Middy’s WA was successful winning the Rack supply for the $2 billion Fiona Stanley Hospital to Nilsens WA.
Tendering started in February 2011 and Ben Mok at Middy’s was awarded the job in October 2011. With a proven record for success demonstrated in past projects, Middy’s and Nilsens partnered with B&R Enclosures to supply the racks and equipment for the project.
The project demanded critical requirements that needed to be considered in the partnership. These included adhering to strict delivery schedules for supply but also maintaining open and consistent communication between all stakeholders in the project.
This was found to be a critical element for the successful partnership between Middy’s and B&R – ensuring that the best solutions could be supplied and that the right people were recruited to make that happen.
With tight schedules to meet, B&R worked closely with Middy’s and the customer to ensure deadlines were met. The project required delivery in stages throughout 2012 which B&R met each schedule (even storing racks when customer couldn’t take full delivery). Being a landmark project, it was critical for all deadlines to be met, which B&R were able to achieve with confidence.
