Old Redford Elementary School

The current school was housed in an older building which was no longer appropriate as an education facility. The school board recognized the need for a new building, however they had a very short time frame. They required a creative cost effective solution without sacrificing quality. The school board looked to VESTA Modular to design a building both interior and exterior that would embody the mission of the school: “ to successfully educate all students providing them with stimulation and challenging experiences in a clean, safe and healthy environment.”

The fast-track construction of this school was accomplished by building two, two story classroom wings centered around a two story glass atrium. The design also incorporated using the pre-existing cafeteria and gymnasium for the new building to maximize cost savings. The four modular wings feature spacious classrooms and recessed lockers. Each wing has a unique color scheme which provide not only an exciting learning environment but also assist in defining grade levels.

The two story glass atrium features extensive ceramic tile work with inlaid graphic tiles, a fireplace and a grand piano. The building is sustainable, designed with features such as energy- efficient HVAC.

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.
