Responsive Storage and Logistics for A School Renovation
Solutions for A Growing Private School@Model.Title.HeadingType>
For one private school serving children from preschool to eighth grade, a progressive curriculum integrated with arts and academics led to a fast growing student body. As this school outgrew its space in a residential community, it began renting extra space from a nearby church. For the past six years, grade-level classes have met in the church, with the preschool several streets away on the school's original grounds. Recently, when two apartment buildings located next to the preschool campus were listed for sale, the school purchased both to bring the entire student body back to one location.
The Challenge: A Tight Budget and Schedule
As the renovations progressed, it became clear that the school might be scrambling to move in before the new school year was scheduled to begin. This private school needed an affordable place to store furniture and classroom supplies for June, July and August, as well as an easy way to move in as soon as the new school building renovations were complete.
The PODS Solution: Temporary Storage Units
Finally, a little more than a week before school was to start, construction on the new buildings was nearing completion. With only a few days' notice, the school administration found out they would be able to move in. They contacted the local PODS manager and added the private school to the schedule with short notice to make sure they could start classes on time.
The Results: School Is in Session
With the newly renovated campus and the move complete, the grade school students are now located next to the preschool. Parents, teachers, and administrators no longer have to travel back and forth between the two campuses. Furthermore, older students are enjoying their newly renovated space, with close proximity to the open field and park across the street and plenty of opportunities for outdoor learning.
