Ezi-roll Doors Australia was commissioned to manufacture, supply, and install a total of 380 motorised steel shutters for a $150 million, custom designed, 71,000m2 freight sorting facility and corporate headquarters at Tullamarine Airport. This was a high profile project completed in 2016 and has had considerable media attention, as well as scrutiny from local government and WorkSafe Victoria.
Ezi-roll met not only the scope, but the day to day scheduling requirements needed on a site of this size, and its customers’ requirements. Ezi-roll was one of many trades involved and needed to be able to work around the principle schedule and the constant changes that would occur on a day to day basis. It was challenging for Ezi-roll production to meet delivery dates, and for the Melbourne team to adapt to the site’s constantly changing schedule.
Ezi-roll Project Manager Tony Bloxsom said, “Among the challenges we faced was meeting airflow percentage requirements for the site. This was done using our 3mm multi hole perforated door slat while maintaining functionality.” Ezi-roll was to demonstrate its ability to deliver the project on time and meet the required scope.
“Several of the dock doors on site needed dock leveller integration. This is where the shutter will not operate unless the dock leveller is in its desired position. This was achieved using the Grifco motor coupled with its expansion board, which was wired up and connected by our electrician,” Bloxsom continued.
