No matter the size of your job site, mobile offices are a great way to add temporary space. Job site construction trailers can be used for all sorts of purposes, from mobile construction offices to a meeting space, lunchroom, break room, and more.

Here at Satellite Shelters, we’re The First in Space when it comes to mobile and modular buildings. Let’s explore some of the purposes that a construction site trailer can be used for, and how you can add one to your own job site.

What can you use construction offices for?

Mobile offices are one of the most convenient and cost-effective types of buildings available to contractors. While the standardization of construction trailers makes installing them easy, that doesn’t mean you’ll be limited by them. Mobile offices come in a wide variety of sizes, from single-wide 8×24 units to double-wide 24×60 construction trailers.

Here are a few of the common ways that our customers use their construction trailers.

Offices and Meeting Spaces

Need an office for an onsite foreman or a space to hold meetings? An office trailer is a great choice. Depending on the size of trailer that you can fit in your workspace, our mobile offices can accommodate anywhere from two to four private offices—and all sizes offer viable meeting space. If your site needs more than 4 offices, additional buildings can be installed on site to accommodate all staff using the space.

Restrooms, Kitchens, and Breakrooms

Every job site needs to have the essentials. Mobile offices come standard with HVAC systems providing comfort in hot and cold conditions. Office trailers are ideal for breakrooms, providing space on site so workers don’t have to leave to take their breaks. Many of our mobile office designs can also be equipped with restrooms and kitchens, giving employees a fully functional space to enjoy their break.

Headquarters and More

Our job site construction trailers aren’t just for break rooms or offices. They can be used for a variety of other uses as well, including:

  • Meeting spaces
  • Architectural design spaces
  • Engineer Office
  • Sales offices
  • Customer offices
  • And more

Where can mobile offices be used?

Mobile offices are an extraordinarily flexible option and can be used at every stage of a construction project. Whether you’re just starting a yearlong process or are going through a renovation that will just last a couple months, the flexibility and quick installation of mobile offices is unmatched.

Best of all, mobile offices require very little space to install. If you have the square footage available for the unit you want to install, that’s almost all you’ll need – no other construction equipment needs to take up space around the building. It is, however, important that you make the site accessible for the delivery truck. The truck must be able to enter, exit and safely turn around if necessary to drop off your mobile office.

Specialty Products and Furniture

When you order a mobile construction office or job site trailer from Satellite Shelters, you can also add a variety of specialty products to your building. As a one-stop shop for your modular building needs, we’re happy to help provide the accompanying items so that you won’t have to scramble to fill your mobile office with what you need. Some of our specialty products include:

  • Hand sanitizer dispensers
  • Storage containers
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Portable restrooms
  • Steps and ramps
  • Skirting and tie-downs
  • And more

Additionally, Satellite Shelters can provide individual furniture and even furniture packages to fully complete your space, so you can get it and get right to work.
