Traphagen Elementary School

Mount Vernon City School District was renovating Traphagen Elementary School and was not going to be completed in time for the start of the school year. We worked with the client to utilize an existing 2-classroom building to meet their needs. They did not need restrooms so we converted the existing restrooms into storage closets. The NY State Education Department has a requirement that younger students need to have a covered walkway to go from the main school to the modular classroom. VESTA went with a prefabricated aluminum canopy that allowed the students to stay dry all day. After the modular classrooms were removed at the end of the school year, the district elected to keep the canopy in place so their students will stay dry while they wait for their bus in the bus loop.

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.
