Get Your Warehouse Ready for Modular Offices

If you’ve already worked with a DAK Equipment & Engineering team member to order your modular office for your warehouse, you are probably eager to get your modular office in place so you can start using it as soon as possible. While our modular offices typically arrive quickly and are set up in just a few hours or over a weekend (depending on the size and complexity of the installation job), there are some things you can do to help make the installation process even easier:

  • Move items out of the way. Make sure you measure out the space for your modular office and ensure that the area is free of products and equipment, as well as the area around where the office will sit as well. This will give our installation team plenty of space to work. If we don’t have to wait for items to be moved, we can get your modular office set up much sooner.
  • Clean the area. Your modular office won’t be moving once it’s been installed (until you decide to disassemble it, anyway!) so now if your chance to clean the area it will be in. We recommend cleaning the floors along with any nearby walls or areas that may be difficult to access once the modular office is in place.
  • Clear a path. Modular offices require some larger pieces and we’ll need to bring those into the area. It’s helpful to have a clear path that’s big enough for use to move in the necessary product and equipment to assemble your modular office.

Your DAK Equipment & Engineering representative can go over any other items we might need you to do in order to prepare for your new modular office. Once those your done, you can just sit back and wait for your office to arrive!

The Cost Efficiency of Modular Offices vs. Permanent Construction

We’ve talked a lot about the usefulness of modular offices in a warehouse setting, but one of the things that attracts warehouse managers and business owners alike to this versatile space solution is the low cost. Modular offices can be tailored to the needs of your space, whether you want to use them as a clean room, a break room, an office or a conference room (or a combination of all of the above!). But when it comes to modular offices, just exactly how much can you expect to save when compared to the cost of permanent construction?

It will depend on factors such as:

  • The size of the space that you need
  • Whether you have the space for permanent construction already
  • The type of construction and features you want to use
  • The sort of permits that are required in your area

Even with conservative construction estimates, though, you’ll save around 50% when you use modular offices instead of permanent construction, and most businesses save 70% or more. That’s a huge saving that can go right to your bottom line while still giving you the space that you need.

If you are interested in saving 70% or more on creating the space that your business needs to function, modular offices could be the right answer. Talk to a DAK Equipment & Engineering team member today to learn more about the modular offices we can offer you and how you can customize one to meet the needs of your business. You’ll love what this cost efficient and versatile solution can do for you!

Tips on Making Your Modular Offices More Welcoming

Many warehouses utilize modular offices as space for administrative and management teams, but few warehouses spend time fixing up their modular offices to become a welcoming, warm atmosphere. Most modular offices, especially the ones that we sell, look great inside and are ready to be set up with all of your office gear as soon as they are installed. But you don’t have to stop there! Here are some other ideas for improving your modular office:

  • Bring the outside in. Bringing plants into your office space can create a more welcoming environment. You’ll love seeing something green growing near you, and some studies show that the presence of plants can be soothing. Try easy to care for plants like a cactus or fern.
  • Put some color on the walls. Warmer colors like red and yellow can boost worker productivity while cool blues and grays can be more soothing. If paint is out of the question, try fabric panels, curtains, or even decorative objects in your preferred tones.
  • Set up informal gathering spaces. No one wants to hang out in a meeting room. If you have the space, though, set up a small informal gathering area with comfy chairs, a sofa, and a soft glowing lamp. Your team will enjoy gathering there and it can be a great place for one-on-ones or to get take a five minute break.

Put these ideas into action and see how they transform your modular offices. Looking for other great ideas? Talk to a DAK Equipment & Engineering team member today. We’ll help you find the right solutions for your modular offices!
