructed building.
Furthermore, modular buildings are installed with energy efficient systems for example energy efficient insulation, energy efficient fixtures, solar panels and other green features. As a result, not only is the actual construction of the building green, but the long-term running of the building also works out to be quite sustainable. Not only can modular construction reduce energy consumption during the building process by around 67 percent, it also reduces energy costs for its occupants.
2. Recycled Materials
Technology has made it possible for us to recycle almost anything. Modular buildings are constructed with recycled (and recyclable) materials for the most part. Recycled steel, recycled wood and even recycled glass are a large part of what makes up a modular building. For instance, Hunter Knepshield Company uses partitions created from post-consumer materials. Granted, not every part of the building can be made of recycled material, but all these parts can certainly be reused over and over again without seeing much wear and tear.
3. Modular Buildings are Recyclable Buildings
Modular buildings are called “portable buildings” for a reason. They can literally be transported from one place to another without having to go through the process of demolition. The term “modular” comes from the fact that these buildings are built one module (or unit) at a time and are then assembled on site. So, it stands to reason that they can also be dismantled. This makes it very easy to take down the building without disturbing the surrounding environment with dust, debris and other unwanted pollutants.
Proponents of modular construction believe it does, arguing that it can deliver greater environmental and social sustainability benefits than conventional construction can.
The modular construction approach—in which a building’s large-scale modularized components are prefabricated in an offsite manufacturing facility for rapid assembly onsite—is garnering an increasing amount of attention in the building industry. This is due in large part to the interrelated issues of the rising costs of traditional construction methods, the shortage of skilled construction labor in many areas of the country.
