What’s the Difference Between our Portable Site Offices and Premium Offices?

Choosing the right office space—be it a portable site office or a premium office—plays a pivotal role in the success of your endeavours.

At Instant Transportable Offices, our portfolio of completed projects, which spans into the thousands, stands as a testament to our expertise and commitment to excellence. Across Western Australia, we handle everything from approvals to delivery, installation, and commissioning, making your transition seamless.

This blog aims to showcase the differences between our portable site offices and premium offices, guiding you towards making an informed choice that aligns with your project’s demands.

What is a Portable Site Office?

Portable site offices are prefabricated, easily transportable buildings designed to meet the dynamic needs of construction, mining, and other industries requiring mobile office solutions.

These versatile structures can be quickly relocated and adapted to serve various functions, from traditional office spaces to specialised work areas. Their design allows for rapid deployment and reconfiguration, ensuring a highly adaptable choice for projects that demand flexibility and efficiency in operation.

What is a Portable Premium Office?

Portable premium offices are high-end, prefabricated workspaces distinct from traditional portable offices. They can be crafted to seamlessly integrate with your already existing structures, featuring architectural upgrades and high-quality finishes for a luxurious and practical setting. These offices are designed to meet the aesthetic and functional needs of permanent spaces.

The design features that come standard with our premium office range include:

  • Steel frame construction
  • Stylish external façade finishes
  • Internal plasterboard wall/ceiling finishes
  • Commercial-grade front glazing
  • Secure commercial entry doors
  • Integrated security systems
  • Split system reverse cycle air-conditioning
  • Flooring options: timber, vinyl, carpet, tiles, or any floor finish you may require is possible.

Overall Comparison Between Our Portable Site Offices & Premium Offices

Hiring / Buying Options

We offer both hiring and buying options for our portable site offices and premium offices, accommodating both short-term needs and permanent solutions.

This flexibility allows for efficient budgeting and project planning, ensuring you can select the option that best suits your project’s duration and financial considerations.

Tailoring Capabilities

Both office options offer extensive options to suit your specific project requirements and design preferences.

With our in-house design and manufacturing capabilities, we can create nearly any layout and finish you need.

Whilst our site offices provide practical, robust solutions with options for various exterior finishes and structural adaptations, our premium offices go a step further with high-end materials, advanced technological integrations, and superior aesthetic choices.

Durability & Weather Resistance

Both our portable site offices and premium offices are designed to withstand harsh conditions. We manufacture buildings in both ranges to non-cyclonic and cyclonic standards as required. Our commitment to using high-quality materials and adherence to ISO 9001:2015 standards ensures that neither office type is superior in weather resistance, highlighting our dedication to quality and reliability in all conditions.

Installation & Setup

We offer installation and setup for both our portable site and premium offices anywhere in Australia, though the process can vary. The portable offices are designed for quick deployment, but premium offices may require more time due to ancillary works like footing installation, verandahs, decks, ramps, handrails, and access systems.

These additional features ensure a complete solution tailored to customer needs, contributing to the slightly longer setup time for premium offices compared to the standard portable site offices.

Local AuthorityApprovals

Navigating local authority approvals is a critical step for setting up both portable site offices and premium offices. Our team offers comprehensive support at an additional cost to ensure all documentation and requirements are met for a smooth approval process. Portable offices typically face straightforward approval paths, while premium offices, with their more complex features, may require additional scrutiny.

Service Connections

Our total project solution includes coordinating service connections for your new office, regardless of which one you choose. To provide an accurate quote, we require plans showing service locations on your site. If your site is already established, this step may not be necessary, but a site visit by our contractors could be required to assess needs and ensure seamless integration.

Practical Considerations to Think About

Before choosing between a portable site office or a premium office, consider the following practical aspects to ensure the option you select aligns with your specific requirements:

  • Project Needs: Is your project temporary and expected to move locations? A portable site office offers the mobility and flexibility you need for such scenarios. Or is your project more permanent, requiring a stable, high-quality workspace? Then a premium office would be the better choice.
  • Budget: Do you have a tight budget? Portable site offices provide a cost-effective solution without compromising on essential features. If budget is less of a concern and you’re seeking additional amenities, the investment in a premium office will be the better choice.
  • Aesthetics: Are you looking for a functional space, or does the appearance of your office play a fundamental role in your project? If functionality is key, a portable site office will serve you well. However, if creating an impressive visual impact is important, a premium office will better meet your needs.
