Adding an office to a warehouse or distribution center allows us to incorporate quality assurance, shipping and receiving or a foreman’s office right where the action is. Unfortunately, it is where the action is, so making the time and space for construction can often be difficult, particularly for stick-built enclosures. Pre-engineered offices go a long way to alleviating that problem, going up in a quarter of the time of permanent construction. In fact, modular construction can often be completed in a weekend. An additional advantage is that they are quickly and easily moved when your needs change.
Perhaps the greatest benefit in choosing pre-engineered offices is the tax savings involved when compared to stick-built. Because modular products are considered “tangible property” instead of “real property” like conventional construction, they are depreciated over 7 years instead of 39. This results in a tax savings of over $5,000 for cost-comparable buildings.
As you can see, there are many reasons to consider pre-engineered additions to your facility even without discussing any of the many ways that these additions can be customized. If you’re interested in learning more, please give us a call or send an email — DAK is always happy to help!
