According to a report by the Building Industry Association of Philadelphia, modular construction can reduce building costs by 9%. In some cases, builders can save up to 20%. How does that work, you ask? Well, here are just some of the many ways modular construction can help save you money on your warehouse offices.
No more weather delays
Modular warehouse offices are made up of many separate pieces, and each of those pieces are manufactured in a controlled factory setting off-site. Then, these pieces are shipped to the building site and assembled on-site. Most of the construction process performed indoors, so there's no need to account for weather delays or damage caused by inclement conditions that often result in botched construction timelines.
Decreased site downtime
Every facility needs to be up and running in order for you to start making money, so every second that regular operations are not taking place, you're losing money. Fortunately, with modular offices, downtime can be minimized, if not eliminated completely. For a panelized modular office system, no heavy machinery is needed to set up the office. This makes scheduling easier and allows your facility to operate without having to divert work processes around the equipment.
Less site cleaup
Since modular warehouse offices are prefabricated in an off-site facility, the job site will not require many custom cuts or adjustments in order to erect the structure. This allows the structure to be fully installed in the facility with little to no on-site construction. That means no sawdust or other construction waste materials to clean up after the project is over. The lack of clean up saves you time and money; it can also have a positive effect on your organization's productivity.
Finally, you don't have to buy a completely new structure if you want to make adjustments to one of your modular warehouse offices in the future. It's normal to outgrow your office and need to make upgrades to your current structure, and modular construction allows you to make those changes easily and cheaply.
Modular construction certainly has many perks, and cost-effectiveness is one of them. If you're ready to reap these benefits of a modular warehouse office, let National Partitions help you with the next step.
