Modular offices are a relatively new concept that was created in the late seventies and eighties as an alternative to the conventional brick-and-mortar business that many people used to be associated with. These offices, or as they were then called, Clients’ Service Offices were designed to be highly mobile and easy to move from place to place depending on the needs of their clientele. Because of their flexibility, modular offices quickly gained favour among the business community and from many different industries. Today they are commonly used as temporary office space, or even permanent office space depending on how you want them.
As a rule modular offices are made from either wood aluminum or steel and can range in size from a single room to huge buildings that are capable of housing several hundred employees. One of the main advantages of using modular offices is that they provide for a faster turnaround time than the more traditional types of construction and can generally cost less per square foot. Because they are based on shipping containers that are essentially made to order and are easily assembled, the entire process from when you first contact a company to the time when the container is actually on your property can be condensed to just a few days.
Another benefit of a modular building is that they are extremely customizable and can be designed to fit the particular needs of the individual client. For instance, some individuals who have offices in a certain city may want something that is especially suited to that city. Therefore, they will require a certain type of wall or window and maybe also a door or two. This is completely down to individual requirements and what is actually required in the office or commercial space you are looking to use. There are certainly other customizations that can be made, but these are some of the most common and popular.
