More About Us
Australia 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 through to quite unique housing solutions. Due 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.
Our design and construction have been at the forefront of assessing 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 solution.
Intense 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 âdongerâ 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.
To 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 than 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 conditions.
Our latest designs have utilized the structural integrity of the container whilst creating internal spatial arrangements of human comfort proportions. Due 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 protection!
One 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. The 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.
Direct sun and heat does not strike the steel fabric of the container
The external appearance is altered and the perception of living in a container is alleviated.
Further, 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 if desired.
Collectively 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!
A 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.
Other 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 localized establishment.
