Upgrade Your Facility in a Weekend

Ten Things to Know About Modular Offices

Now that the economy is finally getting back on track and warehouse and distribution center activity is moving into high gear, many facility improvement projects that were put off until “later” need to get done quickly and with as little disturbance to workflow as possible.

If you’re considering adding anything from more convenient restrooms to an engineering lab, modular construction should be on your radar.

Modular Office Advantages

 

    • Versatility. Modular offices are constructed to meet your needs, no matter the size. These spaces are used in a variety of ways, including:
      • Quality Assurance
      • Shipping and Receiving
      • Foreman’s Office
      • Administrative Offices
      • Break Rooms
      • Cafeterias
    • Simple to Modify or Expand. The offices we provide use a two-piece wall stud, so you can easily make changes to your modular office if your needs change. You can add room dividers to create break rooms, computer or engineering labs, conference rooms, and much more.
    • Speedy Construction. Modular office construction is much faster than traditional construction. You can usually expect modular office construction to be completed in about 25 percent of the time of traditional construction.
    • Major Tax Advantages. Traditional construction takes 39 years to depreciate. A modular office can be depreciated in only seven years, so you save money and taxes.
    • Fast and Easy Wiring. By including pre-engineered electrical system that snaps together quickly and is installed during office assembly, wiring becomes simple. An electrician is only needed to hook up the power source to the breaker box, so you’ll be up and running in no time.
    • Customizable. You can choose doors, windows and wall panel finishes that reflect your style. Door options include commercial grade steel or wood. Panels are available in Khaki, White, and Grey, in addition to painted aluminum, painted steel and fiberglass-reinforced plastic.
    • Goes up in a Weekend. A modular office can often be installed in just a few days. All materials are completely finished, so no sanding or painting is required. You’ll have minimal interruption to your workflow and workspace.
    • Accessorize Even Further.  Additional options include roof decks, drop ceiling systems, pre-engineered heating and cooling units. You can even install restrooms that are more convenient to your personnel.

    • Get More Space in the Same Footprint. Two-story structures are great ways to expand your workspace without losing precious floor space. Two-story modular offices make great supervisor offices or extra storage spaces. Want the floor space but don’t need two story’s worth of offices?  Install on top of an elevated work platform and get a bird’s eye view.
    • Green. We’re proud to say that our modular units’ gypsum board component uses 95 percent post-consumer material, and the aluminum framework consists of 70 percent reclaimed or scrap material – and is completely recyclable. Furthermore, modular office systems can be entirely reconfigured and relocated, meaning you can use the materials and structures you have already purchased.
