Healthy Classroom Options for Every Student

April 13, 2016 in Green Buildings

We understand how important it is to provide healthy building options to our customers. That’s why Satellite Shelters is proud to provide Portable Classroom Solutions to our customers within school districts that already take advantage of many of the environmentally friendly options outlined below.

Whether you’re looking for a few additional classrooms or an entire school, Satellite Shelters can help ease classroom overcrowding and meet your school’s growing needs.

Modular Construction, at its core, is fundamentally green and environmentally friendly due to the nature of off-site construction. Check out a few ways that our Portable Classrooms are green:

  1. Portable Classrooms are Factory Built
    • Construction and Material Waste is significantly reduced
    • Construction Noise and On-site Traffic is greatly minimized
    • No Construction Delays because of inclement weather
  2. They are Reusable & Relocatable
    • Modular Classroom Solutions are built to last through multiple users and need to withstand transportation to your site. Because of this reinforced construction, modular classrooms can be relocated to different sites and still reused as new buildings for these schools after the first use.
  3. They are Flexible & Adaptable
    • When needs change, modular buildings can be disassembled to add or remove one or more ‘modules’ quickly in order to minimize site disruptions.
  4. Additional Green Friendly Options & Modifications that can be made to Portable Classrooms:
    • Motion Sensor Lights, Faucets, Hand Dryers, etc.
    • Programmable Thermostats
    • Energy Star Products
    • Green Label Cleaning Supplies
