Abstract

This study compiles information on the different construction systems used in mining camps in Peru in order to determine guidelines and criteria for architectural design and their different construction systems, considering improving the quality of life, comfort and optimal development of social activities that are made there. The particular case study is located in Quellaveco, Moquegua Region in southern Peru, and the “Las Bambas” mining camp located in the Apurímac Region will also be used as an example for comparison. The research has made it possible to identify the main variables that make up the design of its architecture, modular concepts and the use of different construction systems and to propose design recommendations that can be implemented to improve comfort.
