If you’re starting a new business, the thought of building your offices can be daunting. Sure, you want to be your own boss and not to operate under a lease, but building an office from the ground up can be an expensive and complicated process. With that being said, it’s important to have a smart and cost-efficient construction plan. Today, more and more businesses choose modular construction as the best solution for their needs. Here are just some of the ways modular office construction can benefit your business.
Faster Build Time
Modular buildings are constructed in a climate controlled factory environment with the help of state-of-the-art machines and production techniques. Since the whole construction takes place off-site, there’s no risk of delays due to weather or other outside factors. This means that contractors can avoid all the setbacks that are common with onsite construction and give you a very precise estimate of when the whole process will be finished. As opposed to traditionally constructed buildings, a modular office building can be finished 30-40% faster.
Great Cost Savings
The fact that a modular office building is constructed in a factory environment where all the machines, tools, equipment and materials are already present, means that there are no costs of transporting things to the site. What’s more, the decreased construction time also reduces the labour costs involved.
By now we’ve established that modular office buildings are cheaper and faster to build, but does that also mean they are poorly made? Quite the contrary. The fact that these buildings are constructed in a controlled facility, reduces the risk of potential problems and faults. The materials are all safely preserved indoors where they aren’t exposed to any outside elements such as humidity, as opposed to a traditional construction site. As a result, the materials are less likely to have structural damage or be prone to developing mould. Additionally, since every module is constructed as a separate unit when they’re all assembled together, each office room will have walls, ceilings, and floors of double thickness. This provides the building with an extra layer of energy and sound insulation.
As a business, you are bound to experience change as you’re growing. With that being said, it will be of great convenience if your workspace can also change with you. When you opt for modular construction, your office space can be reconfigured and rearranged at any time in the future according to your needs. And best of all, you don’t have to undergo a loud and expensive reconstruction process. The modular construction also makes the building portable which allows you to change your location if you like, without leaving your office building behind and having to buy, lease or build a new space.
