Modular Workforce Camps


Outland has been supplying remote modular work camps since 1985.

Modular camps (also referred to as modular buildings, trailer units, workforce camps, construction camps) are manufactured off -site and transported when ready for installation.    As conditions become more extreme and remote, modular camps offer a cost-saving alternative to fully permanent structures built on site.     Other advantages of modular construction are reduced site disruption and environmental impact noise, and increased mobility.   Modular work camps can also be re-used and expanded.   

Outland designs, manufactures and installs complete modular work camps for remote sites.   These work camps are built at off-site manufacturing facilities and can be shipped by sea, rail or road to anywhere in Canada (or the world). We supply full work camp solutions including:

  • Turn Key remote housing from 50 to 1,000+ people
  • Kitchen complexes
  • Administrative offices 
  • Recreation complexes
  • Construction work camps
  • Management Quarters
  • Mine Drys
  • Modular Offices
  • Bunk Houses/Wet Sleepers in various configurations

Outland also offers turn key remote catering, installation, and logistics  services  anywhere in Canada.

Modular buildings - Ideal for Work Camps

Outland's modular work camps are made of prefabricated buildings which have been built in remote facilities and then delivered on site. The modules are assembled into a single residential building using a combination of cranes and trucks.  They are then "seamed" together to form a fully enclosed complex.  Clients choose this solution when there is no locally available, affordable housing.    Modular workforce housing is an ideal application for remote work camps because they are customizable and can be installed and mobilized relatively quickly.  The key advantage of modular construction is its flexibility in all environments.   Modular work camp construction is used around the world.  In Canada it is primarily used by the resource sector in the north and far north where there is little or no access to alternative accommodation.  These camps are self-contained with all catering and housekeeping being done on site. 

Modular Building Uses

Modular buildings are used primarily for workforce housing in a variety industries.  They may be used for long-term, temporary or permanent workforce housing facilities, such as construction camps, mining camps, oil and gas camps, and utility projects.   The buildings are used in remote and rural areas where conventional construction may not be reasonable or possible.   The work camps will often be used for as little as 3 months or 10 years or more.   Often work camps will be re-used multiple times over a 10 or 15 year period on different projects.

Evolution of Work Camps

In response to a skilled trade shortage in Canada clients have been choosing work camps with better amenities to attract and retain staff.   Double occupancy dorms with gang style washrooms are often replaced with private dorms with private washrooms or "Jack and Jill" style configurations.    Outland works with its clients to choose the best work camp configuration.  We provide clients with the optimum work camp solution that balances cost with staff comfort. 

Advantages of Modular Construction for Work Camps

There are many advantages to modular camp construction for work camps including:
