Remote Camp Systems

Camp Systems Create Mini-Cities In Remote Locations

When camp expeditors like Alaska Minerals, Discovery Mining Services and Tiaga Ventures are tasked with creating mini-cities where no infrastructure exists in remote places like Northern Canada, the North Slope of Alaska, Everest Base Camp at 17,500’ elevation, or the scorching deserts of Africa, they rely on Alaska Structures® proven ability to provide fully scalable remote camps. Whether it is a 4-person exploration camp for the mineral exploration industry or a 1,500-person construction camp that requires workforce housing, portable kitchens and a number of on-site storage buildings – each Alaska Structures camp building is specifically engineered to offer an unmatched level of safety, durability, customization, and rapid installation in remote and extreme areas anywhere in the world.

Going For Gold. Alaska Structures' Camp Systems

We got our start by producing fully engineered fabric buildings capable of withstanding heavy snow loads and high winds in extreme cold climates. Since 1975, we have field-tested over 65,000 tensioned fabric structures in over 85 countries and expanded our camp shelter capability to include not only cold-weather camps and polar camps but also desert camps, tropical camps, and jungle camps. No other company has the proven success or the experience of providing more camp buildings than Alaska Structures. If there were such a thing as a “gold standard” for fabric buildings and camp systems, the title would go to Alaska Structures. Let our camp expertise with over 40+ years of experience help design the ultimate camp solution to meet your exact camp requirements.

The Details Of An Engineered Camp System

When it comes to safety, it’s hard to know who to trust. More and more fabric structures are now marketed as “engineered”. But what does this mean? If all fabric structure companies are now producing engineered fabric structures, then all of them must be safe for use, correct? The short answer is ‘No!’.

At the most basic level, and the method the majority of fabric structure companies use is called a linear elastic portal frame analysis. This is performed by software during the engineering phase of the project and is cause for concern, as it based on many assumptions and does not accurately predict the amount of force applied to each point of the structure.

The next level of fabric structure engineering involves creating a detailed three-dimensional (3D) nonlinear finite element model to study the response and predict the behavior of fabric structures. This process is better at predicting simulated loads and stresses. Due to the time and cost required to generate detailed models, this method is cost prohibitive for most fabric structure companies to do with every model they produce.

Alaska Structures takes a unique approach to engineering. To ensure the highest level of safety and durability, enabling our fabric buildings and camp systems to endure the most extreme and harshest conditions on the planet, to go above and beyond what other fabric structure companies do - we not only have an in-house engineering department that utilizes the 3D nonlinear finite element model analysis, but require a third-party engineering firm verify and approve all of our engineering. Thus ensuring we are providing the safest and most durable fabric buildings on the market.

All Alaska Structures are designed and engineered to meet local and international building codes.
