This garage provides a space to maintain and repair field equipment and building systems. The maintenance workshop has an overhead travelling bridge crane.
Science and technology equipment, vehicles, dry goods and consumables can be stored in spaces that are temperature controlled (4°C minimum).
This facility allows field workers to prepare necessary equipment such as wet suits, scuba tanks, and marine exploration equipment. After returning from a dive, workers can rinse, dry, and maintain and store their diving equipment, and refill scuba tanks with compressed air.
This small lab is designed for cutting, grinding, and processing rock samples.
This workshop supports general carpentry in support of fieldwork and maintenance.
This room is placed directly below compost toilets and used to collect composting material which is removed to the landfill or municipal sewage system.
This is the first room field workers enter when returning from the field, and allows them to clean their tents and let equipment dry (before storing). It is a big open space with minimal heating.
Rough overflow space
As part of the maintenance/field building, the rough overflow space allows scientists to start processing scientific material from the field. They can divide their samples here before transporting them into the station's labs. This space is used mainly during peak summer-season.
The Field and Maintenance Building also houses the mechanical systems for the CHARS campus.
