Royal Wolf created a stacked building solution using containers for a gas plant project in the Northern Territory to meet the challenges of limited space on the construction site.

Royal Wolf was contracted by BAM Clough, designers and builders of marine facilities for major resource projects to custom-build two double-storey 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.

Housed on barges, each of the two stacked building solutions comprises of 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 explained that the double-decker stacked approach was employed to help overcome severe space restrictions from having to work on barges.

Given the limited area, Royal Wolf’s team decided that the stacked approach was the best option to create the space needed for BAM Clough workers to operate. 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.

Easily transported and offering practical and cost-effective amenities, space and storage solutions to the construction industry, Royal Wolf containers are suitable for a wide range of applications from site offices and lunch rooms, to ablution blocks, first aid rooms and portable storage of dangerous goods.
