Working in the field is tough, whether you’re out mining, shipping or operating any kind of business that requires you to be relatively off the grid. Logistically speaking, you need to ensure that you have a steady stream of the resources you need as well as the ability to maintain any equipment you need on site.
One of the main frustrations of being away from major population centers is the absence of proper workshops and spaces in which to carry out repairs of equipment or to store resources. If you’re working on a pipeline in the outback, then the chances of having permanent structures anywhere nearby for you to do maintenance in or use for storage are slim to none. One very applicable solution is using container shelters or container sheds adapted from shipping containers.
