For over 30 years, the mining industry has chosen Honco for the manufacturing and construction of steel buildings or for more complex turnkey projects. Our expertise is used on metals and minerals extraction and transformation sites, as well as in the oil sector and on hydroelectric power development sites.

Our continued presence in northern regions has allowed our team to develop unique organization and planning strategies that are adapted to remote sites.

Honco actively participates in the layout of new mining sites while responding to the industry’s specific needs through a tight management of deadlines and compliance with safety standards.

An expert in mining site logistics and organization, Honco will strictly manage all aspects of its assignment.

Respect for safety standards, delays and budgets are also part of this rigorous approach.

Thanks to its versatile steel construction system, Honco is able to offer you a building structure that meets your specific needs.

Our prefabricated steel building offers a very large clear span at a competitive cost. The unique design of the Honco structure eliminates the need for structural elements along the walls.

Handling equipment that is required to perform standard industrial procedures, for example overhead cranes, monorails or jib cranes, can be incorporated to the Honco structure.

Finally, due to its design, the Honco building can be expanded in the future if needed.

Honco’s construction system differs from other systems in the steel building industry due to its unbeatable energy efficiency and reduced operational costs.

In addition to using a superior insulation method that produces no thermal bridge, the energy efficiency of the building itself is optimized by integrating a Galvalume finish on the structural ceiling, which reflects light and has a low level of radiant heat emissivity. This reduces the volume of unused space, resulting in lower cooling and heating costs.

The energy efficiency of Honco’s building envelope is also optimized thanks to its well-ventilated attic and its light reflecting ceiling.

Finally, the Galvalume finish on the structural ceiling reflects light and ensures a high level of light which also reduces costs.

Operational savings can exceed 30% per year.

THE BENEFITS OF HONCO BUILDINGS FOR YOUR MINING PROJECTS

1
A PERFECTLY SEALED ROOF THAT REFLECTS OUTSIDE HEAT

The roof panels, made of steel, are perfectly sealed and guarantee the building’s protection against leaks during heavy rain storms. The roof is also made of a type of steel that reflects heat through radiation, reducing the building’s operational costs.

A STRUCTURAL CEILING

Honco’s structural ceiling allows the truly useful space to be separated from the building’s total volume. This reduces the building’s cooling and heating costs. The attic’s ventilation system ensures the efficiency of the ceiling’s insulation and eliminates condensation.

LOW-COST SHIPPING

Honco buildings can quickly be shipped anywhere around the world. Structural panels can be stacked on top of each other. This means that all of the building materials necessary for a Honco building measuring 480 m2 can be transported in a 12-metre-long container.

HIGH ENERGY EFFICIENCY

The efficient wall and attic insulation ensures an environment that provides both high energy efficiency and top performance.

3
MODIFIABLE BUILDINGS

The construction components are assembled with bolts, which means the building can easily be assembled and disassembled on a new site or modified to install new equipment.

4
LESS EXPENSIVE FOUNDATIONS

Honco’s self-supporting buildings do not have a concentrated load, so their structure does not require a massive foundation. The recommended width of foundation walls is only 200 to 250 mm.

2
CLEAR SPAN UP TO 90 M.

Honco buildings offer clear spans up to 90 metres, depending on the region, while remaining the most affordable on the market.

8
FAST INSTALLATION

Our ready-to-install construction components are shipped directly to the site. Because all of our components are assembled with bolts, no welding is necessary. Up to 6-8 modules (wall-ceiling-roof), each 1 metre wide, can be assembled per day.
