Consider the average building or construction, or even a road or bridge maintenance project. The site has been established but ground has yet to be broken. There is going to be a procession of diggers, concrete mixers, steel people, electricians, plumbers, scaffolding builders and other services coming and going. All will have plans and all will have different jobs to do, at different times.
A site manager is going to be required to co ordinate this lot, he is going to need to be supported by planning and project management staff who all have functions supervising the work being done and seeing that completion is as per schedule and up to standard.
Any construction site, bigger than a single dwelling unit, needs an office on site, if for nothing else than a place to store the plans and to keep the project schedule. This is may be no bigger than a caravan, which in many small jobs is the case, but in a reasonable to big site an office complex with a minimum of 3 rooms is required, One for the plans and the projects schedule, one for the site or project manager to meet the site staff and the various contractors, to check wage records and the third one for the various contractors on site to locate themselves while on site.
Obviously it is also going to need a secure storage area because maybe construction materials such as bricks and cement may be kept in a yard there will still be a lot of items such as nuts, Bolts, Glass, tools and the like which will grow legs if not locked away.
In addition after the project advances it may become desirable to move the office from one location to another and, as the project winds up, to remove it completely and leave no trace of it ever having been there.
These are the ideal uses for transportable buildings which can be rented, which is flexible in size, of robust construction and may be located and the removed as and when desired. Renting is one option but if the contractor likes he can buy the units as the people who rent the units have a Portable Building Sales team handy to assist the firms design and purchase units which will suit their needs.
But although this business thrives on renting transportable buildings to the construction industry they have been found to have many further and widespread uses. Portable building sales have installed buildings as classrooms, club house, change rooms and even accommodation units for big sporting events, such as the Olympics.
The advantage of using these type of buildings is that they are designed with the clients requirements in mind but are preassembled in the factory so are delivered virtually complete. All that needs to be done is to hook up the services such as power and plumbing and all is set.
Many of these temporary transportable prefabricated buildings are attractive and in fact look permanent and stay in place for years.
