Modular Fire Station

In order to accommodate the massive population growth occurring on the east side of the City of Gainesville known as Butler Plaza, the Gainesville Fire Department had to build a brand new Fire Station.

Gainesville Fire Rescue found Whatley Law through one of his existing customers, Alachua County School Board. GFR was in need of a permanent fire station that would blend in with the architectural review requirements of Butler Plaza.

VESTA designed the building to fit the needs of the fire station, the community, and Butler Plaza Architectural Review Committee. The building was fully operational on September 5, 2017.

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.
