Ah, summer. For many people the season signals downtime, vacations and long, relaxing weekends. After a dreary, cold winter, the higher temperatures draw folks outdoors to enjoy all sorts of fun activities.
For others, however, business heats up during summer. These warm-weather warriors can count on modular space to help them get the work done.
Here’s a small sampling of the many ways modular space solutions are utilized each summer:
Outdoor festivals: Whether it’s wine, food, music or arts, outdoor festivals ramp up during more temperate months. Event coordinators use modular space solutions for ticket booths/box offices, retail sales, food vending and material storage. One great example: Every summer, the Glimmerglass Festival in Cooperstown, New York, presents four main-stage productions of opera and musical theater. This summer, one of Williams Scotsman’s 60’x12’ mobile offices is on-site, helping the team hit all the right notes behind the scenes.
Campsites: School’s out! What would summertime be without sleep-away camping trips? Modular units are ideal for temporary campsite lodging, lockers, restrooms, shower areas and mess halls. When a Big Sandy, Texas, Christian youth camp that serves several thousand people needed an extra bunkhouse, we delivered a 74’x14’ unit.
Amusement parks and fairs: Our storage containers can hold all the equipment and materials theme parks, carnivals and fairs might need. A popular aquatic theme park headquartered in Orlando is leasing four of our 40’x’8 storage containers for use during their peak tourist season.
Sporting events: Baseball and football, horse races and car races, golf and tennis tournaments – attending an outdoor sporting event can be one of the most thrilling pastimes of summer. Whether it’s Little League or the big leagues, modular goes to bat, supplying snack shacks, ticket booths, security kiosks, administrative offices, press accommodations, VIP lounges and more.
Garden centers and landscaping companies: From expensive lawnmowers and tillers to pricey plants and trees, garden centers and professional landscapers need reliable space solutions to house their valuable equipment and materials. Our steel storage containers not only offer protection, they allow easy access to everything inside.
Farms and produce stands: Hampton tomatoes from New York, Eastern Shore Silver Queen corn from Maryland, juicy peaches from Georgia … the time is definitely ripe to savor the abundance of farm-to-table produce available during the summer. Growers can benefit from temporary modular solutions during their busiest season. Our 32’x8’ mobile office with steps and a Basic Office Package are on the job now for just such a purpose in Bainbridge, Georgia. A bit farther south, a family-owned and operated agricultural business in Lake Placid, Florida, is leasing the same package from us during the height of watermelon harvesting time.
Construction: Many residential and commercial construction projects kick into high gear when the weather is milder. Modular offices, meeting spaces and break rooms come equipped with HVAC and other amenities to keep crews cool and productive as they make the most of long summer workdays. We recently delivered a 20’x8’ container office to a construction company in Clay City, Kentucky, helping them to be “Ready to Work” for the next three years.
