Australia?s Marathon Group has designed, built and patented the buildings that are made of welded steel and have retractable lifting lugs for manoeuvrability. They can be moved with a forklift, crane or hiab.
The buildings ensure the well being of workers who may otherwise face workplace OHS problems due to inadequate rest.
The huts have five self-contained rooms with 250mm thick walls and floors and are insulated against noise and temperature. They are designed with sound barriers to eliminate the sound of trucks or heavy vehicles passing.
The internal colour scheme draws on a specialised analysis of what colours work to encourage rest in workplace conditions such as those posed by mining and construction.
