In what can only be described as a clear commitment to modular construction, Rendine Constructions have decided to go all in with their new factory and, clients have noticed.
Adjacent to their existing headquarters in Geelong, and utilising their modular construction division “Modularity by Rendine”, the factory was purpose built earlier this year to facilitate design, fabrication and fit-out of modular sections under one roof before they are delivered to the client’s site for installation and connection to services.
Under controlled conditions in their factory, they’re able to precisely control all elements of the production process that typically isn’t available with on-site conventional methods of construction.
Subscribing to the principles to Lean Manufacturing the Modularity system also fosters a culture in which wastage is reduced, environmental impact can be lessened, and efficiencies are continuously maximised through workflows such as just-in-time delivery of materials. “These significant benefits create cost savings that we are able to pass on to the client in the form of competitive pricing, but the greatest benefit of modular construction is speed”, said Craig Whitford General Manager of Modularity.
“From the first pen stroke in our design studio to handing over the keys, the Modularity system typically takes half the time of traditional construction methods. Crucially for many of our clients, there is significantly less disruption at the site during preparation and installation works.”
“We now have the ability to design, construct, deliver, install and hand over a project in a remarkably short timeframe. That makes modular construction a compelling proposition for schools, sporting clubs, government contracts or community housing projects.”
“With the new factory, we have invested in a quality-driven production line mentality that puts Rendine Constructions squarely at the forefront of the modular construction industry.
“When you take into account the speed of delivery, quality of workmanship and reduced disruption at the site, Modularity presents a pretty compelling case.”
“With all the skillsets of modular construction under the one roof at the one time, you can set an aligned goal. And that’s to build the best, most efficient modular building we can.
“The advantage of having a diversified team on site is we can have a go at anything. Electrical in there? No problem. Does it involve plumbing? Yeah, no worries. Engineering? No issue. You’ve got all the resources sitting there.
“We have all the tools in the toolbox to give the client the exact product to suit their needs, which is incredibly well-built buildings that reflect what they want to use them for. With this factory, that’s exactly what we build.”
