Four Uses for Industrial Modular Buildings

Modular buildings are constructed off-site in sections, or modules, which are transported to and assembled at the installation site. They can be built for almost any purpose, from industrial and commercial to residential, and can be temporary, semi-permanent, or permanent. They can even be added to existing structures.

For modular buildings, you have the same design options as traditional construction, and the buildings are held to the same codes and regulations. In fact, they’re often more durable than buildings constructed on site because they are built to withstand transportation, as well.

Since modular construction happens in a controlled environment, you don’t have to worry about weather delays or damage during the building process. Your structure is completed more quickly at the same high quality standard you would expect with on-site construction. The controlled factory environment is also safer for the builders, especially if you need an addition to an existing facility like a chemical plant where there may be environmental hazards. 


Top Industrial Applications for Modular Buildings


Transporting tools, materials, and the builders adds to the cost of construction, especially when you’re working in a remote area. Temporary modular offices, storage, restrooms, kitchens, and even bunk houses allow you to save the money associated with transportation and make life a little easier for workers who would prefer to stay on site for part or all of the construction process. You can also set up modular sales offices in other areas. 


Modular in-plant offices are designed to be placed inside an existing structure. Adding one to your manufacturing facility gives you privacy and security for offices, restrooms, pump rooms, and control centers. 

Oil & Gas

Many oil plants require a fast build that simply isn’t possible on site. Using modular buildings speeds up the construction process on their facilities and allows the companies to get to work sooner. 

Chemical Processing

Modular construction reduces production interruptions and safety risks that could be introduced with on site construction. It’s also easier to keep a building schedule. Whether you’re expanding a facility or adding an in-plant office, lab, conference room, break room, storage, or anything else, modular buildings are a go-to solution. 

Modular Buildings From Commercial Structures

With industrial modular buildings, you have a wide array of options, from siding and flooring to layout and colors, and can design the perfect building for your needs. At Commercial Structures, we offer the following and more:

  • In-Plant Offices
  • Laboratories and Medical Facilities
  • Portable Guard Houses
  • Two-Story Buildings
  • Pump Houses and Equipment Buildings
  • Break Rooms, Locker Rooms, and Restrooms
  • Blast-Resistant Buildings
  • Modular Classrooms
  • Scale Houses and Dispatch Offices

We have a variety of prefab floor plans ready to go, but if you don’t see exactly what you need, we also offer custom projects. While modular construction is naturally eco-friendly because it produces less waste than a traditional construction site, we also offer specific eco-friendly solutions, from green building materials to energy conservation technology and LEED certification. 

For more than 40 years, our family-owned and operated company has been delivering high-quality modular buildings on time and at an affordable price for applications all over the world. We back up our work with attentive customer service and a no-risk guarantee, because we want you to be completely satisfied with the quality and functionality of your building.
