In mid-2015, EMRACK COMMERCIAL was awarded the entire FF&E contract on $47 million Victoria University Student Accommodation project by ADCO Constructions, one of Australia’s leading construction companies.
The awarded works included the manufacture and supply of all joinery and furniture throughout the entire 12 storey complex. The architect’s specification, delivered by Nettleton Tribe, outlined a range of different kitchen configurations, wardrobes, bedding, seating, desks, loose furniture, shelving, blinds and all other loose-fit FF&E requirements.
The Victoria University project was the first time ADCO had engaged the services of a dedicated ‘China Direct’ supplier on such a large scale. The Australian office team of EMRACK COMMERCIAL worked closely with ADCO’s project team – and the facility’s operator, Unilodge, throughout the process to ensure the smoothest possible delivery and installation.
Over 50 40ft’ containers were delivered to EMRACK COMMERCIAL’s dedicated Melbourne warehousing and dispatch facility. From this point, the local EMRACK COMMERCIAL Project Team worked with ADCO and the installation crews to manage all placement and portage within the building.
Careful planning and scheduling was critical throughout the manufacturing and project delivery phases – with all items being packed in individual export cartons and labelled according to room number and associated tracking detail.
All of the EMRACK COMMERCIAL office staff had input on this project with Senior Engineer Huafeng Li driving the product element, QA and compliance locally.
“With a large team of QA and production control teams, the job of actually manufacturing the products is quite simple. Myself and the technical team spend most of our time and resources working with the client and production managers to ensure correct specification, and the most efficient staging, delivery and process management. We are very proud of our work with ADCO and Victoria University”, states Huafeng Li.
