One Great Modular Office, Many Great Uses

Many of our clients use the modular offices that we install as an office space for their management and administrative teams. Others use them for a breakroom. Still others use our Chicago modular offices as an inspection site for products. One company that we worked with, though, decided to use the modular office structure we installed in their warehouse for all three. Here is how they did it:

  • The company started working with our project managers and told them that they needed a modular office that could be used as an office, a break room, and as a place to inspect products prior to shipment.
  • Our team took their wishlist along with the dimensions of their space and made a plan that would accommodate all three needs.
  • One the company approved the plan, the DAK Equipment team installed the new modular office on site.

Today, the company has a gorgeous structure inside of their warehouse that’s made to meet all of their needs. Each area is separate while the inspection area has open sides to facilitate movement and communication with the warehouse floor. The structure is attractive, well-lit, and a perfect addition to their warehouse needs.

If you need to find solutions to your space needs, give the DAK Equipment & Engineering team a call. We’ll work with you to design one of our Chicago modular offices for your space or find the other solutions that you need.

The Benefits of Having a Quiet Modular Office on a Busy Warehouse Floor

Some warehouse managers in Chicago don’t think they need to invest in modular offices for their warehouse. They may think they simply roping off a separate area or tucking a desk into a corner is good enough. While that may be the most affordable solution, it’s certainly not the best one for your team. Here are some of the benefits of giving your crew a separate space in modular offices:

  • It gives them an actual break. Your crew works hard, and being able to step away from everything and relax in a quiet, calm space during their breaks and lunches gives them an opportunity to refresh and relax. They will return to the floor more motivated and eager to finish out the day after a mental break.
  • For management teams, it gives them a quiet place to finish paperwork, evaluations, and all the other things that come with the job. Besides helping them focus on the administrative side of their job, it also protects the confidentiality of some of the items they may be working on.
  • A modular office could be an issue of safety. Depending on your warehouse set up, allowing employees to eat their lunch or take their break in an area adjacent to the warehouse floor could put them in danger. Falling items, wayward forklifts, and the products in your warehouse could pose a risk. Giving them a safe place away from it all could protect them from injuries and accidents (and protect you from litigation).

3 ways to Use Our Chicago Modular Offices to Build a Stronger Team

There are so many great uses for our Chicago modular offices in your warehouse! We’ve installed these modular offices for many businesses in the Chicago area, and one thing we see over and over is how this small addition to the workplace can make a huge difference in employee morale when it’s used properly. Here are three ways we’ve seen our Chicago modular offices used in ways that help build stronger teams:

  1. As a breakroom. Your modular office by still be on the warehouse floor, but it’s like a whole other world when you walk through the doors. A modular office offers a great place for employees to get away from work to take their breaks, rest, and refresh before getting back to work.
  2. As an office for admin staff. No one likes to have their desk out in the middle of everyone. Giving your warehouse admin staff their own space can help increase their morale as well as their productivity.
  3. As a meeting room. Instead of moving meetings away from your warehouse, have them right there! Regular meetings are a great way to build your team’s relationship with each as well as address issues and concerns.

Installing one of our modular offices in your Chicago warehouse can be a great thing for your entire team. Think of all the ways you can put it to use! The benefits far outweigh the cost of the unit, and you’ll be thrilled with how it gives a space for your employees to use and enjoy at an affordable price.
