In 1934, Chicago suffered through a record high of over 106 degrees; in 1985, they achieved a record low of -27 degrees.
Mobile Office Solutions for Chicago
Wind, rain, snow, and freezing conditions can wreak havoc on buildings and facilities, whether being renovated or built from scratch. They can also damage temporary space and storage space, such as mobile offices, modular buildings (either temporary or permanent), storage containers, or classroom trailers.
In order to best deal with Chicago’s weather throughout the year, look into:
- weather-resistant facilities
- insurance options, extended warranties, or property damage programs
- skirting (which protects the underside of mobile facilities from harsh weather)
- awnings, canopies, and tie-downs (which provide cover and protection from wind, rain, and snow)
- air conditioning and heating options (a must in Chicago)
New facilities can benefit from modular building construction, an effective solution to protect against bad weather during the construction process. Modular construction is carried out in an indoor plant environment at the same time that the on-site work (utilities, foundation, etc.) is being done. The result is faster construction and fewer weather delays.
