While outdoor events are fun, they necessitate specific infrastructure to run efficiently and safely. This is particularly true of outdoor construction projects and work sites, which require you to spend significant time outdoors building something out of nothing.
In these types of situations, it’s beneficial to have certain resources on the site to help everything run smoothly—but you may not have the time to think about coordinating these amenities when you’re focused on event planning or construction work. To make your life easier, we’ve put together a complete list of services you might need on your job site.
Nothing helps a worksite run more efficiently than a clean, well-maintained office space. A Mobile Office enables team leaders and foremen to conduct meetings, trainings, interviews, and any other business needs that can’t take place outdoors.
These types of units are customizable depending on your needs; they can be single or double-roomed if your project is small, or significantly larger for more intensive long-term projects. You also have the option of either buying or leasing a mobile office depending on how long your project is slated to last.
Benefits of Mobile Office Spaces
These units offer a reliable area to store and protect valuable equipment, rather than leaving it unattended outside. During inclement weather, workers can also congregate inside until the conditions are better to work outside again.
A Mobile Office space is also good for employee morale, as it can be used as a break room, giving workers a place to rest, eat, and relax. Mobile offices also offer a quiet place to hold meetings or trainings, as well as a secure location to store any blueprints or other important documents.
Mobile Offices are useful in a variety of different settings, such as construction, commercial or retail, sports areas, and schools. They also don’t need to be used only for office space—they can just as easily become utility buildings, tool sheds, additional warehouse storage, or a place to store extra equipment or supplies.
If an area like a school is being partially renovated, mobile office spaces are an excellent way to expand education space and prevent a disruption in daily life. These structures are beneficial on project sites that need to be left unattended, as any valuable equipment and documents can be safely stored.
These versatile trailers can also be used to transport materials and equipment between job sites—instead of needing to load and unload trucks or vans, you can easily bring your important equipment or documents wherever they’re needed, with very little disruption to your workflow. Mobile Office spaces are also an excellent organizational tool, minimizing clutter and increasing organization in areas that are being renovated.
While mobile offices offer a secure space to store equipment and valuables, sometimes you need a dedicated storage area for other belongings. Storage Containers are useful in any and all of the settings that mobile offices can be used in, and are available for purchase or rent. They offer an immense amount of customization options, making them ideal for a number of different situations.
These steel containers were originally designed for shipping, so they can withstand a significant amount of wear and tear. The contents of these containers are easy for users to access, and the containers offer different modification options depending on your needs. Lockboxes, shelving, roll-up storage doors, and HVAC climate control can all be added for extra security and to protect sensitive materials.
Since all projects are different, Storage Containers can be customized in various ways to suit every site. If you need a finished office area, containers can be outfitted with interior floors, walls, and ceilings—the latter two of which are constructed over R-13 insulation. These white, commercial materials offer a professional, attractive appearance.
Windows can also be installed in these Containers, and they too include a number of customization options. Storage Container windows are fully functional, with insect screens and mill finish aluminum frames. If desired, you can also add welded security bars.
If you require electricity, certain Containers with motion detector light switches can be installed in offices. These will enable lights to switch on when the container is in use and automatically turn off when the container is empty. Fluorescent ceiling lights are also available for installation.
Restrooms & Restroom Trailers
The safety and cleanliness of outdoor project sites depends heavily on easy access to restrooms. Clean and modern Portable Toilets and/or Restroom Trailers ensure that both workers and guests feel comfortable, hygienic and Remain on Site for longer periods of time.
Portable restrooms are necessary in a number of different venues, including:
- Construction & Residential Construction sites
- Remote worksites
- Park areas
- Special outdoor events
Restrooms are available both as standard models for Worksites and as designated models designed for Special Events.
Fences & Barricades
If you are holding an Outdoor Event, Temporary Fences and Barricades ensure a safe environment. These structures regulate the flow of traffic and prevent accidents and injuries by blocking off certain areas and showing people where to stand and walk.
Crowd Control Barricades are constructed from galvanized steel, making them incredibly tough and enabling them to withstand the wear and tear that large crowds and inclement weather can inflict. Despite their strength and durability, however, these structures are also lightweight, making it easy to move them from place to place as necessary.
Portable Barricades are also designed using a hook and sleeve system, making them ideal for use on longer routes; their length can be customized and adjusted based on your needs.
Temporary Barricades & Fence Panels are beneficial in a wide variety of situations. In large outdoor events such as festivals, these structures can be used to section off the event, creating specific areas for entrance and exit. This creates a clear festival area and makes it easier for organized security to operate.
For events along a designated route, such as parades or races, Barricades are an excellent way to section off an area. They show the participants their route and ensure that unauthorized members of the general public do not accidentally enter the path.
Temporary Fence Panels can also be used to create clear ticket lines for events. This creates a clear path where people can line up, which in turn makes the event more organized and the ticketing process quicker and easier. Temporary Fences can be used to create narrow, single file lines or slightly wider double lines; the process ends up running more smoothly when people know exactly where to go.
Barricades and Temporary Fence Panels can also be used for crowd control during large events like concerts. These structures can prevent accidents and injuries, directing the flow of foot traffic, and moving guests away from areas where they shouldn’t go.
For events such as outdoor flea markets or farmers markets, Temporary Barricades and Fence Panels can assist in organization by separating vendor lots in advance. This makes setup on market day significantly easier and quicker. These structures can also be used to increase market safety by blocking off vehicle traffic and directing market-goers.
Benefits of Temporary Fences & Barricades
In addition to the above event uses, Temporary Fences and Barricades are helpful in a number of outdoor worksites, including:
- Commercial & Residential construction
- Housing Development
- Post-disaster Reconstruction
- Public Works Projects & Political Rallies
- Tenant improvements
These structures are ideal for outdoor worksites since they are easy to install and reposition as needed, making them incredibly flexible. No digging is necessary for installation, further increasing the ease with which the Fences can be incorporated into a work site.
