In December we held our annual Christmas Party at the Richmond Club Hotel to celebrate the fantastic year we have had at Reliable Plumbing Services. The celebration is a highlight on our calendar each year, with our staff and their families joining us for a night of entertainment and socialising.
The Christmas Party provided the perfect opportunity to celebrate the past year’s accomplishments together. It was a big year with so many achievements to reflect upon including securing the La Trobe Plumbing Contract, Deakin University’s Scheduled Maintenance Contract, an excess of 320 hours of professional development training for all staff, as well as our office relocation due to our expanding team. Chris Malcolmson, our Director, has stated:
“2019 has been our biggest year yet and it wouldn’t be possible without the remarkable team of hard-working and talented people that we have here at Reliable. Every one of our staff have contributed to not only the success of our business, but our clients’ businesses also. The Christmas Party was the perfect celebration of our dedicated team and our success in 2019.”
Our team of plumbing experts were busy completing the annual scheduled clean out and maintenance works of the neutralising pits throughout the university. These pits are a vital part of ensuring environmental protection and neutralise laboratory tradewaste before it can enter the sewer.
These works are completed at the end of each year when the site is less populated, which allows our oversized trucks to enter the site with minimal disruption to staff and students.
We had also arranged main stormwater drain inspections, maintenance and cleanouts on the main roads surrounding the campus to ensure all debris and any obstructions were removed to minimise the risk of blockages in heavy downpour and to ensure this debris doesn’t cause contamination in our waterways.
Over the holiday period our team organised the removal of the existing Boiler and Calorifier at Queens College and replaced it with a new Rheem TankPak Water Heating Plant.
This involved beginning to end works, including initial research on the building’s current hot water usage to ensure sufficient hot water was supplied, based off day to day activities, time of day usage and student volume, through to the testing and commissioning of the new installation.
The college wanted to depend on a reliable supply of hot water for day-to-day operations, and ensure they were keeping in line with energy efficiency targets.
