Ausco Modular are a leading modular building company supplying buildings and camps to the mining & construction industry.

Scope

Ausco were looking to upgrade the design of their mobile camps. For a number of years, Ausco have been constructing their staff quarters with a steel covered walkway in-between the buildings.

Ausco wanted to upgrade the look of their camps to give an edge over competitors, and they felt the Allshelter fabric roof made the camps look more upmarket.

How we went about it

Because the fabric walkway idea was a new one, Allshelter designed & manufactured a special wind-rated and engineered prototype. Testing was done in-house at Allshelter manufacturing facility in Lake Cargelligo, NSW to be able to provide accurate costings and photos for the Ausco to present to their directors. This meant that Allshelter were also able to provide accurate recommendation of men, machinery and hours required to install.

Solution

Once, Ausco were happy with the prototype. To suit Ausco’s exact requirements, Allshelter designed, engineered, manufactured and installed 14 Walkway Shelters 2.4m wide x varying lengths to cover a 300 man camp.

Customised design ensured that Ausco were able install the shelters using a small install team, 3 men. And, able to install without access to the roofs on the portable buildings.

The Shelters were also relocatable & re-usable, wind-rated, and engineered.

Outcome

Ausco liked the fact that the shelter was more cost effective than a steel shelter and that the fabric on the shelter has ultra violet ray protection allowing natural light to enter – even on overcast days. After speaking with some of their customers the feedback they said that they like the fabric roof over the camps because it gave a ‘brighter, more open feel’

The residents of Ausco camps now have a cooler covered recreational area and Ausco saves with lower energy costs to keep the camps cool during the summer months.

Testimonial

We (Ausco) are very happy with the new walkway camps supplied by Allshelter. Allshelter initially worked with us on a prototype to test quality, usability, which saved in turn saved Ausco lots of time & money on R&D. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Allshelter Walkway shelters for future camps. The quality was second to none, and with the 10 year warranty that came with the shelters, this gave us reassurance that we are purchasing quality. Then the ability to be able to reuse & relocate the shelters to future camps was worth more than anything.
