Wanting to avoid the typical School Portable solution the Grand Erie District School Board were looking for a more innovative and permanent solution for their expansion requirements. For the GEDSB 4 new classrooms, totaling more than 4,100 square feet and providing more than 100 students and teachers with a comfortable, safe and healthy environment was a priority.

grand_erie_2Provincial Partitions worked closely with Joe Saldarelli of the GEDSB to provide an aesthetically pleasing and fully functional solution.

The exterior was fitted with non-combustible and moisture resistant fiber cement board. The new fiberboard has stronger durability than conventional steel siding. It will not damage with incidental contact from playground activities, rust, or sustain sharp edges. Aesthetically it gives the structure a more modern and updated look. Additionally, eighteen-inch roof overhangs and eaves troughs help direct precipitation away from windows where moisture can penetrate and cause problems. A redesigned one-piece seamless floor ensures moisture does not find its way between and underneath independent tiles.

Welded structural steel bases combined with light gauge roll formed steel for wall and roof-framing members enhanced the strength and durability of the structure for years to come. Non-combustible and mold resistant materials were used throughout. Mold resistant wall and ceiling panels were used to address the mold issues of portables past.

Flexibility and convenience makes all of Provincial Partitions product offering the ideal space management choice. To request a quotation on how your next building project might benefit by using our unique line of modular space solutions, please feel free to fill out our online RFQ form or contact us directly at
