Denman Industrial Trailers Ltd. is a premier supplier of high quality housing for people working in drilling, construction, and the oilfield. The camps are designed by people who know life in the energy industry and understand the unique needs of construction and oilfield employees. Upgraded amenities, such as food services, more spacious living quarters, and recreation areas are a Denman standard. In 2005, the land where the company’s largest oilfield camp was sitting was expropriated. Denman had two choices—move the existing camp or build a new one. The team did not waste time with the tendering process when it was decided a brand new camp would be built; Alta-Fab would manufacture the 137 unit camp, working with Denman to incorporate features to create the ultimate living space.
Often, where there is a strengthening in the economy there is a weakening in quality. In this upturn in the economy, however, Alta-Fab’s 35 years of paying close attention to detail, quality design, and team collaboration with their customers has not been traded for shorter deadlines and more dollars. Though some of the trailers Alta-Fab builds have no visual logo or tell-tale colours, their craftsmanship is distinctive. Layouts are original and thoughtfully planned out and executed. With every cabinet perfectly aligned and every screw tight in place, there is nothing left undone; it feels like home. Working hand-in-hand with Alta-Fab, from perfecting prototypes through to tightening the last bolt, Denman maintained their “hotel” like standards and successfully turned a new piece of land into a home for oilfield workers on the Oil Sands Lodge project.
