The proportion of people working from home in the past year has grown tremendously. Compared to 2019, the number of people who, since March 2020, have had to work from home has doubled to 8.4 million. Are you one of them?
Unfortunately, the idea of working from home was sprung on the UK population quite quickly, so many of us didn’t have time to create the perfect working space; instead, the kitchen table had to suffice. Many studies have been conducted to determine whether working from home is actually beneficial to businesses and have revealed that people who work from home are on average 47% more productive – does this mean working from home is here to stay when the pandemic eventually bids us farewell? There have also been studies to show that working from home can mean a better work-life balance with more flexibility thanks to modern technology. Working from home can reduce the daily stressful commute, can give you longer in bed before the alarm goes off and can make you feel more in control of your day.
What if we said our large building blocks could help with your working from home set up? Creating a modern space within your home and meaning you can keep that spare bedroom for guests and not have to turn it into a home office after all. Luckily for you, our modular building system can be used to create temporary partition walls so you can get the privacy you have been waiting for since March 2020. With our sustainable building materials, you could transform your garage, spare room or even basement into a suitable working environment. And the best part is that if you change your mind and prefer to go back to working from the office, they can be easily taken down and stored for alternative use.
Adapting Indoor Spaces
For some, working from home may be a temporary plan so a permanent fix such as an extension may seem pointless. By using our blocks as a temporary wall, you could have a quick fix to divide a room or workspace without the need for planning permission or costly workmen. The beauty of our modular building system is that they can be assembled by anyone with or without construction experience. In addition, when you purchase a bespoke design from us you will be allocated an account manager that will assist you every step of the way with the build process. Our large building blocks can be flat packed, stored and re-imagined as other structures when the need for a home office is no more.
Extending Into The Garden
For those looking for a more permanent solution, our blocks are still the ideal fit. The cost of house extensions and garden rooms are increasing each month with a single-story extension now looking to set homeowners back upward of a thousand pounds per square foot. Our sustainable building materials can act as bricks as they are durable and water resistant. Each QUICKBLOCK® can be filled with materials such as soil, sand, or other type one hardcore materials to enforce additional stability, strength, and insulation.
Manufactured from 100% recycled polypropylene, our blocks have similar properties to conventional building materials with the added benefit of being eco-friendly. Our innovative modular building system starts with each block being made up of hinged joints in the corners that are reinforced with a pin to secure the block structure. Once the blocks are assembled, they can be simply interlocked together using our unique stacking system.
