5 Signs It’s Time for a Modular Office

If you’ve been going back and forth about whether or not your warehouse needs a modular office, DAK Equipment & Engineering can help! Here are the top five signs it’s time to call us and place an order for your new prefabricated office space.

 

Your team sits outside to eat lunch…even in cold weather.

It might not be a big deal that your crew likes to eat their lunch outside, but if you see them eating out there even when the temperatures plunge, that’s an issue. It’s a sign that they don’t have anywhere else to eat! A modular office can be configured as a great break and lunch room for your team.

You are constantly looking for secure storage space for files.

There are a lot of warehouse files that require secure storage. Personnel files, customer information, and credit card numbers all need to be locked up. If you are fighting for space for secure file storage on the warehouse floor, it’s time to order a modular office. These spaces can house your secure files all in one convenient location.

Your admin team is wearing soundproof headphones all day.

You rely on your admin team to keep your warehouse functional. If you’ve noticed they are wearing their soundproof headphones all day long, though, they could probably benefit from their own office space. Modular offices give them a clean, comfortable and quiet place to get their work done away from the noise of the warehouse floor.

Your clean room is less than clean.

If you are having a tough time keeping your clean room, well, clean, a modular office can be the solution that you need. We can help you configure your modular office to be a state-of-the-art cleanroom for your warehouse, perfect for assembly and handling of sensitive materials.

Your crew keeps their gear locked in their car trunks.

Your team probably carries some things with them to work every day, whether it’s a lunchbox, a gym bag for after work, or just a purse with their essentials. They need a place to stash their stuff! If they are keeping it in their car, it’s time to get them a locker room. Modular offices can be outfitted with lockers, creating a break room that doubles as a safe storage space for your team!

How to Determine if Modular Offices Are Right for You

DAK Equipment & Engineering offers a number of solutions for warehouses that are searching for ways to maximize their space. From optimizing your warehouse layout to installing mezzanine levels, we have solutions for all budgets and spaces. One solution that we often recommend to our customers is modular offices. These are cost-effective ways to optimize your warehouse space, but they may not be the right choice for everyone. If you are wondering about the use of modular offices in your warehouse, ask yourself these questions to help determine if they are right for your warehouse.

 

Are Modular Offices the Right Solution?

 

Do you need space for separate activities?

Warehouses aren’t exclusively for storage, picking orders, and shipping. There are a number of other processes that need to happen to help a warehouse run smoothly, including returns processing, assembly lines, and the daily paperwork that comes with running a warehouse. Having some of these activities happen in their own area can be a benefit to both worker safety and a higher rate of production, making a modular office the perfect place to house these various activities.

 

Are you running out of storage space?

A modular office is going to take up space on your warehouse floor…unless you use it in conjunction with a mezzanine level. Modular offices can be placed on top of mezzanines, moving assembly lines or administrative staff off of the warehouse floor and into their own space. The area underneath the mezzanine and modular office can be safely used for storage once again.

 

Do you want to avoid the cost of moving your warehouse?

When you are running out of space, your options are often to either move your warehouse or lease additional offsite space for your team, both incredibly expensive options. Modular offices can help you avoid choosing either option, keeping your warehouse and your team in the same location.

The Best Layout for Your Modular Offices

Now that you have a new modular office from DAK Equipment & Engineering, you need to make sure you maximize the full potential of your space. It’s easy to waste office space with unnecessary clutter, poorly thought-out layouts, and a jumble of cords hooking up all of your office equipment. We have some simple tips that can help you take advantage of your new office space and get the most out of it.

 

How to Use Your Modular Office Space

Look Up

This is the same advice that we give our clients when it comes to maximizing space inside their warehouses, too. Many people only think about their usable square footage as the space they have on the ground when in truth there is a lot of space to be used overhead, as well. Utilize the wall space of your modular office by installing shelves to get binders and even equipment such as printers off of the floor. You’ll end up with a more organized office space not to mention less clutter on your floor creating a trip hazard.

Your modular office should be well lit. Not only will this reduce eye strain on staff members working inside the space, but it will make the space seem bigger as well. Good lighting doesn’t have to mean overhead fluorescents, either. In some applications, this might be the ideal solution, but for office workers, desk lighting might be easier on their eyes. Think about how the space will be used and light it accordingly.

 

Control Cables

If there is one thing that can make an otherwise-neat-and-tidy modular office look cluttered, it’s the mess created by cables. Phone cables, computer cables, printer cables…the list goes on and on. Pick up a cable tidying kit at your local hardware or home supply store. This will have everything you need to organize and tie up your cables so they are hidden. Be sure that you label cords and cables, too, in order to make your life easier when it comes time to move or replace something in the future.
