Qatar Office Block

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED:
Qatar Operations Offices - 182 UNITS, 8 OFFICE BLOCKS IN 30 DAYS


Prefab Building Solutions has just completed a major contract in Doha, Qatar with the delivery of 182 prefabricated units for the new operations offices.

The prefab buildings, delivered in November 2015, were all flat packed with interior wiring installed for ease of on site installation. The end product, 8 separate office buildings with a total of 2,708m2, was erected and ready for use in only 1 month's time after delivery.

In addition to providing and erecting the flat packed buildings, PBS technical staff were onsite well before any of the work including procurement began.

This is the PBS standard procedure meant to ensure that the project is professionally evaluated so as to adequately capture the needs and scope with the goal of correctly advising the procurement and supply process on the products and services needed.

Katanga District Congo

KITANGA DISTRICT, CONGO - PREFAB PLUG & PLAY WITHOUT BORDERS


End of 2015 PBS delivered 2 sample fold-it prefab houses (1 x 50sqm and 1 x 100sqm) to Kolwezi in southern DRC.

The high quality finish houses were transported to the site and built in 5 days on ready made foundations by a team of local workers.

The centralized wet areas, the kitchen, cupboards and wardrobes as well as all electrical installations and ACs were pre-installed in order to provide a plug and play solution once the walls and floors had been installed.

The fold-it prefab houses were delivered in one single container each thereby achieving ample savings on transport and logistics.

The plug and play concept is in line with the PBS mission and goal of providing low-cost and viable, prefabricated buildings solutions, that can be hauled even to the remotest parts of the world, with quick installation.

Kolwezi is a city in Katanga Province in the south of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The city is an important mining center and home to an airport and a railway to Lubumbashi. As always, PBS provided full logistical support from factory to site, as well as the supervision of the entire construction.

Fold It Houses

THE PBS FOLD IT HOUSE - WHAT EXACTLY IS A FOLD IT HOUSE


The Fold It prefab house with its easy to assembly qualities and ingenious economic packaging is the prefabrocated building solution of choice when the going gets rough and fast action is key.

The Fold It is a turnkey solution entirely prefabricated, flat packed, shipped to site and seamlessly unfolded by a maximum of 5 (unskilled) workers. While other modular prefab container homes require more complex on site installations, the Fold It only requires on site component connecting, which can be done in 5 days only.

The unique hybrid system between fully modular construction and flat pack systems allows complex areas such as bathrooms and electrical wiring to be completed in the factory with only the floor, wall and roof erection to be done on site with 5 days to build and move in.

The Fold It prefab system allows us to deliver the quality finishes of a fully modular buildings system while also gaining the shipping efficiencies that come with Fold It House and flat pack products. This is ideal when transport efficiency is key in remote areas particularly.

CONCEPTUAL USES

The ‘Fold It’ house’s ease of quick assembly and disassembly, relocation and transportation makes it most suitable for rapid deployment and entry level projects e.g.

  • Road & Heavy Industry Construction where relocation of housing is key
  • Remote Oil, Gas and Mining projects
  • Harsh terrain projects
  • Disaster & Relief Housing, where fast erecting, cost effective turnkey solutions are of essence.
