Perhaps, among the more innovative alternate uses for portable storage containers is the rise of portable classrooms in recent years. The idea was born out of the rise in prefab housing and the demand and need for alternative applications for temporary buildings.
Portable or modular classrooms made from portable storage containers are cost-effective for schools here and abroad that need more space for teachers, students, and other faculty members, without breaking a school’s budget.
They can be set up as classrooms to house a science lab, media center, library or daily classes. They can also act as spaces for after-school activities and clubs to meet, or as additional office space to avoid encroaching on more communal spaces in schools, such as libraries, gyms, and cafeterias.
Traditional Mobile Storage Options for Schools
The stipulation, however, is that portable classrooms do require significant modifications – such as hooking up electricity and other utilities – to make them viable options. That’s why most schools more commonly rent mobile storage containers for a variety of traditional storage uses.
School districts, colleges, and other educational facilities here and abroad have stored everything from classroom supplies and sports equipment to items displaced during a summer renovation of a school building.
In addition, a range of other educational institutions, churches, non-profit organizations, and municipalities utilize portable storage units to stow general equipment and supplies for everyday use and for outdoor events such as fairs and concerts.
