As Your Company Grows, So Can Your Modular Design
Expansion. That was your goal when you started your company. You didn’t plan to stay stagnant—you planned to grow your business and take it as far as you could. Now that you’ve achieved your goal, the next part is the physical expansion to keep pace with your growth.
You might not know that modular structures can expand right along with your business. You can go from having a single-story structure to a 2-story modular office building, or from several hundred square feet to several thousand.
In the following blog, we will explore the benefits of using a modular design and how it can scale along with your business.
Why Use Modular?
Some people have an outdated idea of what a modular structure is like. They think of poor-quality, cheap structures that are made from subpar materials. However, the modular structures of today are nothing like that.
They're Built to Code & Safety Standards
Safety is the most important factor of any building project. It’s essential to be compliant with the most recent Canadian National Model Codes so you won’t incur any fines or suffer any consequences.
Fortunately, you don’t have to worry when your structure comes from BOXX Canada. All our modular structures are built in adherence to all current safety standards and codes, so you can have them delivered and set up knowing that building safety is taken care of.
They Offer Quick Delivery & Assembly
Having a successful business means that you are financially responsible and don’t like wasting time or money. That’s why you need to have your structure delivered and in place as quickly and safely as possible.
While the timeline may vary for leasing a structure versus custom designing your own, our process is always faster than a traditional build.
And when you choose a modular structure, the fabrication and site prep takes place at the same time, shortening the installation schedule. Another positive is that weather delays aren’t an issue since our buildings are built in a factory setting. Not only is this good schedule-wise but using modular is also environmentally friendly since there isn’t as much construction waste.
They're Customized for Your Needs
While you can renovate a space for your business, wouldn't it be easier to move in somewhere already customized for you?
One of the benefits of starting with a customized space is it saves you time and money. You won’t need to retrofit buildings, go through the construction and permitting process, or hit major time delays.
You can also build in features that you might want in the future or leave space for that expansion. For example, if you know you will need more storage for inventory, you can add that in the initial design or you can create a mental plan for that space.
It’ll also be easy to add to your existing structures if you decide to physically expand your buildings.
Flexible Modular Design Options from BOXX Canada
Now that you’ve heard about the benefits of using a modular design, BOXX Canada offers several structures that can be used to expand a current building.
Our “building block” design allows you to easily create flexible floor plans and structures. Essentially they are modular stacking boxes that can be stacked up to three units high. The energy-efficient design also has detachable walls, floors, and roofs enabling you to create stackable complexes to suit your unique needs.
The steel frame provides a durable structure and the galvanized walls will stand up to any climate, so it will work in almost any geographic location. And the interior can easily be integrated with heating, cooling, and electrical systems that you may already have in place.
Our mobile offices are easily transportable since they’re on a frame with wheels. You can move them to different areas of your job site or business, wherever you need the extra space.
Mobile offices can be used as temporary offices, meeting rooms, or storage spaces. Another feature of our mobile offices is that you can customize them to suit your needs. You don’t need to force a structure to work for you—you can get one that does work for you.
Office complexes provide a way for you to quickly and efficiently build more office space. They can range in size from 1,000 to 6,000 square feet and provide the perfect solution when you need more space than our standard single-wide office spaces.
The complexes can include independent offices, washrooms, conference or meeting rooms, and large open spaces for workstations. They are ideal as project offices, for corporate space, and for growing businesses in need of more room.
If you have very specific space requirements that don’t fit the typical design of standard modular buildings, you can always go the custom building route. BOXX offers structures that you can customize in size, appearance, layout, and materials.
For example, you can design your modular structure’s layout design to be an open- or a closed-floor plan with offices and meeting rooms.
One of the custom add-ons you can select is our washrooms and lavatories. These can be delivered with built-in water and waste tanks if on-site services are not available, or they can have external tanks. A benefit to adding them is that they are ready to use once the installation is complete.
Other customizations you can add are stairs, landings, or ramps for easy access to the structure. That way your structure is ready to use the moment it's installed.
BOXX Canada also offers customizations for your interior design, too. There are several different furniture packages you can choose from, from office furniture to seating for a conference room or lunchroom. You can add in other decor items like clocks, whiteboards, or calendars.
