Mobile Laboratories

Comfortable, high-tech labs and work spaces rugged enough for the field.

We understand the importance of creating a functional and comfortable work space in field. We've created a number of mobile labs designed for testing on job sites, so we already understand what it takes to create a lab that is suitable for use on Oil & Gas, Mining and Infrastructure Construction sites.

Every time we build a lab, our goal is to fully understand the needs and functions of the workspace before starting the design. We work closely with your team so we can source the required equipment on your behalf and deliver a turn-key solution.

Equipment like stainless steel counter tops and back splashes, chemical resistant sinks, centrifuges, safety showers and custom venting are products we have sourced and installed for past customers. Have a look at the photo gallery below, or watch the video (above) of a recently completed lab for Grizzly Oil Sands.

If you have a project we would love to hear from you. Contact us today to find out how we can help.

Benefits of Building with Steel

BSBS-skid-stairs_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.
