The ideal solution for Day 1 and beyond.

If you want to ensure that your office is smart, cost-effective, and a place where your team truly thrives, office phone booths and modular meeting rooms may be your answer.

The open office is broken. Constant noise and insufficient meeting space lead to lost productivity, creativity, and job satisfaction, as well as higher stress levels.

Don’t forget meeting room congestion.

A 2019 study conducted by ROOM and Density found that conference rooms were occupied nearly 40% of the time by a single person using it as their private office. Adding pre-fab phone booths dramatically reduced congestion.

3 reasons why you should choose pre-fab booths
Compared to constructing your own, pre-fab booths are the wiser choice, for both Day 1 and Day 2 planning.

ROOM delivers an affordable solution to open office noise.
Pre-fab booths and rooms are becoming the industry standard. A key reason: They are affordable—just $3,895 for a ROOM phone booth or upwards of $8,000 to $10,000 from the competition. In addition, meeting rooms for small group meetings are $14,000 all-in, compared to $17,000 or more with add-ons.

You pay more when you build from scratch.
You can build a custom booth to fit your brand or a specific space, shape or size. But it can be costly. Expect to pay at least $10,000 for a basic, single-person phone booth and up to $40,000 for a more elaborate small room. You may deal with as many as seven contractors—including framing, drywall, electrical and more—and they will parade in and out of your office creating unnecessary distractions and upheaving teams.

Click. Deliver. Assemble. Done.
Order a pre-fab room online, receive it within a few weeks, and your own team can get to work in just a few hours courtesy of plug & play installation. Immediately, your team will find the needed privacy and quiet to do their best work. A recent study by ROOM found that a new phone booth integrated into an office space was used by employees 59 hours—or 246 times—in just two weeks.

DIY takes a lot of time.
You may spend two to six weeks of your own time and resources to design and build a single booth, and two months for a built-in meeting room. (Time that could be better spent running and growing your business.)

A DIY room would likely require:

  • Permits, landlord permissions and working with contractors.
  • Consultation with an architectural engineer and building manager to ensure safety.
  • Commissioning 3D models and professional design of AC, electrical wires, sprinkler systems, soundproofing material, and air ventilation.
  • Hiring a lawyer to contractually protect what a contractor does — or does not do — inside your office
  • Final sign offs from a licensed electrician, fire marshal, and building inspector.

ROOM pre-fab products are portable.
You can easily move them for use in various places throughout your office—or to an entirely new location. That’s great for teams that are constantly reorganizing in pods, wings or floors. And, just like your office furniture, you get to take your rooms with you when you move out, or wherever you go next.

Constructed DIY rooms stay with the office.
Built-in rooms can’t be moved, and do not adjust for a changing workforce. If you lease your space and move out, your investment—and the room —stays with the landlord. ROOM booths and meeting rooms allow for private space to move with you, maximizing your investment.
