No longer are shipping containers just for shipping! If you are conducting business at a temporary job site, you know that the machines and construction work may make too much noise for project managers or other workers to focus on other operational aspects of the job like paperwork and email follow-up. A ground-level office is a great alternative to a trailer to give your team a quiet place to handle the work they need to.
More and more organizations are thinking outside of the box and creating ground level offices (GLOs) out of shipping containers. At A American Container, our strong, durable modular units will be delivered to your property by our team of experts so you can get right back to work.
What is a Ground Level Office?
A GLO is a shipping container that has been turned into a portable office space – ideal for businesses in need of compact, sturdy offices who work temporarily at different locations. Unlike office trailers that need OSHA approved stairs and a chassis, shipping container GLOs sit directly on the ground.
Some of the benefits of GLOs include:
- Durability: At A American Container, our containers are constructed of 12–gauge steel and are built to withstand extreme weather conditions such as high wind, rain, fire, and hurricanes.
- Security: All storage container rentals come equipped with the A American secure locking system, making our containers virtually vandalism proof!
- Portability: GLOs can be easily moved from one location to another without being damaged, saving businesses money and headaches. Another big cost–saver? Remember, GLOs do not require stairs, in most locations, there aren’t as many regulations and approvals to contend with. All you really need is a flat, dry, and level surface.
Who Can Use a Ground Level Office?
Many industries need temporary office space. Our shipping container company typically works with businesses such as:
- Construction Companies
- Residential Home Developers & Communities
- Manufacturing facilities
- Trades companies like landscapers and HVAC experts
- School Districts
If you need a place where your project management team can get some work done on a job site or other busy location, a ground-level office may be the best option. Contact us today to learn more about our quality shipping container rentals.
