Five Reasons Welfare Cabins Are Useful in Winter


No one wants to be working outside in the cold but for many construction site staff, they need to work around the clock to make sure project deadlines are met. But when the weather is cold, wet and miserable they will need a place to take respite - this is where the benefit of a site office is ideal, especially in winter - in this article we look at five reasons.


Important paperwork and belongings need to be stored securely which is where site offices and modular buildings offer a secure space for important materials. They can also be used for confidential meetings that need to be done on site. Alternatively, these portable buildings are great for employee locker rooms where they can get changed at the start and end of the day and keep all of their valuables safe.

Multiple uses

Site offices don’t just provide office space they have several other uses as well including break areas, kitchens, locker rooms, restrooms, showers, and more. Site managers turn to these modular buildings as an effective way to get up and running as quickly as possible.


Site offices are very eco-friendly and are cool in summer and warm in winter. At FOC Sales our welfare cabins use insulation materials to reduce power usage and improve electrics as some have 12V systems that then require a much smaller generator to supply the entire cabin.

COVID-19 safety

A new factor to consider with a welfare cabin or site office is reducing the spread of COVID-19. The need for creating social distancing between employees is critical in order to stop the spread of the disease. By adding an additional site office it will create an additional workspace where your employees can feel safe and keep healthy.

Health and safety

Most importantly workers in cold weather can be exposed to serious health problems such as frostbite and in extreme cases hypothermia. A site office gives employees the winter protection they need to keep warm when working in near freezing conditions.

Workers in cold weather could be exposed to serious health problems such as trench foot, frostbite, and hypothermia. In certain instances, workers exposed to severe weather without personal protection equipment (PPE) can also suffer shock that could lead to death. Your main priority on a construction site will always be the health and wellbeing of your construction crews, especially during the winter.
