Mobile Modular Created Temporary Education Spaces In a Tight Timeline for the Minot School District After Devastating Flooding


After the flooding of the Souris River in Minot, North Dakota in June of 2011, the school district was concerned about how and where to begin the upcoming school year. The devastating flood that struck much of North Dakota displaced roughly 776 students when the Souris River spilled over protective levies and flooded schools, businesses, and thousands of homes.

The District, working cooperatively with FEMA, turned to Kraus Anderson Construction Company (KA) of Minneapolis, Minnesota to assist with flood recovery efforts, both temporary and long-term. KA selected Mobile Modular to provide temporary modular classroom buildings. KA acted as the construction manager and was responsible for the overall project management, including site preparation and utility work while our team delivered, installed, and finished the modular classroom buildings.

The Solution

With an aggressive timeline for full project completion, KA and Mobile Modular responded to provide over 65,000 square feet of educational space, a total of 64 modular classrooms with restroom facilities, at three different sites. The buildings serve elementary school, middle school, adult learning, and Head Start students. The delivery and installation of the modular classroom complexes took place continuously throughout the month of August. By September 6, 2011, the district was once again able to welcome their students, only one week later than their normal start date.

Why Choose Mobile Modular

“I wanted to formally acknowledge the excellent attention that was given to our emergency response project this past summer in Minot, ND. With a shortened construction season, due to the flooding and the aggressive construction schedule to get the students back to school without any delays, Mobile Modular went out of their way to make this possible . . . We have heard nothing but compliments on the finished product from users, as well as curious people who stopped by to see what a modular classroom looks like.” – Jason Peterson, Project Manager, Kraus-Anderson Construction Company.

By utilizing modular construction and leveraging the experience of the Mobile Modular project team, our client was able to maintain their leadership position and continue their mission to be a global frontrunner in their industry.
