In warehousing and manufacturing environments, demands often change. As business grows, you may need to move things around to accommodate that growth. Flexibility and scalability are key. 

Portable in-plant offices and demountable wall assemblies are great options for companies looking for a flexible and efficient working environment for production and management personnel.

Mississauga, Ont.-based Excess Space Solutions (ESS) provides durable in-plant offices that are virtually maintenance free. Interior walls are finished with a vinyl covered gypsum panel and can be easily wiped down with a damp cloth, while the exterior is a highly corrosion resistant, prepainted galvalume steel siding. 

ESS specializes in custom designs and will assist customers in developing the best layout to suit their specific needs. And the factory-assembled design allows the office to be shipped complete and ready for immediate occupancy upon connection to existing site services.

The company also designs and manufactures the ESS 100+ wall assembly for office and manufacturing plant requirements.

“You will enjoy the quality of a permanent office, yet have the flexibility to reconfigure or relocate at any time,” the company says, adding that the high quality of the ESS 100+ wall assembly product allows it to be used in many industrial, commercial and mercantile applications. 

The wall assembly is designed to meet non-combustible building code requirements as a standard. When there is a need to reconfigure or relocate, the system is 90 to 100 per cent reusable, thanks to the environmentally conscious manufacturer’s goal to create minimal waste. 

Assembly of the ESS 100+ wall system is fast and efficient. It is pre-packaged and shipped in kit form, ready for installation by maintenance department personnel or the ESS installation team. 

If space is an issue, structural steel mezzanines may be the answer. These solutions turn unused overhead space into additional storage, office or manufacturing space.

These are just a few options that will help companies create a flexible and scalable environment, so that when changes are needed, the impact to the company is minimal.
