DuBois Integrity Academy
For years work was being done to open a new charter school in Clayton County, Georgia. When the charter was finally approved in September and then zoning needed for the new facilities approved in November, the DuBois Integrity Academy in Riverdale, Georgia was looking to have their doors open by the next school year. To build a facility that would accommodate all of their projected students in this time frame, they needed a solution that would both meet their budget and timeline, as well as projected growth. The overall project design then went through multiple iterations, with a budget that was both driven by the anticipated student count and limited due to a site that required significant grading work to become suitable for use as an educational facility.
The DuBois Integrity Academy ultimately chose to utilize modular construction through VESTA Modular to complete the school on the aggressive timeline. The innovative Phase One design of the DuBois Integrity Academy consisted of a 25,000 SF permanently installed building that housed approximately 400 students. To accommodate future growth, the building was engineered to have the ability to add a modular second floor addition to help minimize the initial construction cost.
The Phase One building was constructed with two wings and a site-built common area that is utilized as a cafeteria and assembly space. This phase contained 17 classrooms and an administration area with offices, a conference room, and an open reception area as well as a nurse’s station, common area with a warming kitchen, restrooms and a teacher’s workroom. The exterior of the building consists of brick wainscot with Hardie plank siding and an exterior lightning protection system.
In just one year, enrollment continued to grow, and the planned Phase Two build-out took place in 2016. Our team added a second floor for grades three to five, creating an additional 12,300 SF with 11 classrooms, stairwells and elevator to the existing structure.

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.
