Shelter on a ShipCase Study
Any Location, Application or Specification
Shelter Works makes custom fiberglass shelters in all shapes and sizes depending on the customer’s need. When we say our buildings are custom designed, we mean it. There is no location, application, or specification that we will think is too weird to tackle. Our staff likes the challenge of custom designing and manufacturing the unique and the interesting.
A typical Shelter Works fiberglass shelter will arrive on-site pre-assembled and ready to ‘drop in place’, but in 2007 we were approached to do something a little different. Our customer, a marine survey company, wanted a shelter to be used as a work-out room on a sailing vessel. They chose fiberglass because they needed a building that could withstand a damp, salt air environment. Due to its final location, underneath the ship’s helicopter pad, the shelter had to be assembled on-site, requiring it to be delivered in pieces along with a custom assembly instruction package.
