These modular units are LEED Silver Certified, meaning that they help provide a healthy environment through improved air quality, use of natural light, and better insulation. These modular units include Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs). SIPs are more energy efficient, cost effective, and stronger than typical wood-frame construction.
The modular units on this project are also designed to provide improved durability so they can retain their structural integrity during multiple moves and last more than 50 years. Each modular classroom will also be constructed and shipped as complete 24-foot-wide units.
This means the classrooms do not have joint lines that can shift and misalign, protecting them from unwanted air and moisture. The modular classrooms look like permanent classrooms on the inside thanks to the use of painted drywall, drop ceilings, and oversized windows.
