Williams Scotsman Announces Launch of the Stayover™ by Williams Scotsman Brand, Offering Hospitality-Driven Workforce Accommodation Lodges

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 3, 2015) - Williams Scotsman, North America's leading supplier of workforce accommodations, modular space and storage solutions, is proud to introduce its extended-stay lodge brand, Stayover by Williams Scotsman (Stayover). The first location that will be under the Stayoverumbrella will be the recently renovated Cheecham Lodge, an open lodge property located in the Highway 881 corridor of Alberta's oilsands near Quigley, Alta, with additional properties to be constructed in the near future.

Designed based on feedback from clients, the new Stayover accommodations provide a quiet, restful environment, designed to reduce fatigue-related incidents on the project site. Every element of the new property is planned with the intention of improving worker productivity and decreasing fatigue by tailoring a guest experience that addresses the potential cumulative effects of lifestyle imbalance while on rotation. The result is an experience that more closely resembles a hotel stay than a traditional work camp.

"At Stayover Cheecham Lodge, we want to give employees working in the field the best possible all-inclusive experience for the 12 hours they spend with us each day," says Rick Bennett, Vice President & General Manager of Workforce Accommodations at Williams Scotsman. "We know the little touches make the biggest difference when you're away from home for extended periods and we've worked to make the guest experience as comfortable and inviting as possible."

Some of the unique benefits offered at Stayover Cheecham Lodge include:

  • A 24/7 dining room with elevated food options
  • Housekeeping
  • Free Wi-Fi Internet
  • In-room satellite TV
  • Well-equipped modern fitness centre
  • Recreation facilities, including an XBox® gaming room and movie theatre
  • Personalized HVAC control

"Stayovercaters to our clients' every need and necessity involved with living in remote areas," says Bennett. "Our all-inclusive environment is designed to promote safer, better rested, better fed, and more productive and engaged employees."

Cheecham Lodge, which will retain its name under the Stayover brand, was previously owned and operated by Target Logistics, a fellow subsidiary of Williams Scotsman's parent company, Algeco Scotsman. Target Logistics' Canadian operations consolidated under Williams Scotsman earlier this year.

Cheecham Lodge is currently open and taking reservations. Please visit www.stayover.ca to learn more.

Williams Scotsman will be exhibiting at the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary from June 9-11, 2015. For more information on both Williams Scotsman and Stayover™, please stop by booth number 4530 located in the Big Four - Upper Level.
