Traditional steel buildings were considered but were far more expensive than the Fabric Shelters provided by DomeShelter Australia.
DomeShelter Australia were able to design and manufacture eleven Fabric Shelters with end walls and doors and deliver to site for installation by a team of three in just three weeks. They were mounted on standard 40ft sea containers, which were pre-filled with existing sand supplies already existing on the site as ballast. Each shelter was inter-connected and linked to custom built guttering. Special louvred barn doors were fitted that catered to the wind conditions but kept the shelters waterproofed.
Special fire retardant fabric was used to meet the clients safety requirements.
