Speedspace is often called upon to assist with projects where a large remote accommodation solution is needed – requiring our design teams to overcome a number of unique challenges to deliver the final solution.
In this particular project, a large client required a solution to accommodate 32 staff members in a remote area in Mozambique, and the scope required the accommodation to be robust and strong enough, yet comfortable and clean.
The camp needed to be self-sustainable due to its remote nature, requiring a number of creative design aspects related to electrification, water reticulation and waste water management.
A total of 18 Cargo Steel marine containers were converted for this particular solution, which included 20′ insulated sleeper units and a 20′ ablution facility with fully functional showers, WC basins, water reticulation, pumps and the ability to macerate the waste into a waste tank and hot water geysers.
The self-sustained camp required reinforced potable 20′ container water tanks with a capacity to hold 34000L, supplying the ablutions with clean water, as well as grey and wastewater re-enforced 20′ container tanks to pump all the waste into, with easy-to-install couplings for seamless on-site “plug-and-play” installation from water supply to ablutions and back into waste tanks.
In addition, the project involved a 40′ container insulated and prepared for use as a recreation area, as well as 20′ containers fully fitted with diesel generators and tanks with all the electrical reticulation and infrastructure.
All of these requirements were handled with great professionalism and enthusiasm, with the final remote camp delivered to the complete satisfaction of the international client.
