Many variables can pressure organizations to either construct new buildings or add on to existing buildings. Hiring a large number of employees can cause the ranks to swell beyond building capacity. Contract labor may also be brought in for special projects that require their own special office space to operate. Before you invest in the exorbitant cost of traditional construction, consider the alternative of prefabricated modular office buildings.
Experience has already taught us that clients can reduce construction time by as much as 40 percent when they go the prefab route. Furthermore, cost of materials may also be lower depending on the materials that go into constructing your new space. Investing in a customized building designed for your particular facility allows you greater flexibility as well. You can have the space built as large or small as you wish in whatever floor plan is most suitable to the needs of your personnel.
Prefab offices are designed to exceed the building codes in your area so that all necessary compliance issues are taken care of well in advance of installation. The amazing performance of prefab offices is the result of the way they are constructed. While your site is being prepared for the new building, the manufacturer is installing all the necessary plumbing, wiring, mechanical equipment, fire safety equipment, and interior architecture. The building is then shipped in sections and assembled at your site so that it will be ready for immediate use upon completion.
Prefabricated modular office buildings have come a long way since their primitive prototypes were first used in isolated outdoor arenas. Today’s designs have now approached the aesthetics of conventional buildings to the point that vertical markets across the board are investing in prefab construction. Just a few examples include, but are not limited to, the following industries:
· Rehabilitation centers for drug and alcohol addiction recovery are now using prefabricated offices.
· Doctors are also using prefab environments for general checkups, basic clinic services, and even operating rooms.
· Research and development companies are using prefab buildings to create special laboratories for design and testing.
· Hospitals are another major client base for prefab offices. The continued growth of the medical industry in many major cities has led to the need for additional office space for staff, out-patient care units, clinical research facilities, ambulatory facilities, and psychiatric diagnostic and treatment areas.
Prefabricated modular office buildings feature customized interior and exterior spaces. The exterior of the building is designed to match the exterior of existing onsite structures. Buildings that are intended for open areas can also be built to compliment the surrounding commercial landscape so they add attraction factor to the company property.
The interior of the office will feature all of the normal accommodations of typical buildings, including private office space; break rooms, meeting rooms, cubicle areas, and restrooms. While the exact cost of a prefab building must be determined on a case-by-case basis, it is often reported among material handling companies like ours that some clients have paid as little as $40.00 per square foot compared to up to $200.00 per square foot in an equivalent, conventional building.
