Project Capsule: American Opportunity Foundation Modular Childcare Facility
The American Opportunity Foundation Modular Childcare Facility is a 7,968 sq. ft. comprised of modules configured in an L-Shape. Designed as a child care facility, ultimately the building has 3 offices, restrooms, a laundry facility, break room, lounge, day care rooms and a lobby area.
The exterior of the portable daycare building is very modern in aesthetic and has an eggshell white stucco and dark gray façade. Pac-Van used 12’x40’s and 12’x60’s approved by State of California, Department of Housing & Community Development with a pier and pad tie down foundation, recessed to ground level. All fixtures, doors, windows, etc. and comply with child care guidelines.
The unit is relocatable and also built to California State Title 21, a state regulation to ensure modular buildings are using the most energy efficient materials. The heating and air conditioning units are all electric with heat pumps.
Cost effective choices included:
- recessed pier and pad foundation
- standard 12’x40’s and 12’x60’s
The HVAC’s are end mount vs. roof mount, therefore eliminating the need for a crane and prevents climbing on the roof, which can cause safety issues and also leaks.
