Shelter Modular Inc., has introducing its “all-steel” dorm units this year to the Oil and Gas Industry with rave reviews. Called the ‘ExecuDorm Series”, they are an alternative to traditional workforce housing camps being offered currently. The steel dormitories are CSA approved, constructed of heavy gauge steel, non-combustible and are approximately 20% more energy efficient than wood constructed modules.
A typical single dorm module is 12 feet wide by 60 feet long, with five suites, and can be stacked three (3) high to lessen the environmental footprint of the building site. The interior finishes are of higher quality and allow for a larger living space, drywall finish, separate climate controls as well as its own bathroom.
“The feedback we received from both the Calgary Oil and Gas Show, as well as the Red Deer Oil and Gas Expo, exceeded our expectations. The dormitory was on display at the shows and we had numerous potential clients return with Company Presidents and CEO’s to tour them through our product. The goal in developing this type of dormitory was to target the need for more executive style workforce accommodations while reducing the overall cost by using steel. It also allowed us to better insulate the units with spray foam insulation and incorporate many upgraded features that standard rooms would not normally include. With more camps being built in remote areas, fire response is a huge concern and so is the need to be able to move a facility at the end of its use cycle. We feel our all-steel dorms help offset those concerns and will be commonplace in the very near future”, stated Harold Clifford, President of Shelter Modular Inc.
