Construction Trailer Sizes: Choosing the Right Setup for Your Job Site

This handy guide will walk you through each of the main construction trailer sizes and how to choose the most useful and cost-effective for your project.

Office trailers are an ideal solution for construction job sites; they provide staff with a comfortable, functional workspace at an affordable price. Plus, with plenty of options for purchases and leases, they can work around your budget.

There is a wide range of office trailer sizes that can accommodate different teams with desk setups, meeting spaces, storage, break rooms, bathrooms, and more. We’ll walk you through the different sizes so you can find the right construction trailer dimensions for your job site.

How to Choose the Right Office Trailer Size

In order to find the right construction trailer dimensions for your project, there are a number of factors to consider:

  • Project scope: First evaluate the scale of your construction project, including the length of time you will need to use the office. Larger projects may require multiple or larger trailers to accommodate the equipment, materials, and personnel you need.
  • Availability of space: Assess the available space on your construction site for placing your office. Consider any restrictions or obstacles that may affect the placement, including any heavy equipment that needs to get through the area.
  • Functionality: What is the use of the portable office? Will it primarily serve as an office space for project management and administrative tasks, or will it be used to store tools, equipment, and materials?
  • Number of personnel: Consider both the minimum and maximum number of people who will be working in the office throughout the life of the project. Ensure there is enough room for desks, chairs, and other necessary furniture.
  • Equipment and storage needs: Take into account the equipment and materials that need to be stored in the trailer. If you have large machinery or bulky items, you’ll need a trailer with plenty of storage space.
  • Regulations and codes: Make sure you’re in compliance with local regulations and building codes regarding the size and placement of any trailers on your site.
  • Mobility requirements: Determine whether your office will remain in one place throughout the project or if it will need to be moved multiple times.
  • Budget: As always, your budget will be a key factor in choosing between construction trailer sizes. Be sure to factor in expenses for transportation, setup, foundations, and furnishings.
