Saint Xavier University
VESTA was contacted by Saint Xavier University in Chicago, IL to create a permanent building for their 3-D Art Studio. Taking the history of the campus into account, we installed an exterior facade to complement the existing university building including split face CMU base, smooth brick finish, fiber cement board panels and metal coping.
This building also includes specialized art equipment, fume hood, kiln, and dust collection system. With a vestibule entry, card reader access for security, lights controlled by occupancy sensors, large aluminum mill storefront windows to provide natural light with gray tinting for privacy, this building maintains the campus aesthetics while incorporating the needs of the client with functional and security features. The modular building was installed on a narrow residential Chicago lot just a few feet from an occupied single-family home. The modular project progressed from foundation to a complete building in just a few weeks, minimizing disruption to the neighborhood

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.
