Balancing Permanent and Portable Buildings.

Web Abstract: 
Many districts are using portables as relatively permanent installations. Although permanent buildings are more expensive to construct, their operating cost is only $1.30 per square foot, compared to $5 for portables. The overall cost of using portable classrooms to solve long-term problems eventually surpasses costs of building permanent structures. Portables also deteriorate more quickly.
