This paper describes a study that would enable modular builders to improve the energy performance of their classrooms without increasing their first cost. The Modern Building Systems' classroom building conforms to the stringent Oregon and Washington energy codes, and, at $18 per square foot, it is at the low end of the cost range for modular classrooms. The study investigated daylighting, cross-ventilation, solar preheat of ventilation air, and thermal storage as ways to reduce energy use.
