Sea can shipping containers change the game when it comes to constructing affordable and sustainable fabric structures for all your commercial and industrial mining needs

For starters, they serve as a great storage option and offer a place of shelter from the elements at job sites. They’re also a cost-effective building foundation, and make the structure a low-cost investment in comparison to traditional buildings. This can also lower operational needs to save your company money.

Depending on a mining client’s specific needs the shipping container foundation can either be a permanent, temporary, or portable option. Mining clients tend to favour using a shipping container foundation because of its storage benefits. The fact that the entire building can be easily relocated if necessary helps clients who operate at multiple sites over time.

Portable Structures for Mining Operations

Companies like Cobra Structures offer engineered portable shelters for temporary building sites that are quick to install, even in remote areas. The extra high unobstructed clearances accommodate large and heavy equipment easily and allow you to maximize cubic storage.

In between the shipping container foundation, the bright natural light in a fabric structure creates safe, shadow-free working environments and reduces operating costs. Fabric buildings are easily expanded, deconstructed or relocated, but are engineered and designed for the entire life of the worksite.

Fabric structures can go on a variety of portable and temporary foundation styles such as shipping containers. This gives clients the flexibility to operate, relocate or deconstruct a building when finished at the job site.
