The Alternatie Education Program at Spring Lake HS in Michigan had been housed in an outdated 25 year old modular building. The district wanted to upgrade the facility that would provide students with the same quality learning environment offered by their recently updated high school facility. The district needed a facility with aesthetics that would blend in with the picturesque surroundings and utilization of the existing property was of utmost importance.
WM partnered with Innovative Modular Solutions to construct a four classroom building with offices and restrooms, set atop a permanent block foundation with crawl space. Whitley's proprietary High-Profile Roof System shipped installed from the factory lying flat. After installation, the hinged roof system was raised to create a 4/12 pitch and a pleasing aesthetic. The modular facility upgrade has had a positive impact on attitudes and performance of the students and is viewed by the community as "money well spent."
The entire project was completed in just 62 days and under its projected budget. Sustainable features include gas wall-mounted HVAC units with CRVs and CO2 sensors to insure indoor air quality and plentiful fresh air. The buidlign also features high recycled content (and recyclable) carpet tiles, low energy electronic ballast lighting fixtures with T-8 bulbs, room occupancy sensors, and a hot water recirculation system.
