  Considerations When Setting Up Demountable Classrooms
It is natural and logical for schools to do a cost benefit analysis of a particular project before actually getting down to doing it or assigning the project to some professional and that means asking a lot of questions concerning every element of the project. This would make it easy for them to justify the expenses.

When it comes to demountable classrooms, the following questions are of special significance. These are only some of the questions and by no means an exhaustive check list, but they are of significant importance nevertheless. They are as under:

a) An estimate of the cost pertaining to the transportation, laying the foundation, installing power supply, electronics including computer terminals, preparing the roof, safety and security procedures and so on.

b) How to budget for the expense that has been identified? Should it be taken as an operating expense or something from the capital budget?

c) Would there be additional costs due to air-conditioning or any other requirement going ahead?

d) The benefit that would accrue in terms of the open space that would become available.

e) What would be the sanitary and hygiene facilities?

f) Since most demountables would have stairs, how would they cater to disabled students?

Fortunately, by now, most counties do set aside a budget for any expenditure on educational facilities and this resource can be used to meet exigencies as well as accommodation requirements even at short notice. The fund is supposed to aid response to a dynamic situation that can emerge any time and that includes increase in enrollments, emergencies caused by some natural disaster or some renovation work that becomes necessary due to routine maintenance work.

There is strong commitment from the concerned education authorities to make education accessible to everybody and this includes creating the right environment for disadvantaged students suffering from any disability. So while most of them would be housed in permanent structures, if necessary, special ramps would be constructed to allow them access to such demountable classrooms as well.

The movement of the demountables and the cost of logistics are decided based on the location and the equipment that would need to be put into use. This could be shared equally between the schools and the department of education and in some cases the department itself bears the entire cost.

All sanitation and hygiene facilities along with what should be the open space is decided by individual school principals after taking into consideration the number of students and the added space that would become available at their disposal. This is also a function of the design and shape of the structure that would be discussed with the developer. It would vary from site to site and there is no standardisation that can be achieved in this.

The government also understands that some schools which have demountable classrooms over a period of time would want to replace them and that is why they do fund such schools and help them do so.
