MINING OPERATIONS WAREHOUSE IN THE PILBARA.



CHEVRON PROJECT. PILBARA. WA.


Chevron needed a storage facility for their mining equipment in the Pilbara, WA.


They required a warehouse on a lease basis, so that the structure could be easily removed at the end of the lease.

The solution needed to be cost-effective and have the look, feel and properties of a permanent building without the associated costs. Australian Temporary Structures provided Chevron with an 80m x 50m 400m2 industrial LX Series Warehouse under a permanent DA.


The structure featured other accessories for easy access and use:


- Steel sheet walling

- Cyclone footings

- Lighting

- Power

- A high roof

- 8 personnel doors

- 14 roller doors to enable easy vehicle access.





Withstanding the Pilbara’s extreme weather conditions:

The challenge was compounded by the structure’s location in the highest wind region of Australia. It needed to withstand cyclones in excess of 280klm hr winds. The materials to be stored could not be left exposed to the elements particularly UV light and moisture.

When a cyclone struck the Pilbara in January 2019, the durable LX Series structure withstood the extreme wind conditions, just as it was intended. Australian Temporary Structures meet stringent wind and temperature loading codes. These German engineered structures are built to comply with maximum wind speeds of up to 300 km per hour. They are engineered to meet regional building code requirements according to BS6399 / Euro codes / IBC 2012.



What else makes the structure so durable?

The LX Series eaves are connected by internal galvanised steel inserts. The structure is made of European, hard pressed extruded structural aluminium, with connecting components CE Certified, hot dipped, structural grade corrosive resistant galvanised steel.

The roof covering is a highly durable industrial grade, high gloss white, PVC coated polyester fabric - UV resistant and flame retardant according to: DIN 4102 B1, M2; BS 5438/7837; USA NFPA701.

This material makes the LX Series structure capable of handling extreme high wind gusts, as well as extreme temperatures, such as what was required in the Pilbara. The material is also UV resistant, making it an all-round fitting solution for Chevron.



Leaping the Hurdles

Australian Temporary Structures offer a flexible solution to many different challenges facing mining operations. Using the LX Series structure allows for installation without a foundation, and the ability to remove the structure as necessary.

The durable material can protect equipment and operations from the harsh climate often encountered at Australia’s major mining sites, and the available accessories associated with the LX Series makes it possible to build a durable, multi-purpose structure.

Chevron chose the LX Series structure because of its durability, flexibility, and variety of product options, and because they needed a bespoke solution delivered within a tight timeframe. The entire project took just ten weeks to construct from start to finish.
