Kids at the Waldorf School of Orange County in Costa Mesa, California are going to green classrooms by using recycled shipping containers.
Using what they call the "[e]co classroom architecture," the Waldorf School has used primarily corrugated steel containers to build classrooms, restrooms, offices, a science lab, art space, student lounge and auditorium. The project, which started in February this year, had a budget of 2 million USD and used 10,000 sq.ft of space and 32 shipping containers. These containers were pre-constructed off-site including interior framing and electrical components, and then transported and set up in the school.
These school facilities are green, durable and will be used by kids from pre-kindergarten to grade 12.
