St. Cloud VA Medical Center

St. Cloud VA Medical Center provides health care services to Veterans in central, west central and northern Minnesota. They were looking to expand their Primary Care Service line and needed additional building space.  They required a turnkey solution and had a stringent 120-day construction timeline. With specific needs that included; 16 additional Exam Rooms, a Nurse’s Station, Reception Area, IT & Mechanical Rooms, Medical Storage Rooms and Storage/Supply rooms, modular buildings were a viable solution. The St. Cloud VA Hospital Historic District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 21, 2012, because of its significance to the history and evolution of American medicine and Veterans care, its representation of World War I-era federal architecture, and its role in providing quality health care to World War I Veterans after the war.  Due to being on the National Register, the project required the space be leased on a 1 to 5-year basis. Additionally, the project required it be 100% set aside for a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). With all factors carefully considered, the bid was secured to proceed with the project.

As a Certified SDVOSB, Versacon, Inc. was able to bid on the project and chose to work exclusively with our team, who provided the finished modular building. With experience on past projects with St. Cloud VA Medical Center, Versacon acted as the general contractor and was able to meet the required project specifications.  Working cohesively, VESTA and Versacon provided a new, customized, Primary Care & Optometry Center that included 7 modules, energy efficient HVAC units and ADA Accessibility.  This stand-alone modular building has an appealing exterior that includes maintenance free metal siding. VESTA provides complete turnkey solutions and quality materials that provide speed, savings, and sustainability. Modular construction proved to be an effective solution because not only did it minimize operational disruption of its current facility, it also allowed site work to progress concurrently with the fabrication of the modular unit, thereby reducing the overall project schedule.

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.
