What Is A SAGE Classroom?
The SAGE classroom project was conceived by faculty and students at Portland State University to explore options for classroom space needs typically filled by the use of portable classrooms. Portable classrooms had long had a negative reputation, and typically were not something teachers, students or parents wanted on their campuses. However, there has been a continual need for additional space. A solution had to be out there, and it came in the form of a better designed classroom: SAGE.
Pacific Mobile joined the team, and committed to being the distributor for the SAGE classroom. Pacific Mobile handles all aspects of the project from initial request through completion on site while working together with Blazer and PSU on elements of the design.
The SAGE classroom features enhanced natural daylighting, improved air quality and increased ceiling height in addition to a more aesthetically pleasing exterior design. Additional features such as ceiling fans to circulate the air, LED light fixtures, cork board wall coverings, exposed ducting and additional windows make the interior space more inviting and functional. The “look” of the SAGE classroom fits in well with existing school campus buildings.
Since it’s inception, the SAGE design has grown from basic single and double classroom modules into options for complexes and additional configurations specific to each individual school’s needs and space limitations.
An ongoing effort to provide the best classroom education environment for our community.
The modular portion of the house was comprised of 6 modules and a variety of modular panels.
