Essential Construction Hire Facilities
With any construction project, there is a need to hire facilities that cater for your workforce. Buying facilities, such as portable toilets and welfare cabins, is simply not feasible for the majority of construction firms. Facilities become dated quickly, they require maintenance work and of course you need to be able to store them.
Hiring also allows you to choose the specific facilities you need for that specific construction project, based on the size and time it takes to complete the project. But in most cases, there is an essential list of facilities required for pretty much all construction projects. In this article, we will take you through the most essential construction hire facilities.
Toilets are a must for any construction project. There are a range of construction orientated portable toilets on the market, depending on your requirements. The standard recirculating toilet is the most popular option, thanks to its independent power and plumbing – making it useable just about anywhere. From reputable suppliers, these are also HSE compliant for best hygiene.
If you have access to power, then you can consider portable toilets with hotwash facilities. Most suppliers stock both 16 amp 240 volt plugs and mains connected portable toilets. These are usually a little more pricey, but the hot water facility is a massive bonus.
Generators are essential when working away from easily accessible power grids. They are there to provide a steady electrical power supply for all your construction needs. Generators come in lots of different shapes and sizes, with a variety of different power outputs. Most construction firms will know what size generators and what power outputs they need, but if for any reason things change, it is important to look for a supplier who are flexible and can upgrade or downgrade your generator requirements.
Temporary fencing, such as Heras fence panels, are perfect for setting up a site perimeter and differentiating to the public where and where they cannot access. They also keep sites secure and can act as a first line of deterrent for unwanted individuals entering the construction site. Reputable suppliers should also include clips and blocks as standard.
For expensive tools, machines and materials that need to be left on site overnight, secure storage facilities are essential. These hardened containers are near impossible to break into, thanks to their anti-theft and anti-vandal mechanisms. Secure storage containers are usually available in a range of sizes, depending on your construction sites needs .
For larger construction projects, break rooms and canteen areas are essential for workers. Workers on small construction projects can get away with eating their butties in the van, but larger ones need places for people to take a break and made a brew. They can also act as shelter against harsh weather conditions and can be used for storage of items that are not valuable but need protection from weather conditions.
