Modular Offices


When changes in your business create new demands for modular office space, Inplant modular office buildings provide you with unlimited flexibility to meet your current and future demands. Custom Equipment Company carries a large selection of modular buildings from Inplant Modular Office.

Modular Offices



    Custom Equipment Company offers a wide variety of modular office buildings from a single user office to a two story multiple office. Inplant modular office solutions are manufactured to fit each unique application and install in a fraction of the time of conventional construction. We offer a wide variety of materials, finishes and colors that allow our customers the freedom to design office systems that meet their specific needs and their personal style.  All of Inplant wall systems feature non-progressive design, which means any panel can be removed without having to disturb the adjacent panels.

Starting with the initial design stage we can work within your space constraints and around your obstructions down to the fraction of an inch. Not only do our wall systems install quick and easy but they can be relocated or reconfigured as your requirements evolve. The wiring posts are located at each 4' panel junction and have wiring chases with removable cover plates for easy access, except corner post.

    modular offices 3" Heavy Duty Steel System   Best Selling Made from 20 or 16 gauge steel, it is the ideal system not just for load bearing applications, but for rooms requiring more insulation and sound attenuation. The wiring posts have friction fit cover plates on both sides for access to data and/or electrical wiring on the interior and exterior of each same post.

Wall system consists of a galvanealed floor track anchored to the existing slab. Installed into this are all the vertical elements: The wiring posts, corner posts, and panels with doors or windows. Painted ceiling cap secures all the vertical elements and provides a solid mounting surface for the corrugated decking. The 22ga decking provides the load capacity to support a 2x4 grid ceiling and can be supplemented with I-beams for load capacities up to 125# PSF. Modular offices are installed in a fraction of the time and without the dust and clutter when compared with conventional construction.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
    1) What are the benefits of going modular?
    Our products install cleaner and faster which equals less mess and less downtime compared with stick-built construction. Inplant wall systems are non-progressive in design so, once assembled, any panel section can be removed, replaced, or changed to a window or door with ease. Modular construction is also open construction which allows building inspectors to check the structure and wiring at any point of the install process. Modular construction also qualifies for Accelerated Depreciation through IRS §179 which saves some cost on the backend.
    2) Are there standard sizes?
    No. We price walls by the linear foot and deck/ceiling by the square foot. That being said, multiples of 4 (12x12, 12x16, etc.) are best for flexibility.
    3) Can I store anything on the roof?
    We can provide an integral load bearing roof up to 125# PSF in both 1-3/4" and 3" systems. Beyond that our products integrate easily with mezzanines as well.
    4) How does the electrical work?
    We typically furnish 4-bulb T8 lighting with wall switches, duplex outlets, and a load center. Wiring or conduit are by others unless we provide modular wiring. Outlets and light switches are mounted in our wiring studs and once above the ceiling line the wires can be run back to the load center. We provide cover plates to conceal the wiring in the studs. Wiring lights is no different from conventional construction. Our modular wiring consists of snap together connections with MC Cable to link all the prewired lights and outlets back to a junction box in the ceiling near the load center. An electrician would bring power to the load center and extend wiring up to the junction box (es).
    5) What about HVAC?
    For most applications we use self-contained HVAC wall units which plug into adjacent dedicated outlets. For larger projects we can easily provide the extra plenum space for central air ductwork.
    6) What about flooring?
    A finished floor is not integral to the structure so any flooring options are available and can be installed after the fact. Two story structures are quoted with vinyl tile as the standard finished flooring for the upper level but carpet could easily be used instead.
    7) What are the color choices?
    Aluminum wall systems are anodized while steel is painted. Our vinyl covered panels come in three colors. FRP has few more options beyond that. Painted steel or gypsum can be painted any color. Steel wall systems are painted to match the panels and aluminum walls systems are all satin anodized.
    8) Do I need to pull permits?
    Every jurisdiction operates differently in regards to code compliance and enforcement. If permits are required we can provide stamped engineered drawings for an additional cost.
    9) What is the lead time?
    After we receive a purchase order we send out approval drawings which usually take a few days. After the drawings are approved our lead time is typically 3-5 weeks.
    10) How do these ship?
    A knocked down project is packed around the size of the panels so an 8 foot tall room would arrive on 4x8 skids, 9 foot tall is 4x9 etc. and arrive preferably in an enclosed trailer. A fork truck with a 3000 lbs. capacity and extended forks is required. Our factory assembled booths ship assembled on a steel base with fork pockets. All of our products ship CLASS 70.
