Modular Classrooms & School Buildings

High Performance School Building Projects Use Alaska Structures

With an annual estimated cost of $99 billion dollars to maintain current school infrastructure in the United States, many states are looking to reduce maintenance budgets and requiring new school building projects to be designed and built to a high-performance or green-building standard. A big shift now underway, is on new building technologies that focus on natural resource conservation, energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality, and providing a healthy and safe learning environment.

Alaska Structures® designs and engineers the safest and most technologically advanced tensioned membrane structures available. Our school buildings and modular classrooms meet local and international building codes to ensure safety, as well as be compliant with ADA standards. The open span nature of our engineered fabric structures allows for school building designs up to 150’ wide and customizable to any length. Without the need for support columns, every square foot of interior space can be utilized. Translucent fabric can be used for natural lighting, creating a bright interior conducive to learning while decreasing energy usage. Energy efficient insulation and HVAC systems can be installed to maintain a comfortable learning environment.

Alaska Structures' tension fabric buildings can be used for temporary classrooms, modular classrooms, or permanent school buildings on campuses. Once setup, our engineered building systems are virtually maintenance free, drastically reducing the maintenance costs associated with maintaining typical education buildings. We use lean manufacturing methods to reduce waste during production, and the ability to relocate and easily expand school buildings designed and manufactured by Alaska Structures makes them more green than typical building constructions of wood, brick and mortar, or steel.

Leverage our 40+ years of experience working with school building architects, engineering firms, and school district leaders to develop high-performance school building designs that meet the state-wide, regional, district and site-specific requirements for your next school building or modular classroom project.
