Shipping Container Restrooms Boost Employee Productivity & Morale

Tough And Clean

One of Northern America’s largest offshore oil construction, mining and engineering organizations approached Falcon to create an easy-to-clean shipping container restroom for their oil field employees. They wanted to provide their employees with a clean restroom to improve employee satisfaction and retention.


Key Challenges

Creating a durable yet comfortable bathroom

When you think about restrooms on an industrial jobsite or oil field, the word unsanitary probably comes to mind. Traditional mobile restrooms and porta-potties often come up short in cleanliness, comfort and durability. 

Fortunately, restrooms or "comfort stations" constructed from modified Conex shipping containers provide a long-lasting and easy-to-clean solution. Today, our modified shipping container restrooms are in the field working wonders for employee morale and work site efficiencies.

The Solution: HVAC systems and durable finishes

Traditional comfort stations rarely come equipped with heating or air conditioning. All of our shipping container restrooms include fully operational HVAC systems. Climate controlled restrooms give employees a much-needed break from the heat and cold outside.

When workers are more comfortable, content and refreshed, they tend to be more productive and more likely to remain at their jobs.

Lowered costs through easy cleaning and energy efficiency

All restroom units include private stalls. The men's units also include a urinal to accommodate high-traffic periods. Motion-activated vent fans, indoor LED lighting, and photocell lighting to reduce energy costs and increase energy-efficiency.

To ease the cleaning process, shipping container restroom interiors include durable features that resist soiling and can be hosed or mopped down. The reduced cleaning time lowered related expenses.

A win-win solution for both employers and employees

Providing a more desirable workplace can give employers an edge when recruiting and retaining quality employees. Shipping container restrooms help support this goal, while improving productivity and keeping operational costs in check.
