  Augment Space Through Temporary Classrooms
Many schools are finding the process of adding capacity by way of more classrooms or floors to an existing building a big problem. That is because they hardly get the required time to ensure uninterrupted construction during the vacation time and continuing with such activity during proper school season can be very disturbing to not only the faculty but also to the students. Many of these schools had probably not bargained for the rapid increase in enrollment numbers of students seeking education some years back and are now finding it a big problem to accommodate all students. The result is that they have to turn away students and that is quite unfortunate considering the impact appropriate education and training at the right time can have on a person.

So what is the alternative or solution to this problem?

One solution that has been tried rather successfully by many schools and is becoming the preferred way to deal with this problem is that of setting up temporary classrooms in the space that they can find either in their own school premises or somewhere nearby so that students do not have to face difficulty in continuing with their education.

These structures are constructed using modular construction technology that allows optimisation of the space, builds capacity as per the need and ensures that students do not have to be sent to other facilities till the time the construction on their existing structure is completed. They contain modules that make available classrooms and can be brought to the site and assembled within a few hours. They are normally prefabricated at another place and do not take much time either. You can thus have multi-storey classrooms erected or set up within a short period of time.

Another benefit of such temporary classrooms is that they can be put to use again and again. Their design is such that they can be assembled, disassembled and transported to the place you want. It is possible to use them as administrative offices or training centres and so on and thus the return on investment is definitely there. Schools can thus justify the onetime expense. That has made these structures the preferred choice for many schools seeking to renovate or add capacity to their existing structure.

The environment friendly aspects of such modular structures are also very encouraging and useful elements to consider for not only schools but also other institutions. By going for energy efficient lighting and reducing the amount of wastage, there are good savings to be had in operational expenses. The fact that these structures are also prefabricated at a place far from the schools is another positive feature since they do not disturb students.

Those schools that are strained for cash or budget have the option to go for some financing option as well like lease, or least-to-own models for such temporary classrooms and thus ensure that they do not deprive any student of education.
