A new and used modular building supplier has low-cost private mobile shelter buildings ready for immediate delivery to Baton Rouge to help start the recovery process for those who have been displaced by the overwhelming flooding.
Many of HSTL Modular buildings have been used as schools and administrative facilities and are air conditioned and have bathrooms, according to digitaljournal. They are suitable as community disaster recovery centers, classrooms, health clinics and short-term shelters, and the smaller units can be delivered, installed and move-in ready in a day or two. The larger buildings may require up to a week to assemble.
The largest single building immediately available is 8,400 sq ft comprised of ten sections each 12 ft X 70 ft when assembled, creating over 20 connected spaces of varying sizes. This building was built in 2006 by Design Space of Georgia for the Federal Emergency Management Agency to use as a school for children who moved north from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
The three sections of the complex are the staff section, the meeting center and the administrative center, replete with ADA bathrooms for men and women, conference rooms, an IT room, multiple offices and meeting rooms.
