Why Should There Be Portable Rest Shelters for Construction Workers

The construction industry is one of the most labour-intensive industries. About 30 million workers from the unorganised sector work at construction sites in India.

The workers face several challenges at work every day, such as long working hours (for 10-12 hours), working without proper safety equipment, etc. However, one of the most critical issues that affect these workers the most is the lack of appropriate rest shelters during and after work hours.

Many construction owners often let the workers stay in dilapidated and make-shift tents, leaving them vulnerable to issues like no safety for women and children and no proper sanitation facilities. Also, after working in extreme conditions all day and with no place to rest, workers often fall sick, resulting in absenteeism, which affects the work and the project deadline. 

To counter these issues, many construction owners rely on installing portable cabins at construction sites for the workers’ convenience and safety. If you are looking for a portable cabin, you can install MobiNest, a steel-based portable cabin solution manufactured by Nest-In from the house of Tata Steel.


Let us look at the importance of portable rest shelters for construction workers


Safe living space

Typically, depending on the size and nature of the project, construction work lasts for a few months to a couple of years. This means you would need many workers on site every day to carry out different tasks.

By installing portable cabins like MobiNest, you can ensure that the workers have a safe living space ensuring that there is no delay on the project timelines.


Customisable cabin

One of the significant benefits of portable cabins like MobiNest is that you can custom-design to different sizes to suit your needs. Apart from the size, the interiors of the cabins are fully customisable. You can install different amenities as per your requirement.

Apart from offering housing solutions, you can convert these to provide sanitation facilities to the workers, so they don’t have to walk a long distance to relieve themselves or defecate in the open.



The MobiNest cabins are made with high-quality steel and other superior materials that are certified by SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company. Not to mention, MobiNest undergoes the most stringent quality check during the manufacturing process, making it tough and strong and resistant to harsh weather.

Lastly, these structures require minimal maintenance, and they continue to function efficiently for many years.


Easy to install, and transport

The MobiNest cabins are easy to install and are suitable for all kinds of on-site locations such as construction and mining sites and manufacturing plants. Not to mention, they can be easily transported to different locations.

Portable cabins like MobiNest serve different purposes for construction workers and business owners. To know more about these cabins, you can contact the experts at Tata Steel Nest-In, and we will be happy to help.
