Many people make the mistake of assuming modular offices are only temporary solutions. While some modular buildings can be used as interim structures for special projects, many modular offices can be built with the same permanent intentions as conventionally constructed buildings.
While the term “permanent construction” can recall images of the Great Pyramids or medieval churches, permanency in a contemporary setting is excessive. Many business owners desire an office durable enough to last 25 years. Conventional construction methods can usually ensure this lifespan, but are generally more expensive and time consuming to build than modular construction. On the other hand, hiring a reliable contractor can result in modular offices that last as long as 50 years with proper care due to:
- High quality products
- Easy redesign capabilities
- Dependable construction methods
- Sustainable building practices
- Modular Design Options
High Quality Products Ensure Long Lasting Structures
Some people believe that materials like steel, concrete, brick, or stone are the only materials capable of creating long lasting structures through conventional construction. However, modular offices use similarly strong materials to build durable structures, including extruded aluminum. By using high quality products for posts, framing components, and modular wall systems, your modular office will stand the test of time.
Easy Redesign Capabilities Simplify Complete Remodels
One commonly known aspect of modular offices is their ability to be taken apart, redesigned, and reconstructed. While this procedure doesn’t immediately convey a sense of permanency, consider that remodeling a conventional constructed modular office requires that the building be completely torn down and built from scratch. If you foresee your business expanding or remodeling in the future, investing in a modular office is a more permanent solution than a conventionally constructed office. Easy redesign capabilities are also helpful if you plan on selling your structure to another company who will then want to redesign the interior.
Dependable Construction Methods Provide Durable Offices
In addition to using strong materials, modular offices use more dependable construction methods than conventional construction. For instance, construction quality management is easier and better with modular building because everything is built in a controlled setting.
Sustainable Building Practices Cause Less Stress Later On
The very word “sustainable” means long-term. Modular design embraces sustainable building practices to ensure modular offices inherently have more durable attributes such as:
- Better energy efficiency
- Materials with recyclable potential
- Better waste management
Modular Design Options Offer Variety That Withstands the Test of Time
Some business owners don’t think modular offices have an aesthetic appeal that will stand the test of time. However, you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics when choose a modular office. Many modular offices can be customized to look modern or classic with assets such as sliding or glass partitions and other features.
