The rise of portable classrooms in recent years is one of the more innovative alternatives to portable storage containers. The idea stems from the rise of prefabricated houses and the need for alternative applications for temporary buildings.
Portable or modular classrooms made of portable storage containers are cost-effective for schools that need more space at home and abroad to accommodate teachers, students, and other teachers without sacrificing school budgets.
They can be used as labs, media centers, libraries, or classrooms for everyday courses. They can also be used as a venue for extracurricular activities and club gatherings, or as additional office space to avoid encroaching on more public spaces in the school, such as libraries, gyms, and cafeterias.
For children in poor areas to receive a good education, K-home proposed a modular container school in Kenya and has finished it in 2020.01.
The design mainly includes classrooms, offices, playgrounds, dining rooms and other facilities. Among them, the container classroom is the most needed and most important part. The container classroom is composed of three standard container houses, which accommodate 36 students. Each component of the container is pre-produced in the factory and can be directly installed on the site, which can save a lot of time and cost.
