Now more than ever before, businesses are leaning towards an open concept office space for a number of reasons. Particularly popular with smaller companies and startups, open concept workspaces can be found at businesses of all sizes as well. For the most part, office spaces that are already built are sectioned off into smaller rooms that are overall not conducive to an open office. When building your own workspace with a customized steel building, the possibilities are endless. As with any project, it’s important to have a clear vision of what you want your office space to look and feel like before you get started, so you pick the best kit and customization options for you. Luckily, prefab steel buildings are flexible and strong enough to be perfect for the job. While many of these kinds of office structures are made from concrete and might even include steel framing, there’s plenty of reasons why prefab steel structures are the best possible option to create the exact kind of open concept office you’re looking for. Here are just a few of them!
The most obvious reason why an Olympia prefab steel building is specifically the best option for your open concept office is the trussless design of all of our steel building kits. Thanks to the excellent strength-to-weight ratio of steel, our prefab buildings are much better able to hold themselves up without the need for support beams or columns leading up to trusses – features that would otherwise get in the way and affect how the structure is able to be laid out. Steel buildings are able to support themselves with just the strength of the side panels and walls, instead of needing extra reinforcements that usually end up placed right in the middle of the structure. Because our buildings are constructed this way, this gives you much more freedom in how the office furniture can be positioned and general layout can be.
Another great thing about steel buildings is just how quickly one can be put up. Due to the fact that the structure will arrive at your jobsite already partially constructed along with instructions to finish the job the rest of the way, this will help you open up your office much sooner rather than later. Whether it’s an office for a new venture or renovating for an existing business, chances are you’re going to want to start using your office as soon as possible. This is exactly why prefab steel buildings are perfect because you will save approximately ⅓ of the time it would take to complete a building project using more traditional building materials and methods, meaning you can start using your new open concept office space much faster.
The last great feature that makes steel buildings the perfect open office space is how durable they are! Steel is one of the strongest materials on the planet and this will be important for ensuring that your open office space stays in great shape for many years to come. While regular inspections are definitely recommended, steel’s strength and general resistance to things like extreme weather, pests and fire means you will need to repair your office structure much less frequently than with other building materials and methods.
