About Southfiled School District
The suburban Detroit community is home to a mature school system with aging buildings spread across a large geographical area. Southfield boasts 140 Fortune 500 companies and an upscale population of 80,000.

Their Need
Southfield faced spending $80 million to modernization of facilities at nine school sites and wanted to complete all construction without disruption to the education process. Existing facilities were at or above capacity. There was no additional space in the district to move students during renovations. They also were strongly against creating a “mobile home park” of classrooms.

The Whitley Solution
Southfield turned to modular technology to provide classrooms, labs, locker and office space with between 10 to 24 classrooms per site. The 100,000 square foot modular construction project was completed over the summer in time for the fall 2004 semester with minimal disruption established patterns. Southfield was impressed to learn the temporary schools would be highly energy efficient and easily removed at the end of the lease.
