Karmod new generation container was preferred for department of passport by Nigeria Ministry of Interior. Special roof system was used at design of the building established next to Police Department in the capital Abuja. Main purpose of this special roof model in the container office designed within the scope of the project is functionally providing placement of solar energy storage panels on the building. With these panels placed on the roof, illumunation and other needs of the container office will be meet easily.
The container office building will be used as data collection center right along with passport delivery. Fully demounted 3x7 meters container units that were produced at Karmod modern facilities were used within the scope of the project. This is one of the most important differences that distinguish Karmod fully demounted living container systems from other container models. The new generation offers at least 7 more square meters wider space alternative compared to its similar ones. When the other demounted productions are produced as 230x595 cm and cannot exceed 13.7 square meters because of the sea container shipping standard limitations, Karmod fully demounted enables to dispatch 21, 27, 29 and 48 square meters wide spaces in international shipping standards and install all over the world. Because Karmod container is produced with unwelded screwed system. In this system, buildings are produced with discrete manufacturing and by this means the main restriction, size problem has been overcome.
6 3x7 fully demounted units were used for the container Passport Department we installed at Abuja. The Passport Department that has been installed with bolted system and jointed container model has 126 square meters size in total.
10 passport officers can work at the container office. There are 5 seperate workrooms with counter service hall inside the building. At the main hall where the waiting chairs are located, there can be 75 people for passport service at the same time. There are sink and wc areas with the little kitchen at the passport office.
