Sizing Your Construction Office Trailer

Sizing Your Construction Office Trailer

Allied Trailers can help you size, budget, and deliver your construction trailer!

Buying or renting a construction office trailer requires several steps: purpose, sizing, budgeting, and delivering. With a simple plan like this, you can easily be on your way to getting the product you need. While mobile office trailers are beneficial for many purposes, construction is one of the largest industries to use an office trailer. If you are looking for the right construction office trailer for your site, Allied Trailers can help you size, price, and deliver it properly.

Exterior Sizing

Sizing your construction office trailer involves two factors: knowing how much space you have, and knowing how many employees will need to work there. One should measure how wide and long the parking area is, and choose a trailer with exterior measurements that are smaller than that space. Keep in mind that construction office trailers are raised, sitting permanently on a chassis, so OSHA-approved stairs or ramps will need to attach to the entryways, adding additional square footage.

Interior Sizing

As for the interior, one will need to account for how many people will need office space. In North America, a typical office will give between 125-225 square feet per person, or as low as 125 square feet per person in an open office setting. One could have a mix of enclosed office rooms and cubicles in a single-wide trailer.
