Appointed by the City of Sydney Council, Cockram Constructions undertook the construction management of the Alexandra Canal Works Depot in the community subdivision at 67A Bourke Road, Alexandria. The purpose of the depot is to provide waste, maintenance and construction services for the southern city area. The building is 5 green star-rated and uses sustainability initiatives. These include natural ventilation and lighting, roof water collection and re-use, solar power, energy and water efficient equipment and locally produced products where possible.
Austral Monsoon were engaged by Cockram Constructions to supply and install 14 off Steel Roller Shutters of Various Sizes, 11 off 9m wide Counterbalanced Bifold Doors and 1 off Aluminium Countertop Grill. In order to maintain the 5 green star-rating, the glass panels in the Counterbalanced Bifold Doors were selected specifically for the thermal properties.
The Alexandra Canal Project showcases Austral Monsoons diverse product portfolio and ability to provide customers with a “one stop shop” by combining products that would need to be provided by separate contractors otherwise. To further emphasis this, Austral Monsson Building Products were also engaged to provide louvre systems for this project making this a significant project for the AM Group.
