  The Many Pluses Of Modular School Buildings
Over the years, the concept of modular school buildings has taken strong root and many structures have come up based on the requirements put forward by individual schools. The reasons for their acceptance are not far to seek and they are as under:

a) Can be erected or fabricated far more quickly than conventional brick and mortar structures.

b) Far less expensive and much cost effective in terms of sustenance over a period of time.

c) Minimal disruption at the site of the school as compared to any traditional methods of construction.

d) Existence of flexibility in terms of space, any upgradation to be done later on.

e) Adherence to all standard building codes thereby guaranteeing safety and durability.

They are thus a very effective solution to the fast changing demographics and challenges posed by increasing school enrollments. It is obviously not in anybody's interest to turn away students desirous of studying simply due to lack of infrastructure facilities. Moreover, this concept can also be applied very effectively to create library, administration, restroom, daycare as well as laboratories to suit the specific requirements of individual educational institutions.

Schools can thus depend on reputed fabricators who have been in the business to create hygienic and instantly usable space that is in conformity with local regulations. The fabricators or creators of such buildings are in a position to create customised solutions as well and it is up to the schools to specify clearly what they have in mind. They only have to ensure that the developer commits to assist the school with the required permit processes and other regulatory norms so that they are not put to any inconvenience later on.

The fact that such modular school buildings can be relocated as per the need is a great advantage. They are mainly multi-sectional in their configuration and therefore can be disassembled without much of a problem. So schools looking for additional space and finding that their budget is too limited to go for a conventional building structure have the option of going for these structures. They can sit down with the fabricator, explain their requirements to them and within a couple of months have the structure of their choice without causing any disruption to their existing classrooms or school precincts.

Another development that is worth mentioning is that these modern structures have improved vastly over what they used to be till some years back. They now look sleek and well designed and sometimes it is difficult to tell whether they are prefabricated or a conventional brick and mortar building that you are seeing.

The utility of these structures as mentioned above is not restricted to just classrooms. You can have very nicely functional computer rooms, gymnasiums and training facilities. The structures can be upgraded to improve energy efficiency and to reduce maintenance costs as you go along and it is this flexibility that is making modular school buildings a very viable alternative for many schools.
