Green Series: Going Digital and Reducing Paper Use

Jul 26, 2020

As Pilbara locals, our team are passionate about doing the best we can for our local environment to ensure it’s around for many future generations to enjoy. In recent months the Pilbara Sheds blog has turned green, we are bringing to light some of the small practices we have put into place to do our bit to build a sustainable future for our community. As a part of our commitment to this cause we have made a number of changes to our business practices, including bringing as much of our daily operations online in an effort to reduce our paper consumption.


How Much Paper Does Australia Consume?

Let’s be real, most of the leading nations across the world have an extremely high paper consumption. Earth Greetings suggests that “Australians consume around four million tonnes of paper and paperboard each year – an amount that equals nearly 200kg per person”. Paper use has been on the rise, and this increase has a domino effect onto our environment. 


Going Digital To Reduce Our Paper Use

There are a number of small changes we have made within our business to reduce our overall paper consumption. We chose to recycle all paper and paper materials where possible in an attempt to do our bit with the paper that we absolutely have to use to run our business.

However, one of the bigger changes we have made as a business is to do as much of our business activities online in an effort to reduce our paper use. Last year we launched the new Pilbara Sheds website. On our new platforms we included a detailed Quote Form. 

Our online quoting system gives you the ability to fill in as much information as possible about your dream shed before we provide you with a detailed quote. Once you have sent through your quote request someone from our team will be in touch within 24 hours with the pricing for a shed that matches your requirements.

Having our quoting system online is not only a great way to reduce our paper use within the office, but it also means you can get the ball rolling on your next project sooner rather than later. Our online quoting system was a step toward bringing our business online and reducing our office paper use as much as possible.

Our Product Range

Are you a local school or sporting organisation in need of high quality and cost-effective sheds? Well, Pilbara Sheds are here to help! With years of experience working with the local Pilbara community, we have built a name for ourselves providing storage space that suits every budget in an educational or sporting environment. Here are a few of our frequently asked questions when it comes to our school and sporting sheds to show you that Pilbara Shed are the best to work with when it comes to installing your next shed.


What kind of schools and sporting organisations do you work with?

Our experience within the local community extends from junior sporting clubs and primary schools, to larger groups and local high schools. We have worked with a number of local organisations in the area to build their perfect shed!


Do you understand the unique requirements of schools and organisations?

Of course! We are able to provide your organisation with hands on, insider knowledge of products that are suitable and best used with an educational and sporting environment. We know that school and sporting storage differs depending on its intended purpose, and we can customise your shed to suit its intended purpose


We have a strict budget, can you work to that?

We sure can! Both public and private schools have budgets they need to adhere too, and we completely understand that you will have a limit on what you’re able to spend. We will work with you to design a shed that isn’t only high quality, but also cost-effective within the set budget you have available. 


Are your sheds built for the Pilbara environment?

As Pilbara locals, we know the importance of building a school or sport shed that is able to withstand the Pilbara elements. Safety and durability is at the forefront of our shed builds, so when you purchase one of our sheds, you can be rest assured that it’s built for what ever the Pilbara can throw at it. 


Can we include storage solutions in our design?

Unlike a residential or commercial shed, school and sport sheds usually need to be designed to cater for a large amount of small equipment. Soccer balls, tennis racquets, goal posts or desks and chairs, we can assist you in creating an internal fit out to best suit your needs. Our distributorship Fair Dinkum Sheds can assist us to provide customised buildings to suit every situation.
