calendar icon January 8, 2020

You are ready to set up shop for your business, and you’ve decided to get the job done with modular buildings. Smart choice if you’re looking for a cost effective and fast construction option.

There’s just one question: How big should your building be?

The reality is, you don’t want to pay for more space than you need for your business. At the same time, you don’t want to end up with too small of a space for your current and potential future needs.

Fortunately, we’ve compiled a guide on how to buy the perfect size modular commercial buildings.

Let’s jump in!

Office Space Sizes for Executives

To determine how large of a commercial space you need for your entire business, you’ll need to first figure out how large each individual office or work space in the building needs to be.

As a general rule of thumb, you should shoot for a 200- to 400-square foot office of the chief executive officer/ president. Meanwhile, try to create a 150- to 250-square foot vice president’s office.

Also, you may want to produce 90- to 150-square foot offices for your other managers.

Office Space Sizes for Non-Managers

Employees who are not managers usually work in cubicles that are semi-private. Alternatively, they can work in larger spaces featuring open floor plans.

If employees in your industry require privacy, then cubicles are a wise way to go. It’s a good idea to create enough space in your modular commercial building to accommodate the right number of 48-square-foot cubicles for your workers.

Also, if you need an open space for your workers, be sure to allot a 60- to 110-square foot space for each person.

Extra Spaces

Be sure to also calculate extra space for your modular commercial building’s common areas.

For instance, you can make a 100-square-foot reception area that also includes a 10-square-foot space for each waiting client. Also, shoot for a 50-square-foot conference room that additionally includes a 20- to 25-square-foot space for each seat.

You can also create space for a 120-square-foot break room as well as a 125- to 300-square-foot file room.

In addition, plan for a restroom with a 55-square-foot stall along with a 30-square-foot second stall.

Finally, be sure to add between 20% and 30% of the building’s total space to be sure that you have enough room for corridors and hallways.
