To minimize distractions from the noise and activity associated with many operations, PortaFab's modular offices are often used to create control rooms that provide sound and environmental control for both employees and sensitive equipment. With a variety of material and construction options, control rooms can be designed to fit nearly any space and withstand even the most rugged environments.
Control rooms are often built quickly and inexpensively by utilizing components from our "Quick-Ship" program. However, they can also be custom configured to one's exact needs featuring two-story models, special wall colors or materials and a wide variety of window options.
Regardless of which option one chooses, PortaFab modular control rooms can be assembled on-site quickly, cleanly and with minimal disruption to the rest of the facility. Plus, they be reconfigured and relocated as needs change within a facility.
Elevated Control Rooms
Since control rooms are often placed above floor level, we will often integrate a structural mezzanine or use our load-bearing OmniFlex stud system to create a two-story building as shown above.
Complete Utilization of Vertical Space
PortaFab's modular control rooms pair perfectly with mezzanines to create two-story control rooms. These elevated rooms provide an enhanced field-of-view that allow your supervisors to oversee and easily manage floor operations.
Additionally, the space beneath the control rooms can be utilized for a variety of different applications which allows your operations to fully capitalize on the space within your facility.
