Accuraco was engaged by the The  GPT Group to Project Manage the replacement of skylights and the re-painting of warehouses at Citiwest Industrial Estate located in Altona North, 15 km south-west of Melbourne’s CBD. The Estate comprises a wide range of mixed industrial and commercial assets, including six high clearance warehouse distribution centres.

It was determined that the warehouses needed an upgrade in lighting quality. The Client undertook a feasibility study and following this, resolved that all fiber glass skylights needed to be replaced with a laser light product (wonder glass). The product is UV resistant and has been scientifically engineered to magnify light.

Accuraco managed the tendering process in order to procure the best contractors and consultants. Following from this, Accuraco managed the two stage installation process.

The larger warehouses in the estate primarily used by logistics companies for their wholesale distribution. In order to satisfy leasing demands in a competitive market, it was determined by the client that these warehouses required a re-paint plus refurbishment. Accuraco was engaged to manage the project from tendering through to completion.

The painting required specialist care due to certain surfaces being severely corroded. In such areas, the surfaces were manually stripped clear of rust with wire brushes and a slow and methodical application of 2 pac epoxy paints was applied.

Stakeholder management was particularly important during this project as the warehouses were tenanted throughout the works and deliveries could not be interrupted.

Accuraco was pleased to be involved in this project. It was rewarding to build close relationships with both Dulux and Programmed to ensure a quality outcome and that warranties were maintained.
