Design and build a two-phase approach that involved building a 4,000 sq. ft.
classroom facility first, then later installing a 3,000 sq. ft. classroom facility directly
adjacent to the first structure.

The structures were designed to match the existing brick buildings adjacent to the
new structures as the buildings were highly visible. Each building included sound-rated windows and metal sound channels inside the exterior walls. To incorporate audio-visual displays featuring manually-operated screens, the facilities were designed so that a portion of each classroom had 10’ ceilings. Additional interior features included painted sheetrock interior walls, painted interior doors and window trim, t-grid suspended ceilings with recessed lights, and heavy-duty chair bumper rails. Exterior finishes featured 16’ high brick façade on the front sides, with a 3’ high brick wainscoting on all other sides.

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.
