SkyPodz LLC develops a new crane-based construction office, the SkyPod

When mounted on a skyscraper, the exterior of the SkyPod allows for construction company signage. Each unit is built on suspended steel beams with two stabilizers attached to the floor.

“We’re taking productivity improvements to new levels,” says Michael Hardin, president of SkyPodz. “It’s about improving your productivity and making it soar into the sky.”

SkyPodz LLC announced the SkyPod, a new mobile office and storage structure for high-rise construction projects, increasing productivity by allowing site managers and superintendents to stay closer to their work.

High-rise construction projects in urban areas often have limited storage and office space away from active work. Temporary offices are usually rented or built on site, but are rarely on the same floor where the work takes place. A SkyPod is a lightweight temporary office structure that can be hoisted by crane and mounted to any floor during construction. Providing an enclosed office, storage, and power source for any trade, a SkyPod saves the effort and hours of employees traveling to and from the mobile office on the floor.

“We wanted to create a place where superintendents would be close to their work, a quiet place to make phone calls, use a computer, view drawings and charge power tools,” says Michael “Mike” Hardin, president of SkyPodz.

Equipment includes:

  • Operating lamps
  • HVAC air conditioning
  • Mounted computer screens
  • Shelves, a desk, lockers for plans/drawings and tables
  • binder
  • Fridge and microwave
  • Circuit breakers for temporary electrical connections
  • Tool charging station
  • Optional storage space with roll-up door for large tools
  • Large signage area to display a company logo

Made from a lightweight 20ft aluminum. modified container, a SkyPod is mounted on a suspended steel beam assembly with stabilizer beams protruding inside the building. These spars are then temporarily fixed to the ground. Once ready, it can be detached and jumped to higher floors as construction progresses on the tower. The layout configuration can be adjusted according to needs and desires.

“We’re taking productivity improvements to new levels,” says Hardin. “It’s about improving your productivity and making it soar into the sky.”
