MODULAR ACCOMMODATION CONTAINERS
Aust provisional patient no. 2008904503
is in its infancy as far as design work with containerized
accommodation is concerned. Internationally it is used for density
accommodation for motels, student accommodation and tourism thru to
quite unique housing solutions.
to the structural integrity, modular nature and universal standardized
transport methods, containers are an ideal component to develop internal
spatial uses within and in particular to service the resource sector.
design and construction have been at the forefront of assess overseas
solutions and transforming these ideas into an Australian answer. We
have peculiar requirements in Australia due to remoteness, heat, intense
sun, cyclonic conditions plus many others that demanded a localized
work has been put into developing solutions that satisfy many of the
growing demands of the resources sector. Its needs are changing from
being satisfied to use the old ‘donger’ to now needing a more homely,
private space for the use of staff after work. The structure has also to
be robust to withstand the often harsh user treatment given to these
units and remain transportable and reusable in new locations.
encompass all needs is a challenge when working within a rigid module
such as a container. Previous failings in design and crass deployment of
substandard units have earned containerized accommodation a less that
glowing recommendation. Designers have played with modular, affordable
components in this mechanized world for decades and now a solution is
emerging that provides a suitable living environment in Australian
latest designs have utilized the structural integrity of the container
whilst creating internal spatial arrangements of human comfort
to the incorporation of added container doors externally, the designers
have been able to encompass a fold out external private deck and roof
shelter to each unit therefore enabling the use of a glass into doors
and windows. Why is this so great, the internal ambience of each unit is
enhanced, a private space is created and in the event of cyclones etc
the deck and roof are folded back in and the doors are closed. Total
of the great failings of container use in accommodation has been in
insulation. This has been principally due to exposing the steel shell to
the direct sun and heat. An instant sauna, the heat is dissipated by
the use principally of air conditioning.
added advantage of using recycled containers (which is environmentally
credit worthy) in Australia is the constraints of transport can be
extended marginally without incurring transport cost penalties. Due to
this we have added an external insulation barrier to the container which
has two obvious impacts
a) Direct sun and heat does not strike the steel fabric of the container
b) The external appearance is altered and the perception of living in a container is alleviated.
a prefabricated roof structure has been utilized. This gives further
protection against the elements and providing roof to walkways, enclosed
space for airconditioning plant and roof for solar hot water and power
these elements will enable an overall star rating of 6.5 which is the
resource industry bench mark. It must also be remembered that these are
developed from a recycled component and will use far less energy to
maintain ambient temperatures than other solutions. A green solution!
fold down walkway is also encompassed and built in at the factory so
that the whole unit can be delivered to and deployed on site, finished
ready for use in approx 1 day.
building designs including encompassing mess halls, commercial
kitchens, laundries and ablution blocks can also be encompassed. These
can be incorporated into overall camp or institution designs which in
turn can incorporate water/waste water treatment systems, solar systems
and all aspects required to provide a fully functioning remote or
