If you are running a production or manufacturing plant, one of the primary goals is to ensure operations run smoothly and efficiently. And there is no better strategic position to be than at the center of everything.
However, the need to manage from within has been grappled by its share of drawbacks. Not only is it a challenge to find a suitable office space within an industrial environment, but the manufacturing processes could be noisy and irritating for office staff.
A solution to that problem is the modular construction, which allows you to create prefabricated office spaces. In 2011, modular construction was widely popular for certain commercial applications. Healthcare facilities accounted for 49%, while 42% of respondents used modular construction for dormitories and institutions of learning. Another 42% used this mode of construction to set up manufacturing plants. It’s an ideal construction option, particularly for businesses that may expand or relocate.
This type of office is designed to be fitted in manufacturing plants, and it features comfort and convenience of a modern office. The construction of in-plant modular offices could either be permanent or relocatable and the prefabricated office may be a stand-alone structure or designed to merge with a building’s preexisting walls.
Here are some for the reasons for installing an in-plant modular office
- Time Saving
Modular offices are time efficient to build since prefabricated components are readily produced off-site. Depending on the office space, the installation process could take approximately 4 to 10 weeks from approval. This reduces the downtime while saving time cost, time and resources.
- Cost Saving
A report by the Building Industry Association of Philadelphia estimates that going modular can reduce construction cost by 9% to 20%. This is due to the elimination of design costs, and the structure can be installed in days reducing costs associated with downtime.
In-plant modular offices are versatile working spaces that can be tailored to meet different kinds of office needs. It offers you a well-structured base of all your manufacturing functions and allows your ease movement in between production lines.
- Sound Control
When it comes to increasing your office staff efficiency and productivity, particularly in industrial settings where noise is a norm, consider investing in noise proof in-plant modular office. Prefabricated office walls are designed using noise reduction materials to block industrial noise from penetrating the office.
Unlike regular construction, an inplant modular office is designed for your space constraints and machine obstruction. In case of expansion or relocation, your modular office could be readily and easily disassembled and reconfigured.
If you’re looking to manage your operations from within in an enclosed, secure and soundproofed environment, consider having an in-plant modular office.
