Are you planning to expand your business or start a new one? If so, you'll probably need an office.

The good news is you no longer have to wait for months on end and spend thousands of dollars in the construction of an office building. Instead, you can opt for an inplant office that can be built within a matter of a few days.

What is an inplant office, anyway?

A modular office (also known as an in plant office) is one built using prefabricated modules that can be quickly assembled to create a sound structure for business purposes. These pre-built walls and floors are strong and sturdy, which means it's possible to construct even a two-story or three-story office with them.

Another unique feature of in plant offices is that you don't even have to find a separate space for them, as they can be built inside an existing warehouse or manufacturing plant. Typically, such offices provide space for client services and administrative work within a larger factory, distribution center, or other building.

Now that you know what an inplant office is, what are its advantages? Why should you choose this type of modular office over other options?

Fast Construction

Since many of the modules like walls and floors are already built, there is no need to reinvent the wheel. It's just a matter of putting it all together -- which is why it takes about 25% less time to construct inplant offices as compared to traditional construction methods. This way, your office will be up and running within just a few days.

Reduced Costs

Along with quick construction, the cost of an in plant office will also be much less substantial than a regular one. A report by the Building Industry Association of Philadelphia estimates that the cost of modular construction will be around 9% to 20% less than traditional construction. This can translate to huge savings, especially if you plan to construct a big office space.

Increased Flexibility

Modular offices give you the flexibility to construct the way you want. You can have a small office inside your manufacturing unit or you can convert an entire warehouse into an attractive office space, depending on your business needs. You can even have an office space on a fork truck base! Getting construction permits is easy as well, since construction will take place inside an already approved area. In addition, you can get more out of your office space and can even use it as lunch or break rooms for employees, to send and receive shipping, for quality control, and more.

Added Aesthetics

Many people tend to think that modular offices will be dull and boring. But that's not really true, considering that the modular construction industry has come a long way over the last decade. The builders of inplant offices put in a lot of time and effort into design, so you can choose from a wide range of accessories such as high ceilings, FRP panels, overhead doors, warehouse partitions, and more. Many vinyl and paint colors are also available for these modular spaces, so you can let your imagination run wild to give a bright and cheerful look to your office.

Reduced Disturbance

There is no mess, dust, or construction noise associated when building these offices. That's because the builders are simply putting the existing products together, rather than using bricks and stones to create a structure from scratch. As a result, clean-up and disturbances will be minimal. This is why you can have this office anywhere, as the construction will not affect the ongoing operations of your business in any way.
