With the site office in mind, you have to see this alternative in two ways – as a short and long term solution to office problems. Short term covers those projects that only lasts a month or two and the trailer will only be needed for such a short duration. Long term refers to major projects that take years to completion. It doesn’t matter whether you need it in just a month or a year, an office in the project location can guarantee that your work will be a lot easier. Since construction zones are just temporary, trailer offices are good options. If you decided to procure one, it will be delivered straight to the construction site where it will be located and it will be set up according to your preference. As soon as the project is done in a certain construction site, the trailer can be arranged to be moved or returned back by the same company that delivered.
For project managers and contractors, trailer offices are very practical because it is affordable and serves as a solution to the most challenging situation in the site office. Since every work requires a different specification, a trailer is a good choice since it can be easily customized according to requirement to meet the need of the project. For projects that can be done in a short term, the trailer will serve as a space where meetings can be held with the inspectors, subcontractors, officials and the workers and it is a noise-free space where calls may be taken without the construction noise in the background. Basic office needs such as a desk and chairs is enough for this purpose.
For trailers to be used in long term the requirements may be more than the basic set up and it can be easily arranged. It is best if the site trailer to be used is larger or has a two-story type.
