We have purchased premises at 22 Bormar Drive, Pakenham, Victoria.  This new location will become our head office and plant depot.  Although we are functional in our new premises, we will remain available (by appointment only) at U1/241 Blackburn Rd, Mt Waverley, Victoria until mid-January 2020 by which time we will have fully relocated to Pakenham.

Our website is also being upgraded.

 

The atmosphere at head office was busting with enthusiasm and excitement.  We were preparing to deliver construction for a prospective project; and we needed to hire around 100 workers within 3-4 weeks.

We take people and safety seriously and our recruitment process reflects this.  Our priority is to deliver a safe job so it goes without saying that it's very important for us to find individuals that fit our company culture.  We look for people with the right attitude, behaviour and communication skills.  Experience is not always the only factor to consider.

A safer working culture is achieved when employees with the right character and behaviours are engaged; and that starts at the recruitment stage.

Tunnelling Solutions has recently purchased an Akkerman 240A Guided Boring Machine for the installation of large diameter Canopy Tubes for the Norwest Pedestrian Tunnel.   They have also purchased an Electric Butor Tunnel Excavator from Metalliance in France. 

This type of equipment requires extensive training for safe and efficient operation and will also reduce any learning curve on the project.
