Construction

At On Site, we know everything that there is to know about portable sanitation products. It might not seem like the most glamorous of businesses, but it’s a vital one. When you’re on a road construction site, the last thing you want is to worry about is where you can go to the bathroom. For larger projects, there nothing worse than having to walk half a mile to get to the nearest restroom, or to have to wait in line during lunch when all of your coworkers are also trying to relieve themselves. Portable restrooms have come a far way since their inception. On Site porta potties can be partnered with any number of our accompanying portable sanitation stations, such as our construction hand wash stations. From our Standard Construction Unit to our specially designed High Rise Unit, we can provide your job site with all of the equipment that you need to keep your work area and workers clean and comfortable. Taking a job in the suburbs or in a neighboring town? Not a problem. All of our porta potties configurations listed below are available for rent in the Minneapolis/ St. Paul, Mankato, and Rochester, Minnesota areas. We also offer rentals at our St. Louis, Missouri location. All On Site porta potties will be delivered clean and graffiti free.  

What are Heat Blankets for Concrete?

Heating

In the Midwest, working with concrete during the winter months can be a massive challenge. Temperatures can drop so low that they freeze the ground and make it tough to place and cure your materials, resulting in massive drops in efficiency that cost you valuable time and money. Fortunately, there are a variety of tools and techniques that you can use to warm up the ground in preparation for concrete application, but not all of these tactics are convenient and cost-effective. For example, some construction teams and contractors will elect to enclose the work space and heat the air inside. These enclosures are comfortable and effective, but they’re also incredibly expensive to setup and maintain, making them a poor choice unless the ground is so cold that concrete can’t be placed properly without them. If you’re interested in finding an inexpensive tool for curing concrete without compromising on the quality and speed of your project, then you should strongly consider investing in high-quality concrete curing and ground thaw blankets.
