A 20ft site office could boost your construction employee productivity

20ft site office

Onsite offices could boost employee morale and output

The average Brit spends nearly 90,000 hours working throughout his or her life. This data alone makes it clear that people are spending a significant amount of time at work. 

While some may argue that we don’t really know what our jobs entail, the truth is that most of us spend much of our day doing something related to our job. 

With that knowledge, it’s easy to see why employees can feel fatigued, disengaged, or experience mood swings due to stressors like long commutes or poor office design. These issues can lead to lower productivity, increased turnover rates, and overall decreased morale among employees.

In addition to providing a comfortable environment, having an onsite office helps keep employees engaged and motivated. Employees are often happier when they feel valued and appreciated. 

When they have a place where they can come together and collaborate, they’ll naturally bond and develop deeper relationships. 

This month, Jennings Containers takes a look at how hiring a 20ft site office for your construction project could improve your employees’ productivity and morale, leading to high-quality workmanship and great project lead times.  

A 20ft site office that is customisable to your site needs

An office onsite with your construction workers could be the difference between a successful and unsuccessful business. No matter how much of a motivated individual you are, there is a good chance that you need some downtime at the end of the day.

Having a place to sit down and relax for a few moments can be the difference between finishing a task well and not bothering to complete it at all.

Try to envision your own construction site and think about what it would be like to work 12 hours a day, seven days a week. Would the workers be motivated and hard-working, or would they be tired and unmotivated? 

It is a fact that most workers need a place to sit down and relax for a few minutes during the day. A break is as important as constant motivation. With an onsite office, your workers will be more productive, happier, and more likely to stay at your construction site.

The benefit of hiring a 20ft site office is that the container is completely customisable to what you are looking for in a construction office. Need a space to hold stakeholder meetings? Perhaps your contractors need somewhere to make a coffee and rest for 5 minutes? 

Whatever you are looking for from your onsite office, a 20ft site office from Jennings Containers will help you get it. 

The benefits of a 20ft site office for your staff

More reliable delivery

Construction sites often take multiple deliveries per day. Construction sites are often busy, from the average postal delivery to large commercial and materials delivery. 

If you have an onsite container, you can monitor deliveries closely and support your construction employees by signing for the delivery, meaning they can get on with their tasks. Deliveries are more likely to be successful.

Improved consistency and quality

If the project manager is based onsite in a 20-foot office, this could support consistent working and overall quality from construction employees and contractors. 

We all know productivity tends to be lower when employers are not on site. For the construction industry, this can mean delays in the project leading to unhappy end customers.

Better safety measures

Construction sites are often considered unsafe places. Subcontractors and employees must ensure they are wearing the right PPE, have undertaken the correct training, and are aware of their surroundings at all times. 

Safety measures and exercise are often of a higher quality for construction sites with onsite container offices, reducing the risk of onsite accidents and injuries.

Increased reliability and efficiency

How do you know if your team are working effectively if you are not on site when they are? Being based on site consistently in a safe container office will help increase your workforce’s reliability and ensure their work output is efficient.

Reduced environmental impact

The construction industry is in the spotlight for the environmental impact they are having across the world. A 20ft site office container will help reduce the environmental impact by lowering travelling and giving the site a safe and consistent place to take breaks rather than leaving the construction site.

Higher workforce satisfaction

The most important reason for having a 20-foot site container at your construction site is to show your employees and subcontractors that you work with them and alongside them every day. This daily is the easiest and most effective way to boost employee morale and productivity.
