Yennora Factory Fire

On Monday 27th of July a fire broke out in the John Cootes warehouse adjacent to the Austral Monsoon manufacturing plant located in the western Sydney suburb of Yennora.

Emergency services were on the scene promptly and fought for hours to control the fire. Once under control, fire crews continued to work through the night to ensure that there were no new flareups that could threaten the surrounding buildings.

Austral Monsoon would like to thank NSW Fire and Rescue for their efforts in responding to this emergency, which resulted in the fire being largely contained.

The emergency service vehicles attending to the scene were fitted exclusively with Monsoon N35 and 2EB roller shutters.

The AM Group is the largest manufacturer of shutters for fire and emergency services vehicles worldwide.

QUT Creative Industries Precinct Kelvin Grove

Group company Mirage Doors has been successful in securing a subcontract from John Holland for three roller shutters and twelve counterweight doors on the QUT Creative Industries Redevelopment at Kelvin Grove on Brisbane’s inner northside. QUT is a major university in Brisbane, and this latest work involves refurbishment of a heritage building as well as a new 5 storey performing arts building. The glazed counterweight doors will be installed in the heritage building, and the metal clad counterweight doors will be part of the new construction.

Many of the John Holland site personnel were known to Mirage from our work in 2011 – 2014 at Enoggera Army Barracks, where over 300 roller shutters were installed in this period. Mirage Qld has strong positive working relationships with the vast majority of the Tier 1 builders in Qld and is well regarded for offering professional advice and project management on a vast array of building situations.

Sunshine Coast University Hospital

Group company Mirage Doors has just completed Stage 1 of the Sunshine Coast University Hospital (S.C.U.H.) at Birtinya. This hospital is the first brand new hospital on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast in over 30 years. Mirage’s relationship with Lend Lease has been successful and prominent for many years, and the successful installation of approx. 220 roller shutters on the Gold Coast University Hospital project in 2013 / 2014 was a strong precursor in securing this latest contract.

Mirage is currently in negotiations with Lend Lease on Stage 2 of the S.C.U.H. project, and are hopeful of a successful outcome by the end of July.
