Staff housing


Fully equipped MAC container homes for short- or long-term accommodation make it so much easier to keep and attract temporary staff. You can create opportunities for live-in employment without sacrificing your own privacy.  Warm, comfortable accommodation will be a big plus for jobseekers, especially when working outdoors.

  • Flexibility. Our buildings can be adapted to a variety of uses and needs.  We can fit ramps, handles, stairs, shutters, gangways and more
  • Planning.  Planning permission is often not necessary, as container housing is considered non-permanent.  For further information, please see our guide to planning permission
  • Rental value. If you want to let your container housing or offer a home as part of a staff package, a rough guide to the rental value is 75% of the market rate for a bricks and mortar alternative
  • Building regulations. If your staff only occupy the home or homes for short stays, it is not necessary to comply with building regulations, making them 30-40% cheaper. Check with your local planning authority if any restrictions or regulations apply
