Barnstable-West Barnstable Elementary is one of several elementary schools Barnstable Public Schools is working to expand, in order to provide better learning spaces for their students and teachers.
This new custom permanent modular classroom building is 4,990 square feet, featuring cutting edge space for interactive art, music, and library classes.
Prior to the construction of this building, the art teacher pushed a cart from classroom to classroom to teach, while the music class was held in a small room lacking optimal daylight and space. The library had been moved around in the existing building several times, with its most recent location on the elementary school’s stage. As you can imagine, the library was lacking space and facing significant disruption from regular activities in the gymnasium, while the stage could not be used for plays, programs or other purposeful events.

Now, art is taught in a brand new spacious classroom that is actually designed for art activities with a large amount of workspace for the students, ample storage, and lots of sunlight. Similarly, the new music classroom provides a comfortable environment that promotes active learning. The library finally has a permanent location with plenty of room for books and educational activities. It also features an impressive amount of natural light improving the atmosphere for learning.
This was a highly customized turn-key permanent modular classroom construction project that included:
Significant site excavation
Demolition of an existing building
New modular classroom manufacturing
Building installation with a crane
Metal canopies and concrete walk connecting to the existing school building
Specialty windows, interior and exterior finishes, and hardware throughout
Site supervision and project management
