Newington College is a multi-campus facility with an independent Uniting Church, single-sex and co-educational early learning, primary and secondary day and boarding school for boys. It is located in Stanmore, an inner-western suburb of Sydney.

The college had developed a lifelong relationship with ASC over the last 13 years as ASC had proved to be the best solution provider when it came to their outdoor cleaning equipment needs.

The Challenge

Newington College has many campuses with various roadways plenty of school grounds spreading across acres. The college resembles a modern university.

Their campuses include multiple carparks, playgrounds, synthetic grass areas, huge open paved, and bitumen areas.

The College looked around for the best solution to minimize their housekeeping staff as well as use their time efficiently. They found ASC to be the best.

The Solution

Newington invested in 2 ASC Dulevo 850 Diesel sweepers some 13 years ago. These machines have been running four or more hours per day for them. They start operating the machines at dawn and finish cleaning before 9 am.

They use the ASC Dulevo 850 around the bulk of the hardstand areas. Prior to the introduction of the ASC equipment, they used an arsenal of petrol blowers and manual sweeping. This method didn’t work for them as it merely blew the dust and debris from one part to another, making the work longer and never-ending.

Typical debris included leaves, grass cuttings, paper, plastic bottles, glass, dirt, and aggregate.

Over these years, Newington college also invested in an ASC M3 rider sweeper for the maintenance of their tennis courts. Moreover, they also have an ASC M1 walk-behind sweeper for maintaining areas that the big Dulevo 850 can’t reach.

Newington runs a five-star cleaning program, which is a standard achieved and maintained by only a few universities and colleges. It is an incredible feat, given that the college has a small maintenance crew.

With ASC’s help, they have invested in reliable sweeping machines that have an amazing lifespan of 10+ years and operate daily with minimal maintenance costs and few if any breakdowns.
