Mumbai-based Habitat n Skins is offering modular and factory assembled housing units for site workers and captive staff at construction sites. The PMRLU is the ideal solution for project developers / contractors looking for housing for their workers. It will also save them time and space, which, if not well planned and managed at the congested jobsites, can lead to delays. Being lightweight, they are easy to transport, quick to assemble and dismantle, and can be easily shifted from site to site without having to make a fresh investment.
The PMRLU is designed by re-using shipping containers, and fitting them with a door, windows, exhaust, insulation, flooring, lights and electrical power points, bunk beds, a toilet cum bath area, and a small pantry. Measuring 20 feet, each unit can house 4 workers.
A unit takes about 15 days to be ready in the factory. Once it is 90% ready, it can be shipped to the construction site and assembled with utility connections within a day or two. Habitat n Skins is offering single as well as multiple units, which can be stacked one above the other, thus saving space at sites. The units are reusable and can be modified for purposes such as isolation during a pandemic.
