Buildings: Permanent Modular Classrooms
Year Completed: 2014
Selecting a builder for 13 new classrooms was not a task the Redondo Unified School District took lightly. 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 most innovative and forward-thinking designer and builder of classrooms today. 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.
Designing and building these new classrooms for Redondo proved to be a labor of love for Modus and a revelation for the school. 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.
