From residential gardens through to commercial carparks – SRS is covering it all this month.

Team work makes the dream work is what we say around here, and it is critical that we do to ensure our success. On multiple accounts our fabrication and rigging departments have had to work alongside each other to ensure a successful end product.

An example of this team work is currently being displayed on the downtown carpark project. SRS has over 370 panels needing to be fabricated, after the frames have been fabricated our rigging department must fill the panels with our tensile mesh netting.

You can imagine a job this big requires a lot of management, co-ordination and teamwork. The team work starts in the office where we create a spreadsheet calculating each panel individually and list it into a format for our fabrication department to be able to create the panels to their individual measurements. Our fabrications department needs to co-ordinate between manufacturing, subcontractors, rigging department and the installation dates. Once the frames have been fabricated and galvanized our rigging department start lashing the tensile mesh to the internal structure of the frames. We are deep into the project now with the completion date been late June. There is going to be a huge push from our team, but we can confidently say we have the right guys for the job.

While our workers on the factory floor have been working hard, there’s a lot going on and our operations and fabrications manager have jumped on the tools to lend a helping hand.

Our operations manager completed a vertical growing wire installation for a residential home in Coatsville yesterday. For a minimal look lag swagers were used at the top of the planter and installed directly into the timber pergola. At the lower end a fork and balustrade eye were tapped into the coreten steel planters. This eliminated the use of bulky turn buckles to obtain the minimalistic look.
