Alternative Education Building
The Alternative Education Program at Spring Lake High School in Spring Lake, MI, had been housed in 25-year-old modular buildings located in the bus garage parking lot. The district wanted an upgraded facility that would provide the students with an educational environment that was equal to that of the recently updated high school. The building sits in a picturesque setting surrounded by a pond and is within a short walk of the main high school campus. Utilizing the existing property was of utmost importance to the district because they wanted the alternative students to have access to activities at the main campus.
Our team constructed a 4-classroom permanent modular school building with offices and restrooms. The building sits on a on a permanent block foundation with a crawl space and features Whitley Manufacturing’s High-Profile Roof System. The roof was factory installed with a flat profile. Once the building was installed, the hinged roof was lifted to create a 4:12 pitch, giving it an aesthetically pleasing, site built look. Spring Lake’s modular facility upgrade for their alternative education program has had a positive impact on the students and viewed by the community as money well spent.
This modular building project, completed in 62 days, came in under budget. Eco-friendly features include Bard gas wall mounted HVAC units with CRV’s and CO2 sensors to provide fresh air and an improved learning environment. The building also features recyclable carpet tiles, low energy electronic ballast lighting fixtures with T-8 bulbs, room occupancy sensors and a hot water re-circulation system for the restrooms.

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.
