Space is an important asset for any business because it means more capacity to expand. For warehouses, in particular, every square inch of space matters and that’s why managers try to optimize and fully make use of the available. However, traditional construction methods can be capital intensive and time-consuming to get a structure up and running for use.
Fortunately, if you’re operating a warehouse and running out of office space, there’s a new building technology that eliminates the need for building from scratch. Modular and in-plant offices can offer a quick solution to modern warehouse space needs, including other benefits such as time, labor and money savings.
What is an in-plant modular office?
A modular office or building is a prefabricated office space designed for warehouse segmentation. These additional spaces are can be used for different needs, including cold-room storage, security room, administrative office, or a break room for workers. The aspect of being prefabricated makes portable offices ideal for any warehouse space layout and configuration needs. They can be built as a single level or multi-story, independent or attached to the existing walls. And every important feature, as well as personal specifications, can be included in the design. Plumbing, electric, HVAC systems, doors and ceiling can all be part of a modular warehouse office. Prefabricated offices can also be disassembled and easily relocated.
Looking to Optimize Your Warehouse Space! Here are the Benefits of Having Modular Offices
Prefabricated office spaces bring many benefits to the table if you’re looking to optimize your warehouse space as much as possible — without the hassle associated with full construction projects.
Quick Project Turn Around
Modular construction offers quality office space at a much-reduced cost and time. Because the project uses prefabricated office walls and panels, they are easy to assemble and ready for use once shipped to your warehouse. The partitioning system allows portable offices to be configured in different ways depending on the available space and your preferences. You can choose to add A/C units, kitchen, toilet, windows or lighting fixtures, and basically anything that can make the space more comfortable as it is productive. Quick project turnaround also make economical sense compared to building from scratch or having to look for a permanent office building.
Eliminate the Bottleneck and Bureaucratic Building Permit Process
Normally, for any building construction to take place the local building authorities would have to approve it first. This can take time and money to process the permit. Depending on the specific project needs, the building process can vary for every modular office. Inplant offices offer a lot of flexibility and can be built indoors or outdoors.
Customizable Sizing Specifications
Prefabricated office spaces are highly customized and be designed according to specifications to meet the exact office use. Modular offices can be used in highly sensitive production areas as an effective infectious disease control measure. The custom options make them ideal for limited or irregular warehouse space, and gives you the ability to upscale or downscale in a cost-effective manner.
