What is a Modular Office?

Widely used in industrial warehouses and manufacturing operations, modular offices are customizable applications that are a cost-effective way to provide office space. Modular office systems are prefabricated and include the amenities necessary to operate an office, such as electrical wiring, HVAC, and fire protection systems.

Cost of Modular Offices and Office Systems

Investing in a modular office can cost as little as $25 per square foot for materials, with most turn-key projects saving upwards of 15-20% compared to standard framing and drywall construction. Design factors that impact prices include:

  • Mezzanine Design
  • Additional Window and Door Applications
  • Load-Bearing Ceiling
  • 2-Story Design

Other customizations on modular office systems are HVAC, electrical wiring, fire sprinklers, and soundproofing upgrades.  Get a modular office system quote to learn more about the cost for your project today.

What is a Partition Wall?

Full-height or partial-height modular partition walls provide an efficient way to divide existing spaces. Custom-height office partitions utilize a room’s existing ceiling system to create an enclosed space for offices, breakrooms, or conference rooms. Add a partition wall to a factory floor to separate departments, organize workflow, and provide privacy and security to existing areas. Design possibilities start at standard 8’ high walls and go up to existing roof heights for full separation. Our partition walls can include standard doors, windows, roll-up doors, and electrical.
