Temporary classrooms are undergoing a major metamorphosis. New styles are coming up in the form of prefabricated structures which can be rearranged to suit the classroom in session. Nevertheless, they have the same conveniences of permanent classrooms.
These new structured have a few things going for them:
Flexibility in that they can be rearranged to suit a new environment in the classroom.
- Construction is done quickly.
- They can be used for a variety of needs.
They use a range of building materials in place of the usual shed-style ones.
Prefabricated classrooms by Smart Space Instant Building include high-tech installations and excellent designs that have gained the admiration of the construction industry. Also, they are constructed with response to demand and growth in mind. In addition, the plan is to have classrooms that will motivate learning and remain flexible enough for public education. They must also be able to support growth in student population.
Many education stakeholders hail these modern modular classrooms as innovative and the future of education. The classrooms meet the expectations of the community especially with regard to creating a conducive learning environment.
The classroom needs to be flexible in order to be tailor made for specific schools. This is inclusive of libraries and school halls which would be affected by student population growth.
The expectation is that these buildings will be able to adapt to a range of different designs including storied options to replace the designs that are currently in use. Simply put, while the classrooms will have the usual comforts and conveniences of a permanent classroom, they will also be reconfigurable.
Student Population Growth
Student population growth is one of the reasons pushing the need for modular classrooms. They are cost effective and take a significantly less time to construction in comparison to the permanent alternatives. Moreover, the demand for public education by parents requires the education department to take measures to address the need to create space fast.
There is however need to inform parents about the benefits of temporary learning spaces in order to change their views on them. Many are of the feeling that temporary structures are uncomfortable and not conducive for learning. They also believe that they take up space on school grounds.
However, there are success stories as quite a number of learning institutions have adopted temporary structures and they have proved to be quite popular with students. Having a building wrapped in a wooden skin dropped in the school grounds would be quite the event for learners.
Prefabricated classrooms definitely provide a solution with regard to space, population as well as costs needed to provide the same. Furthermore, they would not be taking anything from permanent structures as they come with the same comforts and facilities. They can also be customised to the particular specifications of individual schools.
It is therefore possible that the education sector will have a few of these structures rolling out in the coming years and their benefits will be recognized by parents as a great solution to the problem of growing student population.
