Educational Modular Buildings:
Pope has been identified as a premier provider of modular educational buildings and modular classroom since 1986. Many of the modular classrooms that were acquired as relocatable modular buildings, temporary classrooms, portable classrooms or portables are still in service today and in excellent condition.
The current trend is to acquire permanent educational space through the use of permanent modular building construction. Green or sustainable construction methods are an integral part of building using modular building technologies. Common sense applications of sustainable building methods are regularly employed by Pope Industries as a method of delivering a clean interior living environment that is easy to maintain and by its design prolongs the life cycle of the buildings we build.
Relocatable modular classrooms and buildings:
