Hanford High School

Richland School District was in need of a single-story classroom facility that would accommodate both staff and students, and serve as a longterm solution to the District’s continual increase in student enrollment. A multifaceted permanent modular was designed and constructed, with a total of 12 large classrooms. A faculty workroom, office, student/faculty restrooms, storage room, custodial space and mechanical/electrical rooms were included in the structure to accommodate the District’s space requirements. The School District opted to proceed with modular construction to meet the District’s strict timeline and budget constraints.

Hanford High School was built as the first of three similar buildings for the Richland School District. This repeatability concept is comparable to the common portable classroom, apart from the fact that it is multiple classrooms with an increased standard of quality. The classrooms in the structure were configured in a rectangular fashion and thoughtfully formulated to maximize student learning. Special audio and visual connections and teaching technologies were incorporated into each of the classrooms to help improve the students learning experience and engagement.

Containers come in all shapes and sizes with single and double door options. But did you know that they also come in different grades of quality? By nature, storage containers are subject to harsh conditions and weather, along with wear and tear during transport and handling. The longer the container has been in use, the more its grade is affected. A container grade is primarily based on looks and structure to determine a grade that rates its overall usability, functionality, and quality. Here are the different grades of containers and a quick explanation of what each grade means.
