How to Create a Modular Office Space in a Production Area
The existing concrete block walled office area was not ideal for having a quality control room so we used an open space in the production area to install the modular building system.
This modular office system is a 3 wall system because we were able to use the existing concrete block wall as the fourth wall to save money and space. The building is 12' x 20' x 12' x 8' high. This office has 6 windows and one 3' wide swing door and there is provision for six 120 volt duplex receptacles and two combination phone / computer jack outlets. We did not include a roof deck and drop ceiling on this system because the open top allows for the natural light and production floor light to filter in and also allows the overhead sprinkler system to work for this space as well.
The walls are constructed from 1/2" thick gypsum x 2" poly core x 1/2" thick gypsum vinyl covered walls for a total of 3" thick. These walls have a Class A fire rating and also help with noise control from the production area.
This type of modular construction is fast easy and inexpensive to implement into your facility. This modular office system was designed, shipped and installed in a matter of about 3 weeks. The maintenance department handled the installation of this building in a matter of 4 hours one afternoon. Very easy way to create modular office space in a production area.
