Ausco Modular exceeds customer’s high expectations.

The Port of Melbourne Corporation is the strategic manager for the Port of Melbourne, and is the largest container and general cargo port in the nation.

Port of Melbourne Corporation contracted Ausco Modular to provide a temporary office for their staff, while their shipping management centre (the large tower pictured overleaf) was renovated.

The customer required a commercial building that was aesthetically pleasing and represented the corporate values of the Port of Melbourne Corporation. Of utmost importance, however, was a comfortable and quality internal space to accommodate staff working in the office, which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Ultimately, Ausco Modular’s ability to defy stereotypes by quickly providing a solution that featured high quality internal finishes and an attractive exterior set them apart from competitors.

Externally, the building featured coloured mesa cladding, which was continued to the ground in place of timber plinths, creating a more streamlined appearance.

The infrastructure surrounding the building, such as ramp hand rails, were painted to compliment the colours used in the building.

Internally, the building features a kitchen area and large work spaces, as well as a range of custom made desks, made to the client’s highly specific requirements.

The project end result was stylish and comfortable, and exceeded the clients expectations of what could be achieved with a modular building.

Port of Melbourne Corporation commended Ausco Modular for the flexibility of the product offering, the professionalism and quality of all staff involved in the project and the high standard of the completed work.

The client was particularly pleased with Ausco Modular’s ability to manage the entire process - from building permits, to manufacture, to installation of the building and installation of additional infrastructure.

The project highlights Ausco Modular’s ability to meet customers’ requirements through flexibility and by leveraging a national set of capabilities to achieve specialty requests.
