In 2022, portable offices are continuing to grow in popularity among forward-thinking business owners. Increasing numbers of organisations in the Education, Healthcare, Aerospace and Public sectors (and many more besides) are investing in portable office projects to support their operations.
According to data from Mordor Intelligence, the Modular Building market has now emerged from its pandemic lull and entered a growth phase. In fact, it is forecast to attain a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) in excess of 12% over the next five years! We are excited to be a part of the Modular Building industry as interest in our work continues to grow.
But, what are the most compelling benefits of commissioning a modular office as opposed to a traditional bricks-and-mortar equivalent? Here is a quick explainer for your reference:
Faster Turnaround and Lower Costs
A modular office project can be delivered from start to finish up to 30-50% faster than a commensurate bricks-and-mortar project. This translates to substantial savings on the overall costs (as construction crews will spend less time working on site).
What’s more, as the modules which comprise the finished office block are assembled in an indoor offsite factory, the risks of project delays due to reasons such as inclement weather are kept to a minimum.
Excellent Quality Control
On a related note, given that the modules are built in a controlled factory environment, we are able to assure a much higher level of build quality. Each and every aspect of the build process can be closely monitored, helping ensure that the final product is sturdy, resilient and satisfies all relevant building regulations.
A Sustainable Option
If you’re running a business with an eye on sustainability, commissioning a portable office can be a smart way to reduce your carbon footprint. Modular construction typically generates less material waste and requires less energy (resulting in less pollution) than traditional building projects.
Adaptable to Changing Needs
Modular buildings are far more adaptable to business’ changing needs than their traditionally-built counterparts. For instance, if your business grows and you require a larger office space, additional modules can easily be added to extend your office block.
What’s more, as the name suggests, portable offices can be relocated with relative ease, should you decide to move operations to a different premises! The modules can be separated, lifted by crane onto a lorry trailer and transported to the new location.
