Can a Modular Building Be Two Stories Tall?

Ever wondered about a two stories tall modular building?

by Matt Banes

Ever wonder if you can buy or rent a two story modular building or school? The answer is yes and several suppliers of modular buildings specialize in manufacturing, delivering and installing these specialized structures for businesses, medical facilities, schools and universities.

The concept of two and three story modular construction has been around for decades and the benefits are the same as single story modular building - time and money savings with design flexibility. Multistory modular structures are designed by architects and engineers to meet the specific needs of the building occupants and to adhere to the same stringent building codes any conventionally built structure would be required to meet.

How quickly can I get a modular office trailer set up and ready for occupancy?

This is a really popular question when a company is in need of a temporary modular office trailer quickly and the answer depends on several factors such as when you need the space, how much space you need and where it will be installed.

When? If you need a modular office trailer quickly you are in luck because suppliers typically have modulars ready for delivery and installation. Just don’t be picky – be flexible with the floor plan and finishes and takes what’s available immediately. The more you change the longer delivery will take.

How much space? Modular building suppliers can deliver modular trailer offices and classrooms quickly but the more space you need the longer the process takes. Single, double and even triple module buildings can be delivered and installed in a few days – maybe less if all of the resources are available. Once you start adding more modules more resources (trucks, manpower, tools) are required to deliver, install and finish the structure. Keep in mind that each module needs to be set on a foundation, interconnected, closed up, weatherized and then finished inside and out. After connections are done utilities and access steps and/or a handicap ramp need to be installed. No matter how much space you need using a modular building is much faster than any other option.

Location? The best and fastest place to install a modular building is on a level site that has very few obstacles for delivery trucks and the installation crew to work around. The rule of thumb is “easy in- easy out” and when you deviate from this the time and costs almost always increase.

Get started! Now that you are ready to find the right modular and place your order try using this helpful way of getting 3 prices from local modular building suppliers.
