A recycling facility in Conover, North Carolina required KABTech’s help with renovating their workplace and installing a temperature controlled office for their employees. The customer wanted to revamp their facility to provide their control operators with a more comfortable work environment. After evaluating the needs of the recycling facility, KABTech proposed an in-plant modular office to be built on top of a steel mezzanine.


Project Installation:

KABTech was able to cut the project’s standard installation time in half to better accommodate the recycling facility. The installation of their in-plant office took just a day to complete and did not disrupt the plant’s production lines. KABTech started the project by building a custom configured in-plant office with sound-proof windows, champagne colored panels, and vinyl covered gypsum for a visually appealing and practical look. The office also attained a class “A” fire rating, and the walls were set up to prevent exterior noises from disturbing the employees in the room. To keep the in-plant modular office clean, KABTech installed roof deck gaskets with sound and dust protection. KABTech also installed a PTAC unit, which created a comfortable environment for the control operators by providing air filtration and circulation around the room.

The mezzanine system was built to provide stability and flexibility to the in-plant office while expanding the useable floor space in the facility. The extra space will be necessary for the recycling facility moving forward as they continue to grow their business and expand their operations. Additionally, building the modular office on top of the steel mezzanine provides the plant manager with a widespread view of the production floor, which allows him better to supervise employees, inventory, controls, and essential equipment. Once the mezzanine was set up, all that was left of the project was hooking up the electricity. With a little help from the recycling facility’s electrician, the power was up and running, and all of the operation controls were mounted.


End Result

The recycling facility was very satisfied with the result of the project, and they were excited to make use of their new in-plant modular office. They now have a clean and comfortable area for control operators to work, with a clear view of the recycling process. KABTech was able to configure the modular building to meet the customer’s exact needs and executed a quick installation process to avoid disrupting work productivity. Overall we were happy to provide another customer with an improved workspace! For more information on KABTech industrial interior solutions, please contact us today.
