Modular offices aren’t just for the corporate environment. In the busy military world, having a reliable and affordable option for housing military personnel is a great way for them to get their work done efficiently. Before you begin to design your modular office for use in your military building, it is important that you consider the building conditions beforehand. In doing so, you can determine if any systems need to be upgraded so they can run at their most efficient.

This past April, NASA received one of its first shipments of work platforms for the Space Launch System (SLS) project.

A Quick Rundown of the SLS Project
At its most basic, the SLS is a launch vehicle designed to send craft into deep space and support “the highest-ever payload mass and volume capability and energy to speed missions through space,” according to NASA. It will be integrated with the Orion spacecraft as well as smaller “CubeSats” as secondary payloads to be deployed later on in flight. In short, it will be multitasking—something other exploration-class spacecraft have not yet done. [Read more…]
Prefabricated guard booths are essential to the security of any military area. They should also be safe and comfortable for those operating it. As a result, they often need essential additions for the comfort, convenience, and safety of military personnel and supplies.
Most military guard shacks are operated 24/7. The need for the continual presence of personnel means that adding a restroom is essential. Adding a restroom to a prefabricated guard shack means that guards don’t have to leave their station or use a portable toilet.

Many military guard shacks are placed near historical sites that require all buildings to meet that aesthetic. [Read more…]
