Multiple Permanent Elementary Schools

Ann Arbor Public Schools has experienced a large growth spurt over the past several years. This year was no exception, as they expected a growth of about 600 additional students.

The increase in students has caused the school some concerns as they are currently maxed out at several of their facilities.

Ann Arbor Public Schools is a fast-growing school district with the largest growth currently in their K-5 grades. The district was in need to quickly add space at 4 of their sites for the 2017-2018 school year. With 2 more additional buildings added to a 5th and 6th site for the 2018-2020 school year. The first 4 projects required the installation of a four classroom building with restrooms and canopies to connect the modular buildings to the existing structure. The later 3 projects required the installation of a 6-8 classroom building with offices and restrooms. The exterior of the modular buildings are Hardie lap siding, FRP doors, vinyl windows, 60 mil EPDM roof, and bronze wall hung HVAC units. The interior finishes are mud, tape, and paint with LED lights, 8’-6” drop ceilings, and VCT flooring.

The kids like to refer to the modular buildings as “the upper peninsula” and the ramps as “the Mackinac Bridge”. They find it fun to walk from the “lower peninsula” (their main school) to the ”upper peninsula” (the modulars) throughout the day!

Frequenty Asked Questions

No. Modular buildings, even temporary ones, can be expected to last for decades. Permanent modular buildings may last for generations.

You can choose to purchase or lease modular buildings. At VESTA, we offer two leasing options:

  • Operational lease: With an operational lease, you can essentially rent the building for us as long as you need. When your lease ends, the building will return to our inventory. Operational leases can last for years at a time, although they are typically more affordable if they only last for five years or less.
  • Financed lease: Financed leases allow you to lease a building with the intention of owning. At VESTA, we work with financing partners who are specifically trained to finance leases for modular buildings.

Yes! Modular buildings are easy to customize. Whether you want a specific layout, materials, interior design, exterior design, specialty rooms, furniture, or amenities, we can customize your modular building to fit your needs.

The best way to understand is to remember that all modular construction is prefabricated, but not all prefabricated construction is modular.

Modular construction typically focuses on the assembly of fully closed or nearly closed modules. “3D volumetric” is also a term used for traditional modular construction. Prefab construction refers to anything pre-built for a building project, including pre-built walls, floors, or ceilings.
