Office Pod FAQs:

What are the dimensions of the Office Pod?

Office Pods have a standard 8’ x 13’ footprint and come in two separate heights. The Internal (for decorating) and the External (for site locating) dimensions are as follows:

Exterior Office Pod Dimensions:

8’(96”)W x 13’(156”)L x 8’6”(102”)H
8’(96”)W x 13’(156”)L x 9’6”(114”)H

7’2”(86”)W x 11’4(136”)L x 8’4”(100”)H

How does this all work?

In order to maintain our quality and reliability standards, we limit our Pod production runs to just three per year, Spring, Summer and Fall. Depending on when you would like to see your Office Pod arrive at your site, sign off must be complete prior to the cut-off deadline for each run.

Sign-off Deadline (Complete by): Delivery date                 (Expected):
SPRING RUN  10th January 30th April
SUMMER RUN 30th April 31st August
FALL RUN 30th June 30th October
When can I get my pod delivered?

Your ‘Delivery’ date will depend completely on the date you complete ‘Sign Off’ and pay your 40% deposit (5 simple steps). This chart sums it up: 

Sign-Off Deadline  (Complete by): Delivery date                  (Expected):
SPRING RUN  10th January 30th April
SUMMER RUN 30th April 31st August
FALL RUN 30th June 30th October

*The 5 simple steps to complete ‘Sign Off’ include:

  1. Get a Quote (FREE)
  2. Accept Quote & Pay your $500 Retainer
  3. Review your Shop Drawings (via email)
  4. Attend your Design Meeting (in person)
  5. Sign off on Final Design, Contract & Pay your 40% Deposit  
What is ‘Sign Off’ and how long does it take to achieve?

By definition, ‘Sign-Off’ is achieved by you completing 5 simple steps:

  1. Get a Quote (FREE)
  2. Accept Quote & Pay your $500 Retainer
  3. Review your Shop Drawings (via email)
  4. Attend your Design Meeting (in person)
  5. Sign off on Final Design, Contract & Pay your 40% Deposit  

This whole process typically takes between 1-3 weeks depending on how motivated you are and how busy our team is. The longest part of the process is the production of your personalized shop drawings.

Once these 5 steps are complete and we have confirmed your delivery date for you, there is nothing further for you to do other than sit back and relax while you wait for delivery day to roll around.

Is there a winter production run?

In order to maintain our exceedingly high standards in both quality of product AND customer service, we typically spend the winter months working in the field, checking in and taking care of current client needs under our complementary Customer Care Package program. which comes standard with every new Office Pod purchase. Feel free to inquire and ask us about this service.

What is your Customer Care package?

We see all our Clients as family, and as such, we will look after any issues or concerns they may have well beyond the initial excitement of purchasing an Office Pod unit from us. Our Customer Care package consists of an annual complementary inquiry with every one of our clients to make sure they are still 100% happy and super stoked with their Office Pod purchase. We prefer to do this in person, but will also reach out via good old fashioned phone call if necessary. Email and Zoom are alternate options, but only as a last resort when time and/or geography make them necessary. 



What are the requirements for my site?

You will need enough space to accommodate your Office Pod’s exterior dimensions AND adequate site access. 

We have a few magicians on our team with the ability to get these units into some incredible spots using a variety of different options. This makes the possibility of us finding a way for you extremely favourable! 

Site access is generally the main item we need to confirm for you prior to you moving ahead with a deposit.

Power requirements consist of a simple extension cord long enough to reach the unit from the nearest household plug. We recommend getting a licenced electrician to run a quick load calculation on both the lead and plug to be used, just to make sure they are adequate.

What site preparation is required?

A level, well compacted pad, free of organic matter is recommended. 

4x concrete patio pavers are a super easy and effective method of raising the base of the unit off the earth, where required.  

In most cases, ‘post drop’ shimming and leveling can be easily achieved 

Are Office Pods inspected and certified?

Yes. Each one of our Office Pods are individually inspected, tested and certified by electrical authorities right here on Vancouver Island. We take pride in what we do and build every Office Pod to perform well beyond ‘minimum standards’.

Can I customize my Office Pod?

Yes! Customization is available upon request. After rough ballpark numbers are discussed, this will take our standard $500 Retainer and commence a design phase initially to fine tune what you are after. Once the design phase is complete and we finalize what you are after, we will provide a full Sign Off package including contract, design and pricing for final review, signatures and payment of deposit.

Can I heat/cool my unit?
Absolutely! Our units are fully electrically certified and they come with a variety of heating options

  1. Baseboard Heater. This is the most cost effective, and common heating method. The small space doesn’t require much, and these little baseboard units are more than capable of doing the job without taking up too much room.
  2. Wall mounted Convection Heater. A great alternative to the baseboard heater, this unit sits on the wall, heats the space and brings just a touch more class that you traditional baseboard option. 
  3. Plug in Heater. There are also a range of options which are easy to plug in after the fact, depending on your intended use. We recommend The Dyson Hot + Cool Fan heater range (from your local Dyson dealer). These units do an amazing job of heating and cooling your OfficePod space year round. https://www.dysoncanada.ca/en/fans-and-heaters/hot-cool

Similarly, Air Conditioning of your unit can be achieved in two ways: 

  1. Window mount air conditioning unit. This is a cost effective way to air condition your pod and requires nothing more than a power source and an open window. 
  2. If you are after a more permanent solution, a mini split can easily be installed on the exterior of the unit and run through a wall to the fan unit on the inside. We recommend booking in a full inspection of this type of installation by one of our team members to insure that a quality installation is performed. Failure to do so will void all warranties associated with your unit. Simply contact us through the website to book an installation inspection for a minimal fee.
How does payment work?

Office Pod Sales: 

  1. A $500 Retainer Fee is taken prior to production of shop Drawings
  2. A 40% deposit will be required at sign off 
  3. 60% final payment will be required prior to unit delivery & Installation.

Rental Pods: 

  1. A Damage Deposit is invoiced and paid (typically around the CA$2000 mark) during contract sign off
  2. Your Invoice for the first months rent needs to be paid prior to Delivery and Installation.  
  3. Re-curring monthly invoicing will be sent for the term of your contract 
  4. Once the rental term is complete, we will pick up your unit and return it to our yard for inspection. Upon passing inspection for damage, and payment of all outstanding accounts, we will refund your original damage deposit within 30 days.
