Geraldton Boat Lifters Shed20 August 2018
Geraldton Boat Lifters needed a facility to service their clients vessels. To successfully deliver their
service offering, the building required had specific criteria that needed to be considered to ensure
Auspan worked closely with the Geraldton Boat Lifters team and a builder they were working with (Bell Construction) to deliver exactly what they required. This included designing the main opening into the building to have the correct clearances with a reliable door system, ventilation and also considering
corrosion aspects due to the location of the building.
Designing the quad track sliding door system to make sure it was the right balance between strength and being reliable / easy to use (works great with excellent feedback on the system). Installing a shed this tall in a windy coastal location, using the AUSPAN Roof Lift method meant that the roof was
completely sheeted and braced at ground level before standing the shed – the install team did a great job
- Quad track 13.5m(h) sliding door system
- Sliding door out rigger system to allow the full end of the shed to be opened
- Ridge and wall vents to maintain good working environment
- High spec marine grade paint coating to main opening frame and external steel work.
AUSPAN Project Manager Testimonial
Interesting project to be involved in and great to deliver another custom building designed to suit the clients exact requirements.
A rewarding project to win over against another supplier that was using imported steel fabricated overseas. AUSPAN’s industry leading designs and processes meant the project was designed and fabricated in Western Australia.
Mike Richardson, Sales Consultant
The turnaround time for getting the whole shed fabricated and delivered to sight was
extremely fast and we had a good run with getting it installed in such windy conditions here in Geraldton.
