The TACCA Plastic Factory is one of Australia’s largest privately owned plastics companies. TACCA supplies plastics containers and shells for many food products we all consume, including fruit and vegetable products as well as Arnott’s Tim Tams. The damage occurred when a hailstorm tore through Moorebank, the hail struck the solar panels on the factory, which resulted in fire. The complex comprised of 4 factories and offices in excess of 16,000m2 of roofing and purlins. There were a number of trades involved in the restoration of the factories, including solar panel contractors, plumbers, electricians, etc. Bay Building Services coordinated the implementation of staged work areas, as there was a great deal of equipment in the factories that needed protection. A great deal of work also took place outside of standard working hours. These shifts primarily took place late Friday evenings, through to early Saturday mornings. Bay Building Services contractors also worked over the Easter break to ensure works were completed as soon as possible.

Grafton, New South Wales was hit with an enormous hail storm, resulting in damaged roofing to the Grafton Regional Industrial Complex. The hail damage created a large impact on the industrial complex’s day to day operations. Bay Building Services were called in to coordinate a range of trades to ensure that the roof could be restored without affect to the tenants of the complex. The complex is home to thirty tenants, so works were implemented to ensure the tenants could continue their day to day functions and avoid any business insurance claims. This was also a hazardous project for the team as there was a great deal of asbestos throughout the complex. With such a dedicated team, the entire replacement of the roof (including asbestos removal and clean-up) was completed in a thee month window, with minimum disruption to the tenants and shop owners.
