Modular buildings have been around for decades, but the materials, structures, and requirements for usage have changed with the times. They can be a single room, office, conference room, breakroom, restroom, and so on. Portable modular buildings have many uses, such as a guardhouse, a concession stand, a press box, a machine enclosure, and many other types of buildings constructed to your specifications.
Normally, the raw materials would be shipped to a job site and the construction would begin at the actual location. When the workday is done, construction sites can suffer losses from material theft. With a modular building, the fabricating of components is done inside a factory, saving you money in several ways: No worries about theft of materials; quick professional installation with no downtime to your daily business; no expensive architects to hire; maintenance free; and reconfigurable. The modular building system includes windows, doors, walls, and other accessories that are made using modernized production techniques; pre-wiring of electrical service is available. Mobile modular buildings in NYC offer all the benefits mentioned above and a quick solution to the housing shortage.
Features of Modular Buildings
A modular building can be an outdoor standalone structure, or can be assembled inside of a larger building, such as a warehouse, factory, or office building. There is no project either too big or too small that a modular building is not well-suited for. A modular building typically has windows, doors, finished walls, lighting, flooring of your choice, and can be pre-wired for specific usage of the building. Modular buildings have HVAC and air filtration systems. Modular buildings can be ordered in any color or style, and there are many options available to fit almost anyone’s budget.
Types of Modular Buildings
A breakroom for employees would need countertops, sink, space for refrigerator, vending machines, and the type of electrical outlets needed to accommodate all the appliances. Entry doors can be solid or full glass, and have locks or windows. A conference room might need electrical outlets and network wiring for computers, or a drop-down screen for a projector. A dark room for photography would need solid black walls, including the framing and ceiling. The framing can be powder-coated with any color desired. Audio sound booths with special components can be designed for music rooms and acoustic rooms.
Restrooms and retail space are common applications for modular buildings. For schools that are bursting at the seams with students, portable modular classrooms are ideal. When an extra classroom is no longer needed, it can be listed for sale as a used modular building. Concession stands, ticket boxes, and press boxes for sports fields or raceways have high quality wall systems and are a quick solution for sporting events. All these are available in moveable modular buildings that are built on a base that can be lifted with a forklift, to be easily relocated. Modular buildings can also be constructed around large immovable equipment, allaying any down time.
Modular buildings can save time and money, but can also offer certain tax benefits. Since modular buildings can be taken apart and moved, they qualify as furniture, not a permanent structure. Depending on the dollar amount involved, they can be fully depreciated in 7 years, where a conventional building depreciates over 39 years.
