Construction and engineering teams working on marine builds with restricted site footprints are the latest wave of customers to benefit from innovative containerised amenities and storage solutions thanks to Royal Wolf. Contracted by BAM Clough, designers and builders of marine facilities for major resource projects, Royal Wolf delivered two custom-built, double-story installations to cater for those working on the construction of a Modular Offloading Facility – a floating pier where tanker ships will berth to be filled – at the Inpex Gas Plant site in Blaydin Point. The stacked building solutions were housed on two barges, and each comprised a 20 foot office space, two 20 foot lunchrooms and two 10 foot ablution containers with cantilevered platforms, balustrade, support poles and stairs. A 20 foot first aid room was also included in the installation.
Royal Wolf State Manager for the Northern Territory, Scott Willman, said the double-decker approach was used to help overcome severe space restrictions due to the need to work from barges. “With such a limited area, our team decided the best option was to go up to create the space needed for BAM Clough workers to operate. The outcome was a creative, simple, stable and compliant structure with first-class facilities,” he said. He said the Royal Wolf build also took into account tie-down requirements due to the region’s cyclone rating, and was a great example of the way shipping containers can be modified to meet a range of needs across sectors. Royal Wolf containers are easily transported and offer practical and cost effective amenities, space and storage solutions to the construction industry. They are suitable for a wide range of applications, from site offices and lunch rooms, to ablution blocks, first aid rooms and the portable storage of dangerous goods.
