GLO stands for ground-level office. GLOs are modified from our standard storage container, creating a portable office. Since GLOs are delivered and set level to the ground, stairs, blocking and anchors are not needed, which allows for quick setup and ease of access. GLOs are designed to meet the customer’s jobsite needs and come in a variety of combinations. Though regional differences in models may exist, common types are: 20’ all office, 20’ office/storage combo, 40’ all office, 40’ office/storage combo and 40’ double office.
Our GLOs come standard with HVAC units, lighting, electrical hookup and outlets, data ports, sliding windows with screens and steel bar window security guards, steel security doors with deadbolts, built-in work surfaces and file cabinets, planning space, finished floors and insulated walls. GLOs with a restroom are available in select locations.
