Mobile Teaching Lab

VESTA Modular was awarded a contract with the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) to design, engineer, solicit manufacturing proposals, and production and site installation of a steel framed modular structure to be used as a mobile training center located at one of Tennessee’s State Universities.

In the design phase VESTA worked with TBR to move from concept design to construction documents. During this phase of work, we locked in the final floor plan layouts, required equipment specifications, materials specifications, MEP requirements, constructibility requirements, and relevant information to send to the factories for pricing out the construction phase work.

Upon completion of the design and engineering documents, VESTA created bid packages to send to the prequalified manufacturers for completion of the modular units in the factory, delivery to the job site, and scope of installation requirements for the completion of the project.

The project included the fabrication of multiple transportable modular units which were connected on site with minimal site adaptation work. The units are capable of supporting classroom space, welding lab space and self-contained utilities to include restroom facilities and electrical services for training equipment. The units are capable of using both on-site electrical services as well as generator supplied services. They also feature self-contained waste and water systems. Units included entrances with canopies, ramps and steps which were transported with the units.

All materials used in both the structure and finishes consisted of durable hard surface materials capable of industrial use without the need for any external structural support. Once installed, the final modular building is up to all the state of Tennessee building codes and seismic requirements.

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.
