Between a labor shortage, a higher cost of lumber and steel and interruptions due to COVID-19, the construction industry is still enduring an array of supply chain challenges.
Some businesses are turning to mobile offices as a prebuilt alternative to new construction, and skipping the supply chain issues altogether. Below are some ways that mobile office trailers can help alleviate the stress of supply chain interruptions.
How Mobile Offices Can Help
Mobile Offices are prebuilt, so the need for new materials is limited. And by reducing projects dependency on scarce resources, timelines are more likely to remain on track.
Here are three additional ways mobile offices are alleviating supply chain stress:
- Speedy Delivery – Mobile offices are readily available and can often be delivered and ready for occupancy within weeks, sometimes in just days. Either way, it’s a faster option than traditional construction.
- Budget-Friendly – Mobile offices don’t require much, if any expensive new building materials, such as lumber. That means construction costs are often lower than traditional builds.
- Ready to Work – Some mobile office providers can even supply additional items such as furniture, data hubs, storage and more. This helps avoid backorders, and headaches, resulting from ordering office items on your own.
Mobile offices are a reliable option for alleviating supply chain issues endemic to all industries, especially in construction. Speak with one of our WillScot experts to learn how mobile offices can meet your needs.
