The opening of Perth’s newest shopping destination, the Direct Factory Outlet (DFO) located in Redcliffe, brought an unrivaled outlet shopping experience to Western Australia. The DFO hosts more than 100 specialty stores with its standards to be in line with Vicinity Centre’s other DFOs located along the east coast of Australia.
Access Rentals was a major supplier of equipment on the construction of Perth’s Direct Factory Outlet, being a leader in the Australian access equipment rental industry. DFO was built by Georgiou and was the company’s first project within the retail sector. Located in the Perth Airport precinct, the 24,000 square metre space features many Australian and International brands, casual dining, a children’s playground and parking for more than 1,500 cars.
The large construction project valued at $69m was completed on time and on budget within the scheduled 15 month period, with construction beginning in July 2017. The DFO had 600 workers at peak time during fit out and has since create over 100 jobs since opening its doors to the public in September 2018.
Access Rentals was a major supplier of EWPs including scissor lifts, boom lifts and material handlers on the project, supplying the majority of the trades such as electrical contractors, steel erection, ceiling and wall construction and fitout. Access Rentals’ fleet of high quality access equipment features the latest safety standards and technology from market leading brands for total reliability and workplace efficiency, to safely complete projects to deadlines.
The Genie GS 1932 electric scissor lift was the preferred type of EWP equipment hired on the project, because of its compact size and working height. It was perfect for the operator to access tight areas, it also has a massive extendable platform with excellent turning circle, making it the perfect machine for contractors to use. Forklifts and telehandlers were also used to move huge pallets of wall sheeting externally to where they had to be positioned on site.
Access Rentals was very proud to partner and support the builder and sub contractors on this project. “This was one of those projects that had a very strict deadline on opening, the feedback from our customers on the delivery, safety and all round support has been fantastic and this is what sets us apart from other Hire Companies, as our experience and technical expertise allows us to excel in this type of environment” said Will Reilly, General Manager of Access Rentals.
