The MGA With An Attitude

Typical residence halls at Prudhoe Bay. These prefab units are built on pilings (stilts) to prevent melting of the permafrost when they are installed as stationary buildings. The ones shown here (in storage) are mobile, either on wheels of on skids, so they can be relocated in the oil fields as the drilling sites change.
