Working on a cold construction site can be challenging, particularly when the weather threatens to damage equipment, tamper with your concrete’s setting process, or keep the ground from thawing during landscaping projects. If you don’t take the proper precautions, low temperatures can force your contracting team to stay at the same site for weeks on end to finish up. Costing you valuable time, money and preventing you from moving on to the next project. Here at On Site, we offer a wide selection of concrete curing blankets that are specially designed to keep concrete, blocks and bricks at an optimal temperature. Today we’ll be discussing six reasons why renting a concrete blanket will improve your construction project. But before we do, let’s briefly explain how cold weather can affect your site.

Sanitation Special Events

Whether you’re in charge of providing restrooms for a campground, cabin, park or any other location without the resources to facilitate conventional bathrooms, it can be tough to determine which option will best meet the needs and preferences of your guests and visitors. And just to complicate things even further, there are many factors and key considerations to make when choosing between outside restrooms, including the cost of rental or construction, maintenance, comfortability for users and more. At first glance, it might seem like a good idea to build your own outhouse at the site. After all, they’re easy to maintain and relatively sanitary, right?

Sanitation

Whether you refer to it as a porta john, a porta potty, or a portable toilet, we all know what the purpose of this outdoor convenience. However, not many of us now how they work. More importantly, what to do with the remains. Portable toilets are essential for any large outdoor gathering. Concerts and sporting events can draw tens of thousands of people who will all require access to restrooms. Public restroom facilities are not always available, especially in remote areas where some of these events take place. With all of those people using the portable toilets, it’s important to safely and quickly dispose of the remains. If waste isn’t disposed of properly there can be significant human health hazards as well as pollution of the environment.  So where does all of that waste go when the game ends and the concert goers head home?

Proper ventilation for construction heaters; it’s one of those job site basics that you don’t even think about until something goes wrong. Professionals will tell you that proper ventilation is the key to a successful and on time project when using construction heaters. As we all know, construction doesn’t sleep. As nice as it would be to only work in the warmer months it’s not feasible. Things break or need to be built; it’s just a part of life. And spending energy being angry about the weather is a futile endeavor. It’s going to rain and snow, depending on where you live, and the temperatures will drop. The best contractors can tell you that the secret to a productive winter season is preparation.

There’s some awesome things about winter. Basketball and hockey season rolls around. Thanksgiving and Christmas offer some much-needed vacation spent eating delicious food with friends and family. The snow provides a beautiful landscape when it covers the ground and trees. You get to watch holiday classics like Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Christmas Vacation for the 20th time. However, there are some drawbacks of winter as well. Especially in the frigid midwestern winters we experience in Minnesota. Icy roads, warming up our vehicles in the morning, sub-zero wind chill. And for construction sites, winter freezes the ground, making conditions for work extremely difficult.
