Madison Modular Classroom

Madison Elementary School Classrooms

Project Description

Client: Madison Middle School
Location: Redondo Beach, CA
Buildings: Permanent Modular Classrooms
Year Completed: 2014

Project Overview

Seeking a dramatically new and improved platform for learning, consistent with today’s hi-tech world called for a new standard of excellence far exceeding the conventional model for classroom construction. Eventually, this led them to Modus Systems, Inc., the innovative and forward-thinking designer and builder who has been Redefining Modular ™ construction of classrooms, gymnasiums and MPR buildings. By creating a blueprint for designing and building the classrooms of the future, Modus has raised the bar for what can be achieved in classrooms by both teachers and students in technologically advanced learning environments.

The Result

Designing and building these new classrooms for Redondo proved to be a labor of love for Modus and a revelation for the district.

Differing in size, some classrooms measuring 24’x 40’ and others 30’x 32’, all are bright and airy, and distinguished by a feeling of openness, thanks to 11’x 3’tall ceilings, drop down ceiling fans that keep the air circulating at all times, skylights that provide an abundance of natural light in all of the classrooms, and a Teaching Wall with a multi-purpose white board and storage system that eliminates clutter and maximizes classroom space. Two teacher areas include a wash station, sinks and a drinking fountain.

Project Overview

At Modus System, Inc., we are Redefining Modular ™. Our single-minded dedication to quality and innovation has enabled us to become what we are today: California’s benchmark builder of Modular Classrooms, Gymnasiums and MPR buildings for K-12 school districts and charter schools. This has led to the development of our trademarked building strategy, called Modular Expandability ™. It has also provided us with the impetus for creating a blueprint for designing and building the classrooms of the future.

The first of these classrooms has changed the shape of modular classroom construction both today and into the future. These new classrooms, being built by Modus Systems, Inc., open up a dramatically new and improved platform for learning in today’s hi-tech world.

In a Modus-designed classroom, gone are conventional walls and ceilings. In their place are construction elements exposed throughout the inner structure, openly engaging students’innate curios- ity and creating an environment that fosters an interactive, flexible space for learning. Vertical and horizontal joints, X braces, lateral supports and fittings, are all totally visible, challenging students to use their analytical minds to figure out how things are connected, and to ultimately identify cause and effect and train themselves to think in a manner consistent with today’s Design Based Learning.

Further enhanced by the brilliantly coordinated use of soothing colors, the feeling of “openness”from within extends to the outside environment. Loft architecture gives the feeling of being outdoors. Windows replace walls, with even the doors themselves being all glass Bi-Fold Nano doors. Artificial light is replaced by skylights, through which the sun shines. Another plus is that these new class- rooms are more efficient to maintain, and they are surprisingly affordable to build.

Delta Charter High School Modular Gymnasium

Delta Charter High School Gymnasium

Project Description

Client: New Jerusalem School & Delta Charter High School
Location: Tracy, CA
Buildings: Permanent Modular Gymnasium Building, Attached Modular Lobby Building, Ticket Booth, AV Room, Exterior Self Contained Water Tank Building
Square Footage: 10,000 ft2
Year Completed: 2012

Project Overview

Not only would this need to be a multi- purpose gymnasium in the truest sense of that term, it would have to serve the needs of not just one school, but two: New Jerusalem Elementary School and Delta Charter School, both on the same campus. In addition, the project would include the design and construction of four new classrooms.

Ironically, all of the elements that made this project so unique led to the inevitable selection of Modus Systems, Inc., the brand that has Redefined ModularTM construction, as the most qualified designer and builder of gym- nasiums and multi-purpose rooms to undertake it.

Result

Working closely with New Jerusalem’s team of architects, Modus designed and built an 10,000 square foot gymnasium,

with an attached tank and lobby building for ticket sales and an impressive display area for trophies. Skylights create a feeling of expansiveness for boys and girls basketball, volleyball, assemblies, piano recitals, theatrical productions, and more.

Also available to students is an AV room, where students have the opportunity to learn to do video production of sporting events, including instant replay. And both schools take great pride in seeing both their logos on two different sides of the building.
