Brazil faced unlimited liability for all environmental damage resulting from the fire. The purpose of the project was to house up to 66 personnel. Burnaby-based Weatherhaven Canada Resources was selected to provide services for the design. The layout consisted of HERCon modules outfitted at the factory with equipment. manufacture.

Project requirements imposed design constraints for wind velocities and snow loads. part of the South Shetlands chain in Antarctica. Brazil had to take immediate action to remediate actual damage and mitigate further damage. Weatherhaven was selected for its expertise in polar climes. manufacture. with the main living complex erected on the surface of the existing helipad. and on the technical merits of the proposed complex. Chilean and Polish personnel rescued the survivors and assisted in the recovery efforts. waste management obligations in compliance with the Antarctic Treaty. SECIRM was interested in Weatherhaven’s solution due to the advantages of its patented HERCon™. scientists and researchers. constructs. Specializing in the design.
and conferred with Brazilian Naval engineers prior to acceptance of the design. so minimizing the number of required containers was also important. Antarctica’s unique flora and fauna are protected by onerous restrictions of the Antarctic Treaty. Supplemental insulation for the HERCons required an innovative approach for simple field installation to the exterior of the modules in harsh conditions. and occupancy for the client. steel support structure. Twelve HERCons when deployed provided a total usable floor space of 4. One major challenge for Weatherhaven’s engineering department was to confirm the ability of the existing helipad to withstand the loads transferred from the modules erected on the helipad decking to 30-year-old footings constructed on the gravel beach. Weatherhaven’s Construction Manager flew from Burnaby to Antarctica to inspect the helipad steel deck plating.Eng. There was also concern about potential degradation of the helipad integrity after 30 years exposure to the elements. crane mounted on a tracked vehicle.

To mitigate risk. significantly reducing the number of containers. Weatherhaven provided 366 square feet of usable floor space per module. insulated cribbing to thermally insulate the modules from the steel decking of the helipad.392 square feet—the equivalent of 36 ISO containers.

During design. conducted Finite Element Analysis on the complex and structure. distance and expense of deploying them to site and supporting them. The HERCon containers were used for modules requiring large usable floor space equipped with integrated furnishings or features—plumbed sinks.. P. an approach which provided shipping efficiencies by reducing container count. Using 20-foot modules for the complex minimized foundation work requiring excavation. Each shipping container was unloaded according to a preplanned sequence and transported to shore by barge by Brazilian Navy personnel. These were connected with a corridor or spine constructed of standard shipping containers fitted with doors and insulation to create one contiguous living complex.. movement of heavy equipment at site and excavation and foundation work had to be minimized. including commissioning of electrical power generation and reticulation. taking three men less than one hour to fully deploy and secure each i n novation M a y/ J u n e 2 013 21 . during which he drilled test holes in the decking.

Because the HERCon deploys from a standard 8-foot by 20-foot shipping container configuration to an open-plan unit. kitchen make up air unit. his total allowed time at site was 12 minutes. Site crew constructed construction was completed in 28 days. Making multiple trips to and from Chile was not an option. snow and ice-loading issues are exacerbated by the freeze-thaw cycle. With temperatures ranging between -28 º C and +16º C. cabinetry.Eng. The total number of containers sent to site was 39. Schedule delays could not be compensated for by simply increasing the amount of workers on the project. Heavy snowfalls also require ongoing shoveling of the roofs and around the modules. environmental and climactic conditions had to be considered. and concrete footings. and maximized space utilization on the helipad. and kitchen equipment. particularly aggressive corrosion from marine salt-spray. The author was sent to South Africa last fall to assist the plant with design changes required to meet the snow loading and wind loading conditions. infamous for making passengers and crew alike violently seasick. Further. and inspected and photographed the support structure and footings. driving the design to minimize the footprint. to site involves a four-day transit of the Drake Passage. One key advantage of the camp design was the small number of containers required for such a sophisticated complex. toilets. nor did transit time and weather make this viable. The HERCon required many design changes due to the project requirements. The containers were then positioned onto the ABOVE: Modules being loaded on to a helipad using a boom barge for transport to the site. weight limitations on each module were restricted by the load-carrying capacities of the unloading crane and barge used to transport each container from ship to shore. potable water treatment. developed cross bracing supports for the HERCon core roofs and swing roofs to enhance the modules’ capability to withstand expected snow loading. The Brazilian Navy chartered a ship specifically for this mission. Furnishings and equipment were secured inside the HERCons prior to shipment. When the high logistical cost and effort to transport containers to site is considered. and constantly shifting wind directions had to be considered. However. Landing by military helicopter with sustained 90 km/h winds. Chile. The BELOW: Temporary base deployed on and around the existing helipad.
