With a need to keep pre-coated aggregate stockpiles dry to optimise the use of aggregate for re-sealing roads, Boral was seeking storage options at its Wellcamp Quarry in Toowoomba, Queensland.
How We Went About It
Allshelter worked closely with Boral to design a storage solution within the space and clearance specifications of the site. The solution needed to provide adequate coverage of the stockpiles as well as safe and easy access and mobility for the loaders.
To suit Boral’s exact requirements, Allshelter designed, engineered, manufactured and delivered six container shelters. The shelters were installed on shipping containers using piers for foundations, and measured: 10m wide x 12m long x 4.4m high.
Allshelter’s CATA1012AIM shelters were used; they are wind rated for individual region needs as designed and calculated by Australian engineers. Made of highly resistant and strong polyethylene fabric, the CATA1012AIM shelters won’t corrode or rust, and they are well ventilated and environmentally adaptive, which was well-aligned with Boral’s brief.
Boral was extremely satisfied with the storage solution provided by Allshelter, and in fact, they are in the process of purchasing two more container domes. They liked the fact that Allshelter’s steel frames are non-corrosive and are easy to dismantle and reassemble, and that the fabric used has ultra violet ray protection allowing large amounts of safe and natural light to enter – even on overcast days. Boral was also impressed by Allshelter’s 10 year frame and fabric warranty.
The expert advice and collaborative approach provided by Allshelter meant that Boral could choose the best shelters to meet their requirements.
“We recently purchased six Allshelter container shelters to cover and weather-protect our pre-coated aggregate supplies. The service we received from Allshelter was excellent, from the ordering, all the way through to the delivery and set up. Their representatives were exceptionally helpful and very professional, answering questions whenever the need arose. We would have no problem recommending Allshelter to anyone seeking a quality product backed by superb customer service and timely delivery. We will do business again with Allshelter if the need arises.”Robert Thomas,
