Greens Portable buildings
Cota explains, “This absorbs way more heat per classroom than inside. You don’t have that huge air conditioning and heating units.”
So Cota says he’s always opening and shutting the window.
“Open a window, here comes a lawn mower. Close the window. Open a window, here comes recess, ” he says laughing.
Ben Cota: “They do complain all the time: ‘It’s too hot in here, it’s too stuffy, it’s too cold.’
Rob: “Do you find yourself agreeing with them?”
Ben: “Yeah, most of the time, I agree with them! Most of the time, I just nod, and say ‘Yeah, I know sit down. We’ve got stuff to do.’”
Students and teachers aren’t the only ones complaining. Margarette Leite remembers joining the chorus of concerned parents and neighbors, when her daughter’s class moved to a Portland portable.

“Neighborhoods consider them an eyesore, generally, and most people are not excited about them, for a number of reasons — so we thought it couldn’t be that hard to make something that works as well as a modular classroom, but looks better and is a much healthier place for our kids to be, ” Leite said.
Leite wasn’t just dreaming. She’s an architect at Portland State University and is married to architecture and engineering professor Sergio Palleroni.
Palleroni says greener and healthier portables have been designed before. But school districts buy portables to put up classrooms cheaply, and the green alternatives can be pricey.
Palleroni expalined, “So that’s why we thought ‘Can we do this, at a price, that we can buy the dang thing, you know?’ If we did, now that would be transformative.”
Palleroni and Leite say they’ve done it.
The sticker price on a typical modern portable is about $60, 000. Palleroni and Leite have designed a “green” portable for $75, 000.
It looks different. Old portables — like Ben Cota’s in Woodburn — have few, small windows. The mockup of the “green portable” has lots of windows.
