How We Installed Executive-Worthy Office Space Inside This Warehouse

The DAK Equipment & Engineering warehouse consultants have worked with hundreds of customers over the years, helping them find solutions to all of their warehousing challenges. One of the challenges many of our clients have faced is finding space for their executive and administrative teams in the middle of a busy warehouse operation. They want their managers and executives close to the action, but those same people need a little peace and quiet to get their work done, too. We’ve found that modular offices are an ideal solution; they move your teams into the warehouse instead of sequestering them in an off-site trailer and feel like their own building with comfortable amenities and plenty of peace and quiet. We’ve installed many prefab office in warehouses across the country, and one of our most recent projects took us to the East Chicago warehouse of ICO Polymers.

The Challenge

ICO Polymer was facing a number of challenges within their warehouse. First, their management and office teams were currently working in trailers outside of the warehouse and had been for years. While that had worked for a while, the team knew they could be more effective if they were closer to the action happening in the warehouse. However, they needed something nicer and quieter than simply moving their desks into a corner of the warehouse floor. In fact, they wanted a conference room and offices that would be worthy of any executive meeting. With a large office team and the desire for a great conference room, they’d need to maximize their use of space. They turned to the warehouse consultants at DAK Equipment & Engineering to help them find a solution, and we did.

The Solution

The answer to ICO Polymers situation was a modular office, but not just any old modular office. We partnered with a reputable prefab office manufacturer to create a custom modular building that could be assembled right in the warehouse. In the end, we designed and helped install an incredible 6,000 square feet of new office space with two-story modular buildings that connected together right in the warehouse. When we were finished, ICO Polymers had all the office space they needed along with an incredible conference room they couldn’t wait to show off. We even hooked up a heating and air conditioning system so they could regulate the temperature of the space and stay comfortable all year long. While they didn’t need it, we could have also included restroom facilities or even a fully-functioning kitchen space.

Now the warehouse has their managerial team on-hand to help with any issues and a conference room to host visitors. It was everything they needed, all in a perfectly-sized package at a fair price.
