Container Schools has become very popular in the last twenty-five to thirty years. These schools are for students aged thirteen and older who have demonstrated an interest in working with shipping containers and other heavy duty industrial equipment. When selecting a shipping container school, you need to determine what kind of learning experience is needed. Some schools offer a basic classroom type environment that will allow students to learn by doing. Other schools are geared towards providing a hands on learning experience that will involve working with actual equipment while learning.
It is important to look at what the shipping container schools offer as well as their costs. Some shipping container schools do not offer any type of technical training; however, they may have a very large network of technical support people who can assist you should you have questions or problems during the course of your career. Other container schools may offer specialized classes. You want to choose shipping container schools that offer specialized classes that will focus on the specific needs of your industry.
The size of a container school is also a factor. The larger the school the more expensive it will be. In addition to tuition costs, the cost of living in an area where the school is located is another consideration. Schools located in more remote areas may cost less per student than those located in more populated areas. In addition to the cost of educational facilities, you should also consider the equipment and supplies that will be provided to you once you have enrolled at the shipping container school. Some schools will provide you with everything you need to get started including housing, transportation and work experience.
One important aspect of looking into a shipping container school is to make sure that there are sufficient numbers of classrooms for the number of containers being used in the operation. There are different rules and regulations in place with respect to how many containers need to be kept in a fleet. A large number of containers will mean a higher demand for classrooms. This will translate to increased prices for supplies and overhead expenses. If the number of classrooms required to house students is too large then there may be a decrease in the number of employees who will be required to man these facilities.
Storage facilities are also a factor to consider when choosing a shipping container school. Containers do have limitations as to the number of students they can safely hold, as well as how much room they must store other types of items. For example, shipping containers are limited to holding 50,000 US gallons of fluids. The amount of electricity allowed is also a factor and is typically greater if you are choosing a school that is near an electrical utility.
Storage space is also a key factor. Shipping containers are normally designed to accommodate about 500 US gallons of fluids. If your school is going to use containers to house the most fluids possible, then you must make sure that there is adequate room to properly accommodate the additional volumes of fluids. This means that there must be enough drywall between the interior and exterior walls to ensure adequate space. Further, you must make certain that there is adequate ventilation so that school students do not become ill from excess humidity.
When it comes to the cost of using shipping containers to build your school, you must factor in the cost of renting the containers from a company like Shipwire. As noted above, containers are not cheap, and this is one of the primary reasons why companies choose to rent them rather than purchasing them on the traditional construction project. Furthermore, if your school has a budget for this project, then you may want to think twice about purchasing the containers. Although this option does require more money upfront, you can save money in the long run by paying less for heating, electricity, maintenance and repairs in the future.
In short, shipping container schools are an excellent choice for many different reasons. However, before hiring a company to supply your classrooms with portable classrooms, you should take a long hard look at your budget and the size of your class. Plus, you should be sure that you're getting a good deal on shipping containers and all of the other materials you'll need to build your classroom space. Educators have found that by using these containers, they were able to decrease costs and increase classroom space while staying within their budgets.
