The good news… your business is growing faster than anticipated! The bad news… you’re running low on space to support that growth. Increased manufacturing output may require new equipment or additional assembly, finishing, or staging spaces. You may also need expanded in-plant office space for managers and administration. Relocation would be great, but when time, availability, and expense prevent you from moving, consider making space improvements in your current facility with the use of in-plant modular office and work spaces.
Modular Manufacturing May Seem Familiar
The off-site assembly line fabrication methods used in constructing modular offices are not so different than many of those used in your manufacturing facility. Quality, speed, and cost-effectiveness are all areas in which assembly line manufacturing provides advantages.
Cost savings through bulk purchasing and efficiency in production are also benefits that modular buildings provide manufacturers who need to reassess the use of space in their production or warehouse areas. Unlike traditional construction, off-site modular construction results in no costly weather delays and no material loss due to exposure to the elements or theft.
Plant expansion needs to be completed with few disruptions and minimal shut down so your facility continues to meet production schedules. With 90% of the construction process taking place away from your facility, the disruptions to your employees is minimal. When production can continue as normal, you’ll suffer no revenue loss due to expansion.
Utilizing modular construction meets all the unique needs that building and installing an in-plant office or specialized production space presents. Expanding with modular provides a way to attach more space of practically any dimension directly to an existing warehouse, with little interruption. Modular constructed offices or workrooms, more often, are installed in-plant or as stand-alone buildings on a manufacturer’s property.
Modular Solutions for In-Plant Expansion
If you weren’t familiar with the concept of modular construction, then you probably didn’t realize the number of space needs specific to the manufacturing industry that could be solved with modular buildings.
Modular construction has the ability to match the same controlled levels of particle contamination and produce consistent temperature, humidity, and air pressure as clean rooms built through traditional construction.
Control Rooms / Enclosure Rooms
In-plant control and enclosure rooms can be designed and built to isolate vapors and particles from painting and finishing, noise levels from construction and machinery, and extreme temperatures.
