In the working world, modular buildings are widely used, typically serving as worksite offices. This is true for many industries. In the industrial sector, the applications of modular buildings are extensive. Industrial worksites often require dedicated spaces for operations such as handling hazardous material. With modular construction, these dedicated spaces are provided quickly, efficiently, and cost effectively.
Some of the unique requirements of industrial work zones and how industrial modular buildings meet these needs is discussed below.
A “clean room” is a designated area that maintains a very low level of microscopic pollutants like dust or aerosol products. These rooms are ideal for conducting work that would otherwise be compromised by airborne particles. For example, in the engineering of medical devices, accumulation of dust can negatively affect properties such as conductivity.
Clean rooms require specific air flow distribution to operate properly. With modular construction, cleanrooms can be constructed with little to no effect on the surrounding building; i.e., cleanrooms can be conveniently situated within a larger building without the need to adjust the airflow throughout.
The typical purpose of environmental enclosures is improved control over factors like humidity and temperature levels in the room. An environmental enclosure may also be used to contain by-products of processes (e.g., paint fumes) within a designated area.
The applications of environmental enclosures include pharmaceutical packaging, housing sensitive calibration equipment, processing of petrochemicals, etc.
As with cleanrooms, modular environmental enclosures allow industries improved control over the critical elements of the room.
Soundproof rooms come in handy in industries where very loud noises are common, e.g., construction. Modular industrial building is particularly convenient for industries that require soundproof rooms. If noise levels are disrupting processes in a certain location, modular rooms can be constructed or relocated within the building to combat the issue quickly.
Modular control rooms just make sense. The location of the control room relative to other rooms is important, especially if visual monitoring is required. With modular construction, the placement and size of control rooms is easily adaptable to changing/growing company demands.
Summary of Benefits of Industrial Modular Buildings
Modular construction allows a level of flexibility that traditional construction does not offer. As companies experience growth, modular rooms/buildings are much easier to move, expand, or reduce in size, at a much lower price! Modular installation also reduces the disruption to work processes occurring near the installation site. Particularly important in the industrial setting, modular rooms can be constructed to have unique properties compared to the surrounding building, e.g., airflow distribution.
