Prefab workers’ housing to be built out of cross laminated timber

Modular prefabs have predominated in the fossil fuel camps in Alberta and British Columbia; most last about 15 years before they are worn out. Now Perkins+Will has designed a new unit made out of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT).

The 312 SF unit is designed for a huge 646,000 square foot facility for Nexen CNOOC Limited’s Remote Workforce Accommodation project in Dilly Creek, British Columbia- it must take a lot of people to frack the shale gas up there. They will have a nice and comfy CO2 sequestering wood home in the woods while they pump zillions of gallons of water and additives into Beautiful British Columbia and extract the CO2 producing fossil fuel.
