Site Offices Melbourne

The first rule of worksites is that you do not talk about worksites! Well, okay, maybe that’s not quite true…because as everyone knows, the first rule of a worksite is to set up your site office. And there’s no easier way to do that than by calling Shipping Containers Melbourne for best quality site offices in Melbourne. Then, with the site office is in place, the whole, huge project can start forming from there. After all, a site office is the command centre on any big project, and can be found on worksites, construction sites, energy and mining sites all over Australia (and the world). It’s one of the first things shipped in, and one of the last to be shipped out.

What is a Donga?

This is a quite common question for those not from Australia. But for those working in or around the construction, mining or energy industries, the term Donga is very common, and basically means any temporary or semi-permanent dwellings.  So, in theory, a ‘Donga’ could be any of a dozen or more different types of converted or modified shipping containers used on a worksite. But by the far the most common use is to describe the humble site office.

Australia’s Best Site Offices

Here at Shipping Containers Melbourne, our container site offices are one of our top sellers, and when you see one, you’ll know why. Remember, shipping containers are designed for a long lifespan in rough conditions so they’re built tough! Every container is constructed to withstand the rigours of long ocean voyages, stacked up to eight containers high. From there they’re transferred by crane to truck to train to warehouse – or no warehouse at all! So a shipping container is well able to handle all that a busy construction site or mine site can throw at it. Ours are the strongest on the market, and offer impressive security.

Site Office Fit Outs Are Our Speciality

A Site Office Makes the Perfect Home Office

If your life could do with a little order amongst the chaos, why not install a site office in your backyard? Seriously, an office separate to your house (but on your land) can be a real boon to busy families and businesses operating in the SOHO (Single Owner Home Office) arena. It’s the ideal way to separate your work life from your home life. With the everyday quotidian distractions of your family life kept at arms length, you can finally concentrate on working on your business, rather than working in your business.
