5 Ways You Can Use Construction Containers on Your Job Site

5 Ways You Can Use Construction Containers on Your Job Site

The construction industry popularized the use of repurposed shipping containers in the early ‘80s. Construction companies used conex boxes to store tools and materials on job sites while protecting against theft. Today, construction container uses vary, but the industry continues to use them as trustworthy storage units, durable offices, and breakrooms. Here are five common ways construction containers are used:

1. Tool and Equipment Storage

Made with heavy-duty 16-gauge steel, breaking into shipping containers is difficult. Companies concerned about theft turn to storage containers for construction. A shipping container solution helps protect tools, equipment, and work supplies. Employees can easily access storage when on the job, but companies can securely lock the container after hours.

2. Mobile Office Construction Container

Most construction sites require a climate-controlled workspace for a project manager’s office, conference room, or gathering area for workers to review plans. Manufacturing teams can modify construction container offices to include bathrooms, built-in desks, and barred windows for added security, among other customization options.

3. Comfortable and Portable Breakroom

On-site breakrooms help keep morale high by providing a designated space for employees. Many container breakrooms include a small kitchenette, a bathroom, and a sitting area for employees to relax and take their lunch breaks. Falcon can add lockers upon request to help keep employee belongings safe.

4. On-Site Construction Container Restroom

Restrooms are a must for construction site workers. Companies that want to level up choose modified shipping containers as comfortable, durable, secure, and portable options. It’s easy to relocate this restroom again and again to different job sites over the year.

5. Dual Workspace and Storage Container

Some companies make the most of limited space by opting for a work and store container. We modify a 40-foot container to include both a workspace and a storage space inside a single unit. Depending on the need, we can split these units into equal spaces or distribute them in favor of one area. The workspace side includes climate control, a personnel door, and two windows. The storage side includes lights, electric outlets, and functioning cargo doors to provide easy access to the stored items.

At Falcon, we offer several standard office products that work well for construction companies with sizes ranging from 20 feet to 40 feet. If you need more customizations, we can do that too!
