  When To Consider A Temporary Classroom Building
There are times when every school faces a shortage of space due to increased numbers of pupils or simply due to the fact that a few of the typical classrooms may be in the process of being renovated or repaired. However, there are situations in which waiting for a classroom to open up are no longer a prospect, while stuffing more students into tighter spaces is also not an option. As a school administrator it can be hard to decide when it is time to add on an annex and when a temporary classroom will suffice.

Before the proper decision can be made, a clear understanding of what a temporary classroom building consists of is required. Routinely, a temporary building is a modular unit that is placed outside of a school and either purchased or hired to create new space for a school building that is short on square footage. These buildings usually can house one to two classrooms or can be used as temporary administrative space so that space within a school can be converted into classroom space helping to alleviate the swell of students inside of the structure.

Many times when a temporary structure is erected it is because building onto the school building is considered not to be an option. There are many reasons for this, which may span from the fact that the temporary classroom space is only needed for a short period of time, the building is historical in nature and administrators want to preserve the integrity of the structure, or because it is simply not a cost effective choice to build an annex for the building. The reason that a modular classroom building must be built is a large part of deciding if now is the time to construct temporary space.

There are a few situations in which a temporary classroom should always be a first choice, such as when classroom space inside the building is under repair. In this type of situation it is clear that the building will only be short on space for a specified period of time and only a small amount of space is needed to remedy the problem, the same goes for short term renovations.

Another situation is when a certain grade has a fairly large number of pupils, but the expected class sizes that will follow are quite a bit smaller in size. In this case building a small temporary structure to house the additional students would be a cost effective way to address the short term problem.

However, if classroom space concerns are likely to be a problem over the next few years and beyond, then a temporary space may not be the solution. This is due to the fact that the problem will not actually be remedied and there is a time period in which a major change will need to be made to accommodate growth, such as building a larger school or a permanent annex.
