Puyallup School District Kessler Center— Summit Building

When the superintendent of the Puyallup School District met the Pacific Mobile team at a WASBO conference, he saw what custom modular construction could do, and he was intrigued. So, when the school district needed to relocate their alternative learning program, they took it as an opportunity to entertain their curiosity with a permanent custom modular building.   A 2,880-square-foot building was placed. The exterior of the building features a shed roof, high-end metal siding, covered entry with a half wall for a restricted view, customized fiberglass windows, and external HVAC screening. The interior of the building features an open hallway displaying an architecturally and acoustically sound cloud T-grid ceiling. There’s also a two-hour separation fire barrier providing protected compartments where students and staff can safely exit the building in the event of a fire.   After the completion of their first custom modular building, the Puyallup School District was very pleased. Now, when future expansion needs arise, they know they can turn to modular construction to get the job done.

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.
