If you’ve been hired to work for a company that is based out of a storage container building, or you’re considering building one to start your own Georgia-based business, the first thing you need to ask yourself is, could I go to work in a tiny office every day?
This sustainable building design has become popular in the U.S. because of its eco-friendly materials, energy-efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. Just because we live in a society with a “bigger is better” mentality doesn’t mean we can’t think small sometimes. Without sacrificing the quality of work produced, these units can help you get back to business basics while providing numerous benefits.
What Are The Benefits Of A Tiny Office?
Some people have a difficult time visualizing themselves working in a storage container building, but there are a number of benefits to these workspaces.
- Reputation—A company immediately shows off its reputation by choosing to exist in a shipping container. These structures show a business’s commitment to sustainability, which can draw in like-minded customers and clients.
- Eco-friendly—Smaller workspaces mean smaller environmental footprints. The resources required to build the units are considerably less than traditionally sized office buildings, and the cost to maintain the spaces long term is much cheaper because they are well-insulated and require less energy.
- Savings—Georgia can get brutally hot in the summer months, but with a tiny office, the cost of air conditioning is considerably cheaper than standard offices. The less money that is spent on energy costs, the more profit can be spent on salaries, employee incentives, and other things.
- Easy to maintain—When you have less space, you have fewer spots for clutter to build up. Of course, you’ll have to get creative with storage ideas, but at least cleaning will be a much quicker process.
- Safety—Storage container buildings are sturdy and can withstand the harshest Georgia weather much better than conventional building structures. These units are made to be carried on ships for long periods of time, so they are more resistant to flooding and harsh hurricane winds. Because they were also originally designed to stack on top of each other, they are also more resistant to trees that fall on them and structural rot that traditional buildings see over time.
