Birch Grove Montessori and University Prep

Birch Grove Montessori and University Prep School in Southeast Michigan had 42-acres of rural space and needed a facility to accommodate their needs. It was imperative for the school to be designed and installed for future expansions. VESTA worked with the school board to provide a 10-classroom modular building. During the design phase, VESTA utilized an existing standard modular classroom design while adding custom touches including extra windows, and brick and steel siding for excellent curb appeal. Using the standard design saved the customer and VESTA time and money in the design phase and furthermore in the project process as a whole.

During the delivery and installation phase, VESTA had to ensure the site plan was developed in a way to minimize disruption to the adjacent wetland areas. Furthermore, we had to ensure the building was strategically placed onsite in a way future buildings could be easily constructed without interruption. These are not typical issues for a standard classroom project, making this a unique case. Upon completion of the installation, the bus loop and parking lots were completed, still allowing for future construction. The modular building solution cut down on countless months of construction and allowed the students to be moved in for the 2022 school year.

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.
