Containerized Transportable Modular Buildings (Dongas)

Portable Buildings

Motive Traction Pty Ltd has partnered with a Leading company specializing in designing, manufacturing and construction of prefabricated housing. Motive Traction can supply a range containerized modules from single container self contained accommodation right through to multi container offices and accommodation blocks. By using traditional container based designs and container lifting points, units can easily be moved with standard container handling equipment.
Units can be locked together to form larger structures both single story and double story such as houses, offices or even two story accommodation blocks.
Commonly known in the industry as "Dongas", modular or transportable buildings used in remote housing accommodation villages, is now an important part of the mining and construction industry.  From a single a self contained unit through to modules (often called complexes) of grouped units, the traditional "Donga" is nowdays more comfortable, some more recent designs could even be termed as luxurious.
Units are of steel construction, fully insulated and come with electrical and plumbing. Units arrive flat packed on site, ready for assembly. Six skilled workers can finish three modular units in a day.
Our range includes Dongas, stockman quarters, mess huts, ablution blocks, site offices and mining accommodation.
If required, custom designed containers can be made to any specifications to suit and purpose.

Some of the projects completed by the manufacturer include:-
  • 2000 person Mine Camp in Papua New Guinea (25,000 square meters) 
  • Olympic Games Housing in China (45,000 square meters) 
  • Saudi Arabia Oil Refinery Housing Project (9,000 square meters) 
  • Algeria Expressway Housing Project (30,581 square meters) 
  • Mining Camp in Zambia (15,000 square meters)

The term "Donga" originates from Papua New Guinea, where donga means 'house'
