The Brief – A Workshop for Mining Equipment
With mid to high temperatures year round, Vitrinite required a temporary on-site workshop. They needed a functional, efficient and durable sheltered area to service mining trucks and excavators that could withstand the demands of a remote environment.
After working with the Vitrinite team, we offered a fabric shelter that could assist them with their shelter needs. Our solution was:
- An outside mounted container shelter measuring 18m wide x 24.38m long x 12.10m high.
- Engineered to Wind Region B – Withstanding winds of up to 177.5km/hr
- Made from high-grade galvanised structural steel framing and Straatex®️ 9300 High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) fabric.
- Custom banner measuring 11.9m long x 2.87m high
With an existing professional relationship with a maintenance manager on-site, our product was recommended. While facing price competition from another shelter provider, Allshelter ensured a competitive offer, demonstrating our commitment to meeting Vitrinite’s needs effectively.
Installing the fabric shelter proved to help Vitrinite with its on-site servicing capabilities significantly. The workshop exceeded their expectations, now a permanent shelter, providing a reliable space for maintaining their mining machinery. The success of this shelter underlines the importance of quality infrastructure in the mining industry, showcasing how a well-designed workspace can enhance efficiency and productivity in a challenging environment.
