Rapid deployment of temporary buildings during a time of disaster recovery is crucial in the event of any type of catastrophe. Whether it is a quick response to a natural disaster such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and wildfires or it is providing relocatable swing spaces for government agencies and healthcare facilities (for fighting against the Coronavirus aka Covid-19), modular construction offers us an essential building solution.
Since it’s nearly impossible to predict the timing of such large-scale disasters, a DRaaS (Disaster Recovery as a Service) discussion should be your first step. VESTA’s disaster response protocols can accommodate your institutional or company-wide disaster recovery planning strategies. Business owners’, community leaders’, and government officials’ plans should include the use of relocatable buildings and infrastructure during their risk assessment.
One of the most significant features of temporary trailers and modules is their portability. Portable shelter solutions are required in order to provide large-scale, modular housing in the safest possible locations for victims.
This mobility is also important in order to keep emergency response teams close to the action to ensure better response times on the frontlines. Additionally, relocatable modular buildings ensure that as environments and situations change, so can the location of your emergency services buildings.
The installation process of modular buildings is incredibly fast and efficient. Since VESTA owns thousands of prefabricated modular units across the United States that are already available for use, most of the difficult construction has already been completed.
Additionally, modular construction allows for quick changes to floor plans and layouts. Your mobile building is customizable to enhance whichever services are required for housing or office work and are built to code for all municipalities. In a disaster response situation, modular construction ensures that your community receives prompt relief.
Modular buildings can come in a variety of sizes to match your needs. This flexibility in size allows for the installation of modular offices, meetings rooms, and housing where space allows. Additionally, the efficient module size adds to the ease with which your modular building can be transported. We have utilized railways, cargo ships, and commercial freight to deliver modular buildings to some of the most remote areas in the country and internationally.
During a disaster, it is not always evident or possible to predetermine where an emergency response building or shelter will be placed. Sites experiencing storms may prove difficult to construct permanent buildings for foundation reasons. Experienced construction crews can build up the foundations for modular offices and shelter fairly easily by bringing in outside building materials. Ideal locations can also be determined closer to the installation date to best suit the needs of any particular environmental requirements.
There are a myriad of reasons that we find modular buildings to be cost effective. They can be leased, allowing companies the ability to utilize them for as long as they need.
The modular construction process allows for the building of prefabricated modules in an indoor environment. Workers and the structure avoid the challenges of weather and temperature. Building materials and tools are all nearby and the warehouse is engineered to provide modular building technicians an efficient workspace. The efficiency of time and materials results in a lower and more predictable price.
Long-term permanent modular buildings remain cost effective vs their traditional building competitors. Even a more favorable depreciation schedule might lend its hand to additional tax savings.
Part of recovering after a disaster is the process of rebuilding your infrastructure. Replacing homes, offices, and commercial buildings can be expensive and take a lot of time. Permanent modular building solutions might be the wisest recovery plan moving forward for a number of industries.

Our experienced modular building contractors would be happy to deliver you a modular building that represents your brand with aesthetic styling, high-quality materials and high-end features.
When Hurricane Florence hit North Carolina, we partnered with Poettker Construction to create highly specialized, custom government swing spaces. One of the designated modular buildings was a high security building. With swift action, we were able to complete this project quickly for the disaster response teams and people of North Carolina.
