Black-Gold Rush Fuels Housing Demand in Oil-Rich States

Target Logistic expanded its Bear Paw Lodge in North Dakota by more than 150 beds last December. Guerdon Enterprises, the modular home manufacturer, supplied the modules for this facility.

Target's housing allows workers access to rooms, dining areas and other parts of the campus without going outside.

Canada-based ATCO Structures and Logistics operates two manufacturing facilities in Texas where it assembles workforce housing.

Turnkey providers of remote workforce housing typically include kitchens and dining areas for workers living in their camps.

The more sophisticated camps offer dormitory-style living in a safe, well-lighed environment.
