What is Contractor Accommodation and How Does it Benefit Your Team?

If you’re a construction manager, then you’ll know that organising accommodation for a team of trades is a costly expenditure, especially when paying for multiple nights at a hotel.

New forms of contractor accommodation

New forms of contractor accommodation, like contractor guest houses, are taking over the market and becoming popular amongst construction managers. These new alternatives host a range of benefits for construction companies, benefits we’ll explore in this article.

We’re going to break down what contractor accommodation is, the benefit it has to construction firms, and how you can find suitable accommodation that gives your teams a good night’s rest at a cost-effective price.

What is Contractor Accommodation?

Contractor accommodation is (unsurprisingly) accommodation for contractors. A hotel is an example of contractor accommodation, but new alternatives, like serviced properties for contractors, are becoming more popular.

Serviced apartments are essentially a contractors’ guest house. Rather than booking a single room that only includes a bed and shower, booking a serviced property gives you access to a living room, kitchen, and all the standard utilities you’d find in a home or apartment.

Contractor accommodation is used to house contractors who are working away from home on a job for anywhere between a few days to a few months.

What Are the Benefits of Contractor Accommodation?

If your team are working away from home, then you want to ensure they feel comfortable. Hotel beds are nice, but a single room can soon become claustrophobic. A contractor guest house gives your team more room.

Multiple contractors can share accommodation, each having a room to themselves. This makes it an extremely cost-effective option, especially since most providers of contractor accommodation offer discounts for long-stay bookings. Since serviced apartments and contractor guest houses have kitchens, you also save company expenses by not paying for meals every night.

People who run serviced apartments, or a contractor’s guest house, pick properties that are in a central location. This means they’re surrounded by nice restaurants and eateries. One of the main complaints that contractors have when working away is that they are bored in the evening. Working all day and then being confined to a single room becomes monotonous and affects team morale.

We’re passionate about providing our guests with plenty of things to do on an evening. We know how important it is to your business. For example, look at a blog we created on things to do in Middlesbrough by clicking here.

What Makes Good Contractor Accommodation?

Cleanliness is a big thing. Many providers of contractor accommodation pay professional cleaners to regularly visit the property. We recommend checking images online and asking if you can view the property before booking any long stays.

Location is another key factor. Alongside contractor accommodation that is close to site and has easy transport links to where you’re working, you also want somewhere that is close to local amenities. There need to be things that your team can do on an evening, like having a drink with colleagues or seeing a local play.

Price is important, especially if you’re working away for extended periods. Ask providers if they offer discounts for long stays. Not all of them do, so it’s worth asking. We offer exclusive rates to contractors who book for more than four days, which means substantial savings for long bookings.
