Multiplex Perth Takes Control with ASC’s M Class Dust Filters

Construction

Client Introduction

On the edge of the Perth CBD is the Elizabeth Quay. Multiplex is in the process of constructing the Chevron Tower, a 2.5-year project to build the 29-story building, which will house Chevron’s new Perth head office. Using 98% local contractors, the construction is well underway.

The Challenge

Multiplex was faced with the challenge of keeping the site as dust-free as possible due to the strict site rules and OHS requirements. Hence they needed to control the silica dust and prevent it from getting airborne. For that matter, they required the best and longest-lasting dust filters. As the construction process would last for over 2.5 years, they needed strong, reliable sweepers to handle the site. They wanted an easy-to-use sweeper as many different operators would be using them. All contractors on site, plumbing, electrical, office outfitters needed to purchase a sweeper to keep their sections clean.

The Solution

At the start of construction, ASC Area Manager Ross Sheehan met the Multiplex team and six of their major contractors to showcase the ASC Eureka sweepers. The three machines demonstrated included the Eureka MEP, the M1, and the M3. All machines performed extremely well in the cement dust and building debris.

The ASC M1 was considered the best choice as it had a mid-size debris hopper and large capacity cement dust filtration system. Also, its walk-behind feature made it more manoeuvrable than the larger ASC rider M3.

The Result

Multiplex placed an order for two ASC Eureka M1 walk-behind sweepers with upgraded M Class dust filters (M-class filter can filter to 99.98% and are covered in a polymer to repel water and oil).

Within a couple of months, all contractors had purchased the ASC Eureka M1 with upgraded filters, making eight ASC sweepers on their site.

ASC and the Eureka sweepers are proud as they help with protecting the workplace of the thousands of workers constructing the next landmark on the Perth skyline.
