The green construction site and the latest in eco-friendly welfare facilities

The construction industry is one of the largest consumers of natural resources, and it generates a significant amount of waste and pollution. Therefore, the importance of sustainable and environmentally-friendly practices in the construction industry cannot be overstated. With the increasing awareness of the impact of human activities on the environment, more and more companies are making a conscious effort to reduce their carbon footprint and adopt green construction practices.

As one of the UK's leading welfare cabin hire companies, we believe that providing eco-friendly welfare facilities is not only our responsibility but also a competitive advantage in the market. By offering green solutions to our clients, we can help them reduce their carbon footprint and contribute to a sustainable future.

Why do we need eco mobile welfare units?

In an economy suffering from staggering inflation and high fuel prices, companies are seeking out energy-efficient solutions to every aspect of their projects. Welfare units are not to be overlooked.

Older and less efficient welfare units can pose a subtle yet important drain on project resources. Designed to provide shelter, warmth and amenities to the employees on a site, inefficient welfare units can be a continual power drain on a budget, especially on remote sites where work is carried out around the clock.

The Solution

At Welfare 4 Hire we pride ourselves in offering the latest generation of energy efficient welfare units, aimed at cutting costs and emissions on the green construction site.

The latest in eco-friendly welfare facilities have been designed to be energy efficient, reduce waste and conserve resources. Eco mobile welfare units consume less energy and incorporate sustainable materials wherever possible, for a lower environmental impact.

There are a variety of ecological mobile welfare units available on the market, all of which incorporate one or more of the following options or accessories in order to minimise their environmental impact:

  • Solar panels: Solar panels are a great way to harness the power of the sun and reduce reliance on traditional energy sources. Solar panels can be integrated into the roof of the cabin or can be provided as an auxiliary power generation option.
  • Water economy: It is good practice generally to be conservative with the use of clean water, but this is even more evident on remote sites where water may have to be brought in in bowsers at an additional cost. In view of this, some welfare cabins incorporate water economy flush systems, water recycling systems or rainwater harvesting systems to truly economise on every last drop of this precious resource.
  • Sustainable or recycled materials: Some welfare cabins incorporate recycled materials into the construction. This may come in the form of recycled metals or plastics used in the structure. Others incorporate sustainably sourced materials such as bamboo, cork, engineered wood, or recycled or sustainable insulating materials. These materials are not only environmentally-friendly but also durable and long-lasting.
  • Energy-efficient lighting: Eco-friendly welfare cabins are usually equipped with energy-efficient electrics, including energy-efficient lighting. LED lights are a great example of this. They are often used for the interior and exterior welfare cabins and can come equipped with dimmer switches to control the brightness.
  • Natural ventilation: Natural ventilation can be a great ally in reducing the need for air conditioning and heating. Good design including large windows or skylights that allow for plenty of natural light, and air vents ensures that fresh air is constantly circulating and maximises the use of sunlight and heat.
