Custom Mobile Workshop for Oil & Gas, Mining Job Sites

Roll-up-Exterior1_450-edit.jpgThis 40’ custom Grout Workshop was just delivered to a worksite in Fort McMurray, AB. It will be placed on a trailer and has been designed to be easily moved to other job sites across Canada as needed.

That’s the great thing about steel buildings. Not only will they stand up to any climate, they’re also very easy to move. Shipping containers are built to withstand constant movement, so they can be shipped by boat, truck or train to wherever they’re needed. They also have multiple lifting points along the rigid steel frame, so they can be craned, forklifted or flown into almost any location.

This Grout Workshop is Part 10 certified and was designed to meet the customer's specific needs. Most importantly, they wanted a building that would provide a safer, more efficient work environment for their employees.

To control dust, plastic strip curtains, fresh air ducts and venting were installed. They also need a forklift to be able to deliver pallets into the building from either side, and the width needed to fit two 48" pallets side-by-side in each bay.

The building consists of two main areas with the following specifications:

Benefits of Building with Steel

BigSteeBox-20ft-office-Ex_170X100.jpgFor mobile structures on remote worksites, building with steel makes sense when compared to wood-frame construction.

BigSteelBoxes are built for ocean shipping and withstanding the elements, so they're much more solid, durable and stackable than trailers.
