The athletic department at Yale University in West Haven, CT was ready to begin the repair and renovation of their existing facilities utilized by the football and track programs. During the renovation, the department wanted to keep their athletic programs on campus, and needed space to continue operations which led them to acquire temporary facilities. VESTA Modular was selected to provide 7 custom units for the campus ranging from locker rooms to exercise areas to massage therapy. With 29 floors and a total of 18,368SF, VESTA provided the custom modular buildings on campus at Yale University for a 2-year lease within the time frame provided.
VESTA worked with the athletic department heads and was willing to build 7 new units of various sizes to their specifications. The VESTA Modular team worked with Consigli Construction onsite during the installation process. VESTA obtained engineered foundation drawings due to the local town inspector requiring low grade footings. Upon Consigli’s completion of foundation installation using the foundation drawings provided by VESTA, we began the install of the 7 custom units on Yale’s campus. After the building installation was finished, decks and ramps were added for accessibility. The modular building solution was essential for the Yale University Athletic Department and allowed the student athletes to continue as normal during the renovations.

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.
