Construction in the Fast Lane.

Web Abstract: 
Describes Florida's use of modular construction, instead of portables, to create classroom space quickly. The trend away from portables was initiated by 1997 state legislation for classroom accessibility, wind resistance, and technology connectivity. Later legislation requiring smaller class sizes, the elimination of older portables, and the overall reduction of portables by half combined to necessitate a method of quick building. The costs, designs, furnishings, and popularity of the modular facilities are detailed.
