Modular is leading construction in so many ways, let us unpack some of it for you!
Modular construction is quickly becoming the preferred method for commercial building worldwide and, within this market, modular office buildings are the fastest-growing sector. The ‘Modular Building Institute Permanent Modular Construction Report 2020’ indicates that almost half of all modular construction in the US is focused on the commercial office market.
In Australia, while not yet the same volume as the US, prefabricated buildings are growing in this sector and offer a series of advantages over conventional builds. Tasbuilt has a number of completed office projects and many others confirmed in our schedule for the coming months because of the key benefits prefabricated, modular buildings can provide.
The changing office environment
Ever since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies have questioned the purpose of traditional office space and are re-evaluating what the new office normal may look like and where it may be located. Despite the rise in working from home, there are key reasons why we may see an increase in the construction of prefabricated modular offices to meet new working space demands.
These trends make it likely that companies will consider a wider variety of office space in more locations and prefabricated, modular office buildings can help companies rapidly respond to the new working space demands.
Why choose pre-fabricated office buildings?
If your organisation is looking to meet the changing trends in office demand, modular office buildings provide plenty of benefits.
Modular buildings are also easier to take apart and recycle. Whether it’s entire prefabricated office buildings, or individual components (wall frames or facades), it’s possible to take these buildings apart and re-use materials later. This further reduces waste.
An exciting future for modular office buildings
With changes in expectations about where offices are located and how these spaces are used, it seems reasonable to expect growth in flexible office space in the coming years. And with their speed of construction, flexibility, and lower environmental impact, prefabricated modular office buildings will play an important role.
