How Sturdy Is A Prefabricated Modular Office Building

Prefabricated Modular officeHow sturdy is a prefabricated modular office building compared to a conventional office structure?
They are at least equally sturdy. Manufacturers and material handling vendors like us seek to exceed building codes, fire safety codes, and accessibility codes so that our clients will not have to worry about the soundness of the structure. We want our clients to feel confident in the fact that even though they are paying drastically less for each square foot of their building, the quality of that building is every bit as good as one they would have paid a lot more money to build, and would have had to wait a lot longer to have been finished.

Inspectors have found that prefab buildings have consistently met the structural requirements necessary for weathering hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes without having to be reinforced with additional support structures.

Is there a limit on the size of our prefabricated modular office building?
There is no limit to the actual size of the overall building, but there are size limits to the individual modules used to create the building. For example, if you are building a research and development wing for your company, you may want to create offices for your managers, cubicle spaces for your laboratory technicians, one or more actual laboratory areas for development and testing, and one or more storage areas. Each of these areas will be composed of at least one module that will need to be safely transported overland. These size limits vary from state to state and are determined not by us, but by the Department of Transportation.

What are some industries that are using prefab office space?
One of the biggest industries we are starting to work with is the medical industry. Hospitals that need to add on to their facility find that prefab buildings can be used for a variety of purposes including outpatient centers, general clinics, operating rooms, and psychiatric facilities.

How long does it take to build a prefabricated modular office building?
Experience has shown it saves as much as 40% on time to project completion. The efficiency of the design, transport, and assembly process is responsible for this. Safety equipment, wiring, plumbing, and interior architecture are manufactured into the building prior to shipment. Your site will be prepared early for its arrival during the construction process so that when the modules arrive they can be rapidly assembled and ready for use as soon as possible.
