It took years to come up with the technology to get the oil out of the ground in the Bakken. But once they did, we only had 75 days to get the 249-bed Williston North Lodge built and operating. While the exterior was constructed to endure the harsh Dakotan winters, the interiors were built with the comfort of the worker in mind. Unlike the typical Williston man camp, our lodge has all the comforts of home like pillow-top mattresses, high-thread-count sheets and pillow cases, a TV lounge, Internet café and a rec room — everything to keep the oil field workforce happy. And to keep them safe, we recommended and installed a proprietary security system that utilized proximity cards for entry to the camp, the dining rooms and all bedrooms.

Key Challenges

Short timetable. Extreme temperatures and winds.

The Extra Mile

To make it easier for our guests to communicate with friends and loved ones, we installed a cell tower to enhance mobile phone reception in remote North Dakota.
