Mobile Modular Creates Temporary Classroom and Office Space for Quickly-Expanding School


Detroit Leadership Academy is a pre-k through 12 program that has grown tremendously over the years, resulting in the need for additional classroom space, which Mobile Modular provided in three phases.

The Process

In the first and second phases, our team added a 4 and 6 classroom building with restrooms, respectively, to serve the elementary and preschool students. For Phase III, the new addition housed both administration space and 9 classrooms with restrooms, giving the Academy much-needed room for middle school expansion.

Beyond the Basics

Mobile Modular utilized its Plus Add-On Services to furnish the Phase III building. We provided each classroom with furniture that fit the function and age group of the students, and installed partition walls in one of the classrooms to convert the space to an administrative office. We also installed aluminum, code-compliant ADA deck, steps, and ramps so that the occupants could safely enter and exit the building. With the completion of these projects, the students are now comfortably separated by age group and the staff has dedicated office space in each building.

Mobile Modular’s Plus Add-on Services can be customized to fit your needs. Due to enrollment growth, The Detroit Leadership Academy needed an additional modular classroom building and with it they had Mobile Modular provide a turnkey solution that included furniture as well as ADA compliant aluminum deck, steps, and ramps. The furniture finishes were specifically chosen for the new 10 classroom building as well as options for a previous Mobile Modular building of 4 classrooms. Our turnkey Plus Add-On Services includes delivery and project management from concept to completion. The DLA chose students desks and chairs, teacher’s desks with lockable storage, customized furniture for their computer lab and art workshop as well as furniture for the principal’s office, staff lounge and workroom.

What was provided?

  • 104 standard double student desks with 208 chairs
  • 10 sets of teacher’s desk and chairs (and lockable cabinets)
  • 14 computer lab tables and 28 chairs
  • 9 art tables for 26 kids
  • 2 sets of stairs and 1 ADA compliant ramp
