How a relocatable dome shelter saves Burdett Sands $50,000 during Quarry Expansion


Burdett’s ‘the best name in the dirt game’ The Burdett Group has proudly been in operation for over 40 years. Burdett’s have 2 quarries where they mine their sand & gravel in Langwarrin VIC.


Burdett Sands had to remove some steel sheds from their quarry operation because they were sitting on sterilised reserve of the quarry.

Burdett needed a reliable shed solution that could be relocated around the quarry, to allow for future growth and expansion on the quarry. To save wasting money, they need a quality relocatable structure that could be dismantled, moved and re-installed the structure.


To suit the relocatable shelter requirements, Burdett Sands, choose an Allshelter CASA1212OM Dome Shelter mounted on shipping containers.

The Allshelter Container Shelter can be dismantled and packed away and moved with the shipping containers to a more suitable location in the quarry when they need to move it during future quarry expansion.

Quality & Reliability were two factors which gave Allshelter dome container shelter choice the cutting edge. Being covered by a 10 year warranty, meant that Burdett Sands could be assured that Allshelter was confident with their product. And, with 16 years in the relocatable Dome shelter business, they knew that they weren’t alone when choosing a reliable product.


Burdett Sands liked the fact that the portable shelter was more cost effective than a steel shelter and that the shelter can be relocated around the site on the quarry – further cost savings.

The shelter serves as a workshop & wash bay on site, easily gives room for two trucks under the shelter at one time. The team can now have a shelter close by their work, without interfering on any sensitive quarry reserve.

The quality and flexible shipping container shelter solution provided by Allshelter means that Burdett Sands will continue to save costs with the ability to reuse existing infrastructure throughout any quarry expansion.


To have the ability to move it, instead of building at 60k shed, and then when we leave the site we can pack it up and take it to next site. It was an excellent choice for a portable shed but with all the necessities of permanent shed. Thank-you!
