Blu Corporate Housing is the ideal choice for anyone looking for construction crew lodging anywhere in the country. If you need accommodation for yourself or your crews, we’re here to help.

You probably know all too well how cramped a hotel room can be after a few weeks. If you’re on a construction project for any length of time, there really is nothing like having a fully furnished apartment to stay in. You get more space, more freedom and room to breath after a hard day’s work.

There are many benefits to using corporate housing for your construction crews, here are just a few:

Benefits for Employers

If you run crews around the country, or even your state, you know how expensive it can be to have your team living in a hotel, even a cheap one. The effect on morale is significant as you’ll hear with the reaction you get when you tell them they are working away from home for a while!

Blu Corporate Housing’s crew housing uses the same high quality furnished housing as our corporate clients. They cost the same, enjoy the same high level of decoration, outfitting and locations. Plus, you can house several workers at once in each apartment, depending on the size.

They also offer significantly more living space than a hotel room and best of all, they cost much less. The average housing solution from Blu Corporate Housing costs up to 50 percent less than a comparable hotel room for stays of 30 days or more.

Giving your staff more space, more freedom and a higher standard of accommodation while they are away will only benefit you as an employer. You get happier, more productive staff who are more likely to stay loyal to someone who looks after them. Considering all these benefits cost less than a hotel, it’s a win win!

Benefits for Construction Crews

The crews themselves work hard, so will want to relax too. While hotels offer a lot, they are cramped, offer extremely varying levels of comfort, can be lonely and very boring. Hotels will charge you for everything, some TV channels, making calls, laundry and of course, your meals. While much of it will be covered by the company, some of it will not.

Blu’s construction crew lodging offers everything you would expect from a high class apartment, in good areas, with all the comforts of home. Depending on the size of the apartment, you could be sharing with your buddies or have it all to yourself.

The apartment is likely to have TV, maybe cable, a fully working kitchen, laundry and everything else you enjoy at home. If you were working away for a few weeks at a time, which would you rather have?

If you need construction crew housing anywhere in the country for periods of 30 days or more, contact us today. We’re here to help! You can also start your housing hunt by navigating our directory and finding your city.

Corporate housing is one of the few real estate markets that has seen growth over the past five years. Despite falls almost everywhere else, the company rentals market has grown and shows no sign of stopping.

Furnished relocation housing is a rental provided predominantly to companies who want to house executives or traveling staff for longer than 30 days. They are generally furnished apartments or single family homes in nice areas and are of a high standard. They are designed to fill the gap between long-stay hotels and standard property rentals, and do a good job filling it.

Many corporate landlords or rentals agencies will accept non-corporate clients for longer stays, which is why we suggest they are ideal for a stress-free relocation.

List of housing companies who can help with relocation:
  • Blu Corporate Housing – Yes, we do engage in self-promotion! Contact us.
  • Travelers Haven – This is one of the top 3 corporate leasing companies in the country. Large staff and 24/7 customer service.
  • Hotel Engine – This is a little different than your typical corporate housing provider. Hotel Engine specializes in hotel stays for short, mid, and long-term rental.
  • CHBO – This is a self service provider. Think Air Bnb, only for corporate housing. Many options, including room rentals.
  • Oakwood – This may be the oldest corporate housing provider on the block. Large inventory. Pricing can sometimes be on the high side.
  • VRBO – This is technically for “vacation rentals”, but can be used for corporate relocations all the same. This is similar to the CHBO model.
  • Craigslist – If you’re looking for budget options or roomshares, this is probably your best bet. Lotsa of different options can be found here from upscale to economy.
New City, New Life

Relocating to a new city for work or to seek employment opportunity is both exciting and scary. Everything is new, you don’t know anyone, you don’t know where anything is and it takes a long time to get oriented. If you’re moving for work, it is made a little easier as you will have colleagues to offset some of it. If you’re moving to seek opportunity you may not have that.

Using corporate lodging as a base when relocating to a new city offers the perfect platform to explore your new home. Of all the things you will worry about, where to live doesn’t have to be one of them.

Finding somewhere to live in a new city is a logistical exercise that takes some sorting out. It will generally require a trip to the city in question for a visit, to check out the property and to see where it is in relation to everything else. It may require a return visit to sign the paperwork if you’re not lucky enough to do it the same day.

Corporate Housing as a Base of Operations

One of the advantages of using corporate housing is the quality. Companies who send staff around the country expect a minimum standard of living for their people. Landlords know that their property has to be a certain standard otherwise it won’t be let.

Therefore, using a corporate property assures you of a minimum standard of living. That’s something you could never guarantee with a standard rental. Anyone who spent any time in college will tell you, rented properties come in all shapes, sizes and levels of habitability!

If you’re brave, that means you won’t need an inspection visit, the arrangements can be made over the internet, post or phone, and the whole process is taken care of in one fell swoop.

Having secured somewhere to live that will be fit for habitation and won’t cost the earth is how moving to a new city using corporate housing can be stress-free. If nothing else, you have a roof over your head and somewhere to use as a base to explore your new home. There are few accommodation options that can provide that within a decent budget.
