Office Pod FAQs:

What are the dimensions of the OfficePod?

OfficePods have a standard 8’ x 13’ footprint and come in two separate heights depending on what you are after, what your site allows and what your budget is. The Internal (for decorating) and the External (for site locating) dimensions are as follows:

Exterior OfficePod 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

Interior OfficePod Dimensions:
7’(84”)W x 11’(132”)L x 7’(84”)H
7’(84”)W x 11’(132”)L x 8’(96”)H

How does this all work?

We limit our production runs to two per year, Spring (March) and Summer (July). Depending on when you would like to see your OfficePod arrive at your site, sign off must be complete prior to the cut-off date for each run.

How fast can you build me an OfficePod?

Your delivery date will be determined on the date of sign off.  The ‘next available’ production run will then determine when you will receive your new OfficePod

  Sign-off complete by: Expected delivery date:
SPRING RUN  15th January 15th May
SUMMER RUN 15th May 15th September
What are the requirements for my site?

You will need enough space to accommodate your OfficePods 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 component of our initial site assessment.
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 levelling can be easily achieved.

Are OfficePods inspected and certified?

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

Can I customize my OfficePod?

Yes! Customization is available upon request. This will require a short design phase initially to determine what you are after. This design work is typically billed on a time and materials basis as per our current schedule of rates, which will be signed off before we get started. No deposit is required for this.

Once the design phase is complete and we finalize what you are after, we will provide a full quotation free of charge.

Can I heat/cool my unit?

Yes! We offer a both baseboard AND wall mounted convection heater upgrade options for your officepod.

Alternatively, there are a range of options which are easy to plug in after the fact, depending on your 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 the OfficePod space year round. https://www.dysoncanada.ca/en/fans-and-heaters/hot-cool.

If more air conditioning capacity is required for your use, feel free to ask us about running a separate power source in order to install a small mini split on the exterior of the unit.

How does payment work?

OfficePods: A 60% deposit will be required at quotation sign off and 40% final payment prior to shipping. 

Custom design work: All time and materials billing for custom design work is invoiced separately on a bi-weekly cycle.
