You may or may not be familiar with the term “modular office”. So, let’s start with the very basics. What is a modular office? Modular offices are flexible and non-traditional office spaces that are made with alternative materials instead of your typical brick and mortar building. In simplified terms, you can think of modular offices as lego bricks. You can purchase different pieces to form your desired structure and even take them apart and move as needed.
Modular offices give you the flexibility to create a “pop-up” office space in a larger building. Some modular offices, like the one pictured above, are built in warehouses to serve a variety of different purposes. Modular offices are not connected to the foundation of the building, which means they are portable and can be reconfigured.
What is the purpose of a modular office?
The purpose of a modular office is to provide high-quality office space in a non-traditional office environment. The modular office can be used for a variety of different purposes, including space for desks, waiting rooms, and break/lunch rooms. In the warehouse environment, a modular office can be very helpful in providing a divide from the warehouse environment. Whether you need a seperate place for your employees to take a comfortable break, desks for administrative tasks, a quiet spot to answer phone calls and emails, or equipment that you want to keep out of the warehouse environment, a modular office might be a great fit for your warehouse.
Another great feature about modular offices is that they can be added to an already existing environment without the need to reconstruct your original building. Custom designs can be created to fit into whatever space is available for use making them incredibly versatile. Because of this modular offices provide maximum flexibility in any environment and will even allow you to adapt to potential changes in the future.
Cost is another important aspect to consider when it comes to modular offices. The benefit of a modular office is that it is much cheaper than constructing an entire new brick and mortar building. You can also utilize your current space instead of having to expand your property.
