Nature Walk Montessori School | Daycare

Nature Walk Montessori School in Round Lake, IL was looking to open their doors for the upcoming school year. It was important to the owner that the structure would fit into the surrounding nature of the property as well as stay within their budget. Also, to protect their investment, the school needed to be sure that the production time was predictable as any delays would have an impact on the school’s enrollment if they were not able to open according to the neighboring public school calendars.

Nature Walk Montessori School ultimately chose modular to meet the challenges they faced in opening the school’s doors. By utilizing modular, it made it possible for the owners to act as general contractors and have more control over the entire project. They were involved in the special design that accommodates the needs of the students and the construction details were left to our team.

VESTA provided 4,200 square feet of permanent building space for the school that consists of three large classrooms, a warming kitchen, entry area, and office. The building includes child sized sinks and low windows that allow the children to view the surrounding nature and feel at home in their classroom. Nature Walk found that by using modular construction, they were able to experience tax benefits and other costs savings.

“The lower cost of modular made our project more affordable and within our reach.” Vicki Promenzio, Head of School.

Modular construction allowed the school to avoid delays and meet their timeline to open the business in conjunction with the surrounding public school calendars.

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.
