Working in the field is tough, whether you’re out mining, shipping or operating any kind of business that requires you to be relatively off the grid. Logistically speaking, you need to ensure that you have a steady stream of the resources you need as well as the ability to maintain any equipment you need on site.
One of the main frustrations of being away from major population centers is the absence of proper workshops and spaces in which to carry out repairs of equipment or to store resources. If you’re working on a pipeline in the outback, then the chances of having permanent structures anywhere nearby for you to do maintenance in or use for storage are slim to none. One very applicable solution is using container shelters or container sheds adapted from shipping containers.
The benefits of using a container shed or shelter are numerous but it all really comes down to their versatility. First of all, the fact that they are adapted shipping containers means they are easily transportable via flatbed truck to wherever you happen to be set up. Once your shelter has arrived, it is a simple task for anyone with experience in constructing similar provisional shelters to unpack the components from the containers and set up your temporary work space. Despite their temporary nature, container shelters are incredibly durable and can withstand anything that nature can throw at them.
Even if you are near urban centers, using a temporary structure can still be very useful. The versatile nature of shelters like these from Container Domes Australia means you can set up and utilise work spaces in almost any clear space, and as your needs change, you can modify the shelters to match your requirements.
As a bonus, the shelters themselves are incredibly eco-friendly. Using lightweight modern materials to create the elements of the structures and combining that with re-purposed shipping containers means the environmental impact of making and transporting them is minimal. The development of the technology goes hand-in-hand with environmentally sound builds for homes and temporary living spaces using the same kind of re-purposed shipping containers. All in all they are an adaptive, reliable and energy efficient means for providing any industry with temporary and versatile work spaces.
