Remote mining and construction camp accommodation

ASL has provided temporary and permanent mining camps and facilities around the world, from the heights of the Chilean Andes, to the rain forests of Gabon, Africa. Our in-house design and engineering team will create a custom solution to meet your needs.

Units manufactured by Tecnofast ATCO in Santiago Chile are transported by truck to install a construction camp for Antamina.
Remote industrial camp accommodations that feel like home help attract and retain employees.

Our modular buildings are designed to withstand extreme temperature and heavy snow loads, and can be transported and installed in the most difficult locations. We look at innovative and energy-efficient ways to build and operate our mining camps in a cost-effective manner.

Although rugged and durable in their construction, ATCO custom-prefabricated modular buildings can be designed to fit in with the environment and offer comfortable and stylish interiors complete with lounges, recreational facilities, gymnasiums and movie theatres.

For your own mine-site camp or with our build-own-operate (BOO) solutions, we provide complete catering and camp services to your organization so you can focus on your project. Even in the most remote locations and extreme climates, ASL will improve the quality of your camp.
