Temporary Medical Facility

A large urban hospital system was in the process of implementing an aggressive 10-year master building and renovation plan. To be successful, an interim facility was needed to ensure all medical and administrative programs remained in continuous operation. The facility would house all levels of medical and administrative staff displaced during demolition and reconstruction. A permanent, conventionally constructed building was considered. However, due to a restricted site and a limited budget, this option was not feasible. The construction and placement of the interim facility needed to accommodate the limited site area and traffic patterns, which included emergency vehicles and daily traffic congestion at the inner city medical campus.

The hospital selected VESTA because of their experience and proposed solution, which included a single story, L-shaped modular building that complimented the surrounding environment, maintained the flow of the vehicular and pedestrian traffic, and efficiently utilized the restricted site. Although intended to be a temporary building, the modular facility utilized a permanent foundation, which provided a ground level installation and a strong visual integration with adjacent buildings. A freestanding canopy, landscaping and lighting accents enhanced the exterior aesthetics.

Modular construction was an effective solution because it allowed site work to progress concurrently with the fabrication of the modular units, thereby reducing the project schedule. Additionally, modular construction’s versatility allows for the eventual move of the building to another location. After completion of the modular interim facility, the implementation of the master plan continued without disruption to the daily operations of the medical campus.

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.
