  Demountable Classrooms Are Becoming A Viable Alternative
Demountable classrooms are becoming increasingly popular in many countries, thanks to the convenience and utility value. These classrooms are effective, as they mean fewer expenses with regards to rebuilding of concrete classrooms. When it comes to a permanent set-up, there are a number of factors that needs to be given thought to. As far as these temporary set-ups are concerned, though basic aspects of safety, hygiene still need to be kept in mind, the focus is more on other aspects like noise levels, air quality, enough lighting and so on.

With real estate space becoming a premium and the demand for better educational facilities becoming a challenge to be met by governments of both developed and developing countries, this concept is rapidly gaining ground. The fact they do not occupy much space and can be set up quickly makes them a viable alternative to conventional brick and mortar structures that have been in existence for so long. These classrooms are also the ideal option, when it comes to increasing the number of new entrants or admissions to the school, countering any drop in state funding for building brick and mortar schools and so on. When the already existing school is undergoing renovation, the students can be housed in these make shift classrooms. They are also ideal arrangements when the school has to accommodate new students for extra classes, seminars and so on that the school may wish to introduce.

The greatest advantage of these make shift classrooms is that they bring about a high degree of flexibility. As they can easily be dismantled just as easily they can be erected, the time and manpower spent on them is much less. When we speak of initial investments for building these classrooms, they are definitely lesser as compared to the brick and mortar set-up. Also, the schools can always use the funds which have ear-marked as operating budget instead of utilising the capital budget. For outdoor programs, such a setup is really helpful and it also helps in bringing down your overall budget.

The only probable disadvantage of these demountable classrooms is that many a time, the finish may not be as good. When it comes to aesthetic quality, it may not match the standards of a permanent set-up. Also, the quality of the building and materials used may be of an inferior quality. Another thing which should be noted is that at times, basic amenities may have to be compromised, just for the sake of saving some money. But these are issues that can be solved depending on the location chosen for the structure.

If some compromise does take place to bring down the cost, then you must ensure that you take care of regular maintenance of the structure to prolong its life. The roofs, doors and other areas need to be inspected more often than usual in order to quickly rectify any issues that are noticed. Any laxity on this front on the part of school authorities to maintain these temporary arrangements should not be tolerated.
