Lend Lease contacted Access Constructions and discussions commenced immediately to start the planning and design of a new manufacturing facility for Taurean Doors, a roller shutter door manufacturer part of the Fletcher Building Group. Their previous facility was being out grown and there was a green field opportunity at the existing Stramit Manufacturing Facility in Knoxfield that Access Constructions constructed back in 2008. The green light to proceed was granted by Lend Lease in May, town planning submitted, detailed drawing got underway, and construction commenced in June of that year.
Tight timeframes and Taurean Doors need to vacate their previous building, Access Constructions completed the manufacturing facility & external hardstands in December and the offices were completed by February. The short time frame and the build being within a working facility with Stramit’s daily truck movements added to complexity to the project and highlights the achievement of this build.
The building consisted of roller shutter door access to ether side of the building, detailed construction of pits and services for their machinery throughout the manufacturing facility. We also installed the necessary structural rails for overhead cranes as this formed a vital component for streamlining Taurean Doors manufacturing process.
The project was successfully managed by Statewide Project Management Pty ltd.
