Classroom Portables after Joplin, Missouri Tornado

Shortly after the Joplin Tornado leveled parts of Joplin, SMM stepped up to help the community out.  SMM was contracted to Build and install New Custom Built:

  • (13) 24’ x 42’ Single Classroom Buildings
  • (1) Administration Building
  • (1) 24’ x 56’ Art Classroom

SMM was the only Modular Company who was able to provide these buildings within the required 30-day timeframe.  SMM’s scope included Aluminum Decks, Steps, Handicap Ramps, Canopies and Utility connections.  All work was performed in less than a month and ready for School to begin on time.

Building – Project Features include:

  • Custom Designed Classroom Building
  • HVACs
  • Sustainable, energy efficient materials used throughout
  • Decks, Steps, Ramps and Canopies
  • All Utility Hookups

Project Challenges

– 30 day schedule to complete the project prior to School Starting
– (15) Buildings to be Built, Delivered and Installed on the same site in close proximity to one another.
– Difficult logistical conditions in Joplin after the Tornado


"When we got the walk through, I honestly teared up and started crying on the day we got to see, because... We were so thrilled to have such nice facilities to come back to."
