Designing a conventional space, whether an office or factory floor, requires detailed architectural renderings of even the most minute features. Everything must be specified in excruciating detail and that takes time; time that drives up the cost of designing or redesigning space. Standardized modular wall components eliminate the need for time-consuming individual design exercises.
Save Money – Pre-engineered components mean the need for expensive architectural renderings is greatly reduced. The structural details have already been determined and the cost of this design work spread out over the fabrication of many sections. Essentially it’s taking the assembly line thesis used to keep the price of individual building components low and applying it to composite features. The end result is that you receive a finished design at a greatly reduced price.
Save Time – Since the particulars of modular design have been standardized the process of realizing an overall design for your office or industrial concern can focus instead on large scale considerations rather than getting bogged down in details. This drastically reduces the amount of time required to deliver the final design to you.
Achieve Consistent Results – Different contractors reading the same blueprints will often produce slightly different looking finished products. Standardizing the details of modular wall design and construction not only reduces the time required to realize a large scale design it also guarantees that the quality of the finished product will be consistent from component to component.
The Bottom Line – Modular wall systems are an environmentally responsible value proposition that begins with reduced design time and extends throughout fabrication, deployment and, ultimately, reuse. While assessing the cost-effectiveness of individual components of that value proposition may be helpful in understanding its inner workings it’s important not to lose sight of the fact that, when it comes to modular wall systems, the whole exceeds the sum of those individual parts.
