Modular offices / office blocks and buildings are known by many names such as pre-fabricated, temporary and mobile offices. These names all refer to the same thing which is a modular building. The term modular office block refers to the way the buildings are built in “modules”. This method has been likened to the lego concept where each part is built singly then added to the main structure. In theory, a modular structure can be as small or as large as you like based on what permits you have.
Pre-fabricated modular offices and buildings are a cost-effective solution to the space needs of any business from a back garden office to a multi-room facility. These structures are a cost-effective, productivity-boosting solution.
The flexibility of the modular / pre-fabricated concept has greater benefits than mainstream construction. Up until recently prefabricated office’s were simply a wooden box with a door and window. Although these type of buildings are still used today (we ourselves still make this type of portable office) we find they are mainly used on construction sites where the focus is on purpose over form.
Unlike brick built buildings, modular offices /office blocks/buildings are made of much lighter materials so the foundations do not have to be as complex. For a permanent modular building, we are looking at a concrete base rather than a full foundation. Again this aids in the cost reduction of a modular project. Once the prefabricated building has been completed in the factory the installation process is quite straight forward and swift in its application.
