The Step By Step Process Of Construction Of An Office Trailer

Many businesses require a temporary office space at some point or the other. A construction company may require a temporary office at a far away building site or a hospital may need a space in a remote location for a medical camp. Today, portable office trailers are a cost-effective solution for such temporary business needs. These office trailers are pre-manufactured units that are delivered and installed at the site. You can either buy or rent an office trailer. The option of customization is also available. Whether you need an office trailer with bathroom or an office trailer with a deck or kitchen, you can get it made as per your requirements. In this article, we will take you through the steps of constructing these customized office trailers:

Customer Consultation

The first step in constructing an office trailer for you is to understand your requirements. A thorough customer consultation is carried out by our project manager. Information regarding your budget, the land, the size of the office required, the interior and exterior finish, and amenities required, is gathered. For instance, if you want an office trailer with bathroom or simply want a space to set up a kitchen, then the details regarding the number of bathrooms or the size of the kitchen and the appliances to be fit in will be required to design a space as per your requirement.

Design and Engineering

Once the customer’s requirements are identified, the next step is to create a design as the basis for construction. The design and engineering teams work together on this. This is because, like traditional construction, modular construction is also subject to certain federal and provincial regulations. For instance, constructions are required to comply with certain codes surrounding plumbing and electricity. Bearing in mind all the laws, construction drawings are prepared.

Site Preparation

Office trailers can be set up in a variety of geographical settings. And, the ground everywhere may need to be leveled to support the structure. After the design is prepared, the site needs to be prepared to set up an office trailer. This is usually done after the customer obtains building permits and approvals. A survey of the site followed by grading and excavation takes place. And, then the foundation is installed. The advantage of opting for a modular structure like office trailer is that while the site is being prepared, the building is already being constructed elsewhere.

Transportation and Installation

Modular construction is all about cutting downtime by building units or modules of a structure off-site. Once the structures are made, they are weather sealed and loaded on trucks to be transported to the site. Final installation takes place on the site. The modules that are delivered are put together and installed on the site. This can take anywhere from one day to several weeks, depending on the size of the project.

Office trailers are quick to construct and cost-effective. This makes them an apt solution for all your temporary needs. If you are looking for an office trailer, then get in touch with us at Northgate Industries.
