Modular buildings are an optimal solution for improving remote oil and gas projects as companies expand into new, untapped locations. Buildings can be quickly transported and setup almost anywhere to meet a variety of needs.
Watch this video to see a time-lapse of a large workforce camp installation. Then read on below to learn about the top five ways oil and gas companies can create a perfect worksite with modular buildings:
1. Project Management Offices
Onsite mobile offices allow managers to oversee projects and worker productivity firsthand. Offices can be built to any size or configuration and sections can be added or removed as project needs change.
2. Guard Houses
Delivered fully-assembled or ready for assembly onsite, guard houses are easily added or moved about the site as needed.
3. Blast Resistant Buildings
Some oil and gas worksites require additional safety protocols. Blast Resistant Buildings offer protection for workers and equipment. BRMs, as they are often called, let workers remain onsite for restroom and lunch breaks instead of transporting them offsite. Simply stated, they keep workers safe and allow you to maximize productivity.
4. Workforce Housing
Energy companies often find that workers living onsite have a better experience than those living in remote locations. Temporary modular housing can offer workers a feeling of home, while saving the company the cost of hotel rooms and loss of productivity associated with long commutes to job sites.
5. Cafeterias and Lunchrooms
Cafeterias and lunchrooms give workers a place to recharge and refuel so they can return to work focused and safe, and stay productive all day long. Modular cafeterias can be outfitted to any spec, including commercial grade kitchens, walk-in freezers and coolers, and enough storage room to provide meals for an entire workforce.
While not modular modular buildings, portable storage containers are an excellent option for keeping valuable equipment and materials onsite and secure. Quality storage containers include lockboxes, good ventilation and heavy-gauge steel to keep your assets safe and in good condition.
As the oil and gas industry continues to expand operations, modular buildings continue to be a valuable option for optimizing worker and project productivity.
