Mobile Modular Delivered a Full Modular High School to Replace School Destroyed by Flooding

The Challenge

In June of 2016, a disastrous flood hit Kanawha County in West Virginia. The town of Elkview and the surrounding areas experienced unprecedented flooding. Massive rains brought over 10 inches of rain in a 24-hour period, causing the flooding. The government disbursed federal funds to rebuild and assist the victims during this disaster. This included the Herbert Hoover High School which was destroyed by the flooding of the nearby Elk River.

The Solution

In 2017, Modular Mobile constructed an entire campus, consisting of 11 modular buildings, connected by elevated, covered, and lighted walkways. Hoover students received their own temporary school while the permanent replacement was constructed. Modular Mobile based the campus design on standard building elements, grouped in clusters based on educational programming components.

Why Choose Mobile Modular

Mobile Modular was the only method considered for this project because of the desired completion schedule. Foundation construction and factory production of the modules were coordinated and sequenced to streamline the installation process. In addition, to minimize overall project costs, standardized module layouts were utilized and standard specifications for K-12 educational projects were incorporated. This includes Hardiepanel exterior siding, EPDM rubber roofing, wall-hung HVAC units, VCT flooring, VCG/FRP interior walls, suspended ceilings, and a full technology package.
