FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Below you will find answers to the most common remote basic camp questions. If you have a question not answered here, please feel free to contact us via e-mail or telephone.

How long does it take to set up a camp?
During Hurricane Sandy we provided the National Guard medical team with their support equipment, laundry, and shower & restroom trailers. Because the National Guard had set up emergency medical tents, were able to set up in less than two hours. The amount of time a camp takes to set up is completely dependent on the environment. Some camps are extremely remote and those will take longer than a camp that has water and power sources nearby.

Are there limits to 'where' a remote camp can be set up?
Yes and no. There's always a solution, but some are more challenging than others. For instance, if a tented camp is requested and the site happens to a granite based mountain, well, it can be done, but the logistics required may prove to be costly. We have actually had this situation and were able to meet the need, but it took additional time to turn the camp over. Most camps are relatively easy to set up.

Do you have camps that can relocated for pipeline work?
Absolutely. Our relocatable trailers and containers are easily moved to accommodate a working crew’s needs.

Do your remote camps have onsite staff?
Turnkey services are optional but certainly available. Many customers prefer turnkey full service camps including staffed kitchens, housekeeping and laundry staff. Potable & vacuum trucks generally are rented with an operator.

Is your equipment winterized?
Not all, but much of our equipment is fully winterized allowing us to perform in the coldest conditions.
