University of the Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay

Foundation Building Multi Vehicle Car park
September – November 2019

When Hansen Yuncken needed car park safety barrier solutions installed quickly, safely and on time, they turned to Australia’s leading installer, Ontime Guardrail.

Working with Hansen Yuncken’s design and construct team, Ontime Guardrail were an integral partner in a $1.7million project to develop the University of the Sunshine Coast’s Foundation Building to form the beginnings of a new campus in the Moreton Bay region.

Ontime Guardrail were engaged to install RHINO-STOP® Guardrail Safety Barrier Type 6 throughout the project’s multi-storey car park.

RHINO-STOP® Guardrail Safety Barrier Type 6 is ideal for multi-storey car parks where available space for a barrier system is at a premium and where anti-climb requirements need to be met.

Safety First

Safety was always going to be the priority on this job. With the Foundation Building forming part of a broader precinct, multiple contractors needed to ensure work programs fit into the larger project development schedule.

The scale and multi-tier nature of the project added another dimension to the safety measures needed. With a significant risk of tools and guardrail components falling to the worksite below, Ontime Guardrail took the proactive approach and implemented our own exclusion zones, keeping all on-site workers in the vicinity safe.

Tight timeframes

Any delays to the programme could disrupt or delay the start of the 2020 school year, so extensions were simply not an option.

We were chosen because of our demonstrated experience to successfully deliver installations on time and on budget without compromising quality.

Our proven capabilities, willingness to work within the broader project milestones and commitment to safety were exactly what Hansen Yuncken and the University needed.

Our extensive experience with the RHINO-STOP® Guardrail Safety Barrier System meant we knew the intricacies of the product to meet the tight timeframe.

From the outset we were made very aware of the aggressive nature of the project needed to meet deadline. Working collaboratively was the only way this could be achieved. Commitment, clear communication and teamwork became the driving forces behind a successful project.

And we had the resources to build the team needed to meet the relatively small turnaround time for the size of the project.

Training

Limited installation timeframe meant stringent safety requirements inclusive of Silica Dust Awareness training. The Ontime Guardrail team underwent Silica Dust Awareness Training as well as all other site specific induction and safety training.
