Expanding Office Space Without Compromising on Quality

As your business changes, you’ll need to consider how your offices work for you, your business and your employees. Modular buildings provide high-quality and modern office space for many organisations, and their flexibility makes them perfect for changing business needs.

Whether your business is expanding or the needs of your staff have changed, transforming your office space is a significant consideration. The benefits of modular offices can help your business create an inspirational working environment that is versatile enough to adapt to your requirements.

Furthermore, the high standards you can expect from modular construction means your business has a top-quality and cost-effective working space. Providing your staff with a high-quality building has numerous benefits for your business.


Maximising potential with a modular office

Since returning to the office after the global pandemic, people’s attitudes to office working have changed drastically. Many employees are seeking a more flexible approach, with a lot of businesses operating flexible hours or hybrid working. This adjustment in people’s approach to office working has had an effect on how companies look at their premises.

According to a report from the Office of National Statistics (ONS), published in February 2023, 28% of people reported they were hybrid working. Furthermore, the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development (CIPD) has found that 71% of employees say that flexible working is important to them when looking for a new role.

With this in mind, for your organisation to perform well, you must consider the thoughts of your staff and what they expect from their working environment. Thinking carefully about your office space helps recruit new staff and retain your current team.


What do employees want from office space?

When you are planning your new modular office development, here are some things to think about to get the best out of your staff. Ask yourself and your team what they need from a comfortable and inspiring office.

  • Physical and mental wellbeing 

Office spaces can have a considerable impact on the wellbeing of staff. Many businesses are seeing the benefits of focusing on the mental wellbeing of their teams. As well as the procedures and processes put in place to look after people, our surroundings have a massive effect on our wellbeing.

Consider getting as much natural light into your office as possible. Incorporate large windows to bring in the light from outside. Also, bring the outside in with plants and greenery to create a more productive environment.

Modular buildings come with great design features to help with the productivity of staff. Also, installing a good HVAC system for better ventilation will improve the comfort of your team.

  • Versatile spaces 

Open spaces are great for productivity and comfort; staff perform better if they are not crowded into a small space. Think about increasing the space between your workstations to promote a more comfortable work environment. Open spaces make it easier for individuals and teams to collaborate to make the most of their time in the office together.

Providing ergonomic equipment will increase the comfort and productivity of your staff. It will also impact their physical health, which not only benefits your staff but also improves attendance, making your business more profitable.

Staff also require private office space to complete specific tasks. Some people prefer a quieter room to work away from distractions. Think about providing private space for staff or client meetings that are either face-to-face or virtual. Space should be made available for meetings to be conducted with privacy and without disturbing the rest of the office.

When planning modular office space, you can encourage people back into the office with careful design. If you provide your employees with flexible space for teamwork and private sessions, this will ensure their time is valued. Also, think about making sure that communal spaces like kitchens are kept away from quiet areas to avoid disruption.

  • Flexible working

As we have seen, many employees are working either flexible hours, hybrid patterns or completely remote. A lot of businesses have seen the benefits of allowing employees to work differently. However, this means the way you plan the office may need to change to allow for different working styles.

By speaking to a modular building contractor, they can help you make the most of the configuration of your new premises.

A new modular office

Modular buildings mean no compromise.

A high level of quality is at the heart of any modular office build. So, businesses can be assured of a working environment that is not only comfortable but hard-wearing and long-lasting too.

Modular buildings are manufactured in a factory setting, which allows for tighter quality control. Every part of the process is monitored to ensure that every component is of the highest standard.

When you are planning a modular building development, you have complete control. Modular buildings are flexible, cost-efficient and can be installed faster than a traditional construction.

A modular office can also work seamlessly with your current premises, giving you more choice. If you need to expand your current office space, you can either create a separate building on your site or create a modular extension to your existing structure.
