Modular in plant offices are quickly becoming a mainstay of warehouses across the world. They’re easy to move, quick to construct, and indistinguishable from traditionally constructed offices. Prefabricated office spaces aren’t just convenient and affordable, though: they’re also more environmentally friendly than traditional office renovations, and they can provide significant savings to building owners and to manufacturers. Here are the top three reasons that modular warehouse offices are the most sustainable choice.
Many modular in-plant offices are constructed from recycled materials. Because warehouse offices are inherently small and portable, no material is wasted in their construction. What’s more, it’s easy to reuse, deconstruct, or customize the warehouse partitions as needed. Because modular warehouse offices are prepared just to the customer’s specifications, manufacturers keep fewer raw materials (particularly wood) on hand.
Safer Indoor Quality
In plant offices are primarily constructed in a controlled factory setting, which means that the air quality is closely monitored. As a result, the interior of your prefabricated office wall is less likely to have moisture, mold, or other contaminants. The overall construction is cleaner and safer for employees in the warehouse offices. Because the in-plant office is usually kept indoors, they’re also less susceptible to termites, storm damage, discoloration, flooding, and other issues that may plague traditional office spaces.
Reduced Carbon Emissions
Traditional construction accounts for nearly 40% of all carbon emissions in the US. When a modular in-plant office is constructed in a factory, it cuts emissions from transportation significantly. In addition, the simplified, streamlined designs ensure quick, efficient construction with little energy output from the manufacturer. The panels, likewise, are designed to hold thermal energy, which means energy is used to heat and cool your in-plant office. Estimates show that using modular construction for your warehouse offices reduces carbon emissions by two thirds during the construction process.
Many engineers, contractors, architects have worked with modular designs, but it’s important to find an expert who specializes in warehouse offices. Decide what features you would like your modular in-plant office to have, and look for contractors with reliable track records who are able to accommodate your needs.
