Has the enrollment at your school far exceeded your expectations and now you need extra classroom space? Is your main office building is under construction for the next few months, leaving you without a safe, convenient place to store your documents? Do you need a fast and efficient office for your construction site? There are many reasons you could need cost-effective, quick space or storage for your business.
Looking at all the choices out there it isn’t hard to get confused about which option—an office trailer or a modular building—is best for you and your business. Follow me as I make it easy to determine the correct choice for your needs.
Office trailers, or mobile offices, as they are sometimes known, are usually pre-fabricated buildings leased, rented, or sold to companies looking for a short-term, mobile workspace. Office trailer dealers can provide your business with an office trailer equipped with doors, windows, electrical wiring, HVAC, and sometimes basic furnishings as well. These office trailers are not one-size-fits-all, either, as they come in a variety of models and sizes to suit your needs, and can be delivered almost anywhere quickly.
Modular buildings are prefabricated buildings that are typically manufactured in a plant to a customer’s specifications. Modular buildings are generally sold to customers looking for a more timely and cost-effective means of obtaining long-term (3 years or longer) space. Fully customizable, many modular buildings are used as permanent structures for schools, health clinics, office buildings and more.
There are several key differences between office trailers and modular buildings you should be aware of before you make your decision.
Modular buildings can be purchased for a typical price range of $35-$200 per square foot, depending heavily on the floor plan and requirements. Classrooms and other buildings that do not require highly technical or specialized features are usually on the low end of the spectrum, while hospitals, research labs and other structures that require sophisticated ventilation and specialized floor plans are near the top of the spectrum.
When deciding which option is most financially prudent for you, discuss the costs with an accountant or other trained professional.
