Year End Tax Deductions, Great Lease Options

Section 179, A Way To Reduce Your Tax Liability

Section 179 is a federal income tax provision that allows small businesses to deduct the full 100% value of their capital asset purchases in the year of acquisition. The great thing about a lease purchase is you qualify for the full deduction,  even if you haven't paid the full value of the asset yet!

The Section 179 deduction is available for both new and used equipment and can allow you to write off the full value of acquired asset(s) even if you used leasing or financing to make the acquisition.  


Modular Solutions, Ltd has been working with companies like LEASE SMART  to find great lease and lease purchase programs for new and used modular buildings.   

The 2016 limit for your Section 179 deduction is $500,000, and it's important to have the equipment delivered and working before the end of the tax year, to qualify for the 2016 exemption.  Check with your income tax adviser and ask whether Section 179 is right for you.

Need An IT Room In Your New Modular Building, Read These Five Great Tips

How To Design Your IT Room, Five Great Tips


Almost every new modular building being constructed for traditional office space use has an IT room included.  Over the years we have seen the evolution of this crucial space.   Some manufacturers would just build a closet causing overheating, some manufacturers put in a large AC drop causing the AC units to freeze up or over cycle. 

When you are depending on technology to run so many aspects of your business, how much would it cost you if your communication or data systems are down?

Here are a few tips to look at when you are designing your new modular building. 

1.  Size the room based on the amount of equipment you will have in your facility.  Over sizing or undersizing a room can cause issues with the operations of your system.

2.  Do not use the space for "storage" of other things.  Frequently we will see designated IT rooms become storage for office and cleaning supplies or spare parts.  Keep the IT room clean and free of clutter.  If you need storage, design in additional storage rooms.

3.  Static resistant flooring is the recommendation.

  Use wood, laminate, tile, or some other easy maintenance non-static material for the floor covering in the IT room.

4.  If you are not using a professional rack in the IT room, then make sure your include a backer board that is coated with a fire restive material.  Some clients will even make the entire room a one hour fire rated room.

5.  We recommend IT rooms have a mini-split system with a ductless cooling unit dedicated to that room.  
In the event there are thermostat wars in the office spaces your IT room will remain cool and consistent based on the temperature setting you and your team select.  Large data rooms can exhaust through the floor or crawl space if you design your facility using a professional team.

Modular Buildings In Snow Country

Tips On How To Build A Great Modular Building In Snow Country


It is that time of year when everyone starts to pull out their ski jackets and plan for the winter storms and cold weather.  
There is a misconception that prefabricated or modular buildings can not be constructed to hold up to harsh winter conditions.   When you have a great design team you are able to get a modular building that will keep you acclimated in the worst weather conditions. 
Listed below are a few tips for consideration when planning a new modular building that will be placed in an extremely cold climate:

  • Insulation:  Continuous insulation, with high R factors will allow the building envelope to keep your inside temperatures warmer and hold the heat in.
  • Roof snow load:  Roof snow load in modular buildings are frequently at #60 or #80 roof snow load.  Talk to your design professional and make sure your design will accommodate the heavy snow season
  • Mechanical Systems:  Some clients are misinformed and think that they can only get those wall hung mechanical units that only have 9EER rating and use ALOT of electricity in the winter months.  This is an archaic concept.  Our modular buildings today have been equipped with VRF, Geothermal, Mini-splits, Package Units with high efficiency or gas heat.  You will want to take your time and explore all the options, life cycle, and operational costs of the various systems out there and make an educated and informed decision.
  • Exposure:  Site placement of your building using best practices for sun and wind exposure will help with overall cost management of heating and cooling costs.
  • Crawl space or slab:  There are advantages and disadvantages to both, talk through the options with your design professional to get the best solution for your site.

Modular Buildings Reimagined

100% Recycle, With Re-imagined Modular Buildings


We are frequently asked "What is the life cycle of that modular building?"  Our answer is easy to stand behind and that is equal to or longer than any site built structure with the same specification.

Some structures have been on a site for 20 years, and it is time to re-imagine the building.   The bones or structural elements of the building remain in great shape and only the aesthetic finishes need an improvement.  
 

The great thing about a modular structure is that you can renovate it in place or you can take it back to the factory for a complete rebuild.  When faced with throwing 20,000 lbs per section into a community landfill or spending some money to revitalize a community which is the better option?

Take a look at some of our re-imagined modular buildings and you decide.

Modern Design Finishes In Modular Construction

Don't Settle For Siding, On Your Modular Building


Today there are so many choices and options available in commercial construction why would you settle for "siding".  While this is main stream in the modular industry, and holds up pretty well in the long run, there are some other great options that will give you a fresh and modern approach to your finished commercial modular building.

Stone, Stucco, Steel:  A great Combination
Many of our clients will choose a combination of natural and man made elements to see a cohesion of design and artistic embellishment. 

What better way to show your community you care about how you blend in, and will contribute to the overall well being of the community by being invested.
