In-Plant Modular Office & Structural Mezzanine Installed by KABTech, Modular Office Supplier
KABTech was approached, through our modular warehouse office supply partners at PanelBuilt Modular Buildings & Mezzanines, to implement a two-story modular in-plant office in a local heavy equipment manufacturing facility, just north of us in Winston Salem, NC. We had three weeks to meet expectations for our clients, and you can be sure the KABTech team was up to the task.
So what made supplying and installing this project so challenging? Well, for starters, this modular office project featured 12’ high wall panels on the first and second floor. On the first floor, we needed to build and coordinate an internal structural steel mezzanine to support the second floor, which would ultimately feature open space for modular office cubicles.
We needed this mezzanine to allow for maximum clear space, because the plan was to integrate a four-room office and conference room, with an open cubicle area in the middle.
All in all, the first-floor modular office would expand to over 2,500 square feet in space. The walled rooms were for managers and the cubicle, office space area. Modular conference rooms were added to allow for meetings, support team discussions, etc.
When you are supplying and installing an in-plant office of this magnitude, structural support is critical. KABTech supplied an industrial steel mezzanine which we designed and put in place with bar joist and minimal columns to allow for maximum clear space.
This simple but effective structure ensure the support of all second-floor, modular office requirements.
We supplied four structural steel columns to support the upper portion of the second floor. The building included an external and internal staircase. The internal staircase allowed the employees to meet and discuss projects without having to leave the enclosure and take the stairs to a different level.
What about that second floor? As indicated previous, we planned on setting this section up as open, uninhibited, office space for modular office cubicles. This was to allow for maximum use of office space for the office staff.
KABTech supplied the requirements for needed modular office cubicles. This made it possible to situate the office team efficiently in a manner that would not be possible if each person had a dedicated office.
KABTech’s second-floor modular office design worked well to support the roof decking and an acoustical ceiling grid along with the HVAC system, sprinklers, electrical, and data storage requirements.
KABTech worked side by side with our client to ensure everything would be delivered to our customer and then installed within a three week period.
