Illawarra-based, National facilities management company CBC Facilities Maintenance has been awarded the contract for the provision of trade services, scheduled maintenance services and minor works for the Illawarra Credit Union’s head office and branches.

The Illawarra Credit Union offers its members a complete range of banking and insurance products for both business and personal requirements.

• Lifts
• Pest Control

• Waste Management

Commenting on CBC’s latest contract, Adam Greedy, CBC representative assigned to the contract, “it’s nice to add value to a fellow Illawarra based business. So much of our business is for large, national organisations, so it’s exciting for CBC to have a local win, especially with such an iconic local brand like the Illawarra Credit Union. They are part of the fabric down here in the Illawarra.”

Building on a partnership extending back more than a decade, CBC has recently been awarded the Grounds and Garden maintenance contract for IRT, one of Australia’s largest community-owned providers of independent living, aged care and home care.

Founded in 1969 with the mission to provide better options in housing and care for older people, IRT today provides aged care services through retirement villages, aged care facilities and in-home visits to more than 9100 people across NSW, the ACT and Qld.

This Grounds and Garden maintenance contract covers 30 IRT facilities throughout the Illawarra and Shoalhaven and will see CBC responsible for all aspects of the ongoing care and development of the properties’ gardens and outdoor areas.

CBC will manage all facets relating Grounds and Garden maintenance of the contract, planning, allocation of labour, sourcing equipment, tools, and supervision required to complete the services.

“There’s a certain sense of pride and responsibility for us when we undertake a contract such as this,” said Adam Greedy, CBC FM Manager.

“These are not just commercial properties, they are people’s homes and for many of the residents spending time in the gardens is an important part of their day-to-day life. So not only do we need to ensure that the facilities are maintained to the highest standards, but our highly trained staff are also conscious of the need to undertake their work with due respect to the residents.”

Amenity for the residents however is only one aspect of the important role that high-quality grounds maintenance plays for IRT facilities. Well-maintained grounds not only showcase IRT premises within their communities but also provide an inviting showcase for potential future residents and their families.
A stipulation of the contract was that all works must be “carried out in a professional manner to the satisfaction of the Contract Manager, and in compliance with legislative and relevant Australian Standards”

“Grounds maintenance has long been a core speciality of CBC Facilities Maintenance. We’ve built a depth of experience and professionalism amongst our staff through years of providing these services and we have the systems and processes in place to ensure all our work meets these highest of standards.” Adam Greedy.

“Our long-term partnership with IRT is a great example of where we have been able to successfully provide our expertise and quality service to an organisation with shared values and a commitment to quality outcomes for its stakeholders. CBC is proud to be part of that commitment.”

Following a successful tender submission, CBC Facilities Maintenance has been awarded the contract for Western Health’s “Essential Safety Measures – Fire Services” requirements.

Western Health (Victoria) manages three acute public hospitals: Footscray Hospital at Footscray; Sunshine Hospital at St Albans; and the Williamstown Hospital. It also operates the Sunbury Day Hospital, and a Transition Care Program at Hazeldean in Williamstown. A wide range of community-based services are also managed by Western Health, along with a large Drug and Alcohol Service.

In total CBC will be providing its fire maintenance expertise across 16 Western Health facilities.

“Government regulations require that fire equipment and systems are regularly tested, serviced and maintained to ensure they operate correctly in the event of a fire or related event,” said Scott Leys, CBC’s Fire Services Manager.

“Under this contract CBC will be scheduling and undertaking testing of all equipment and systems in accordance with Australian Standards, performing any required replacement or repairs and maintaining the required compliance records of all work performed.

“To ensure we meet all the contract and regulatory requirements our in-house expert fire maintenance technicians will utilise our custom developed Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to schedule and monitor all inspection, testing and maintenance activities, ad-hoc work order requests and importantly, the annual fire compliance test.”

Western Health facilities provide services to the western region of Melbourne which has a population of approximately 800,000 people and encompasses a catchment area of 1,569 square kilometres.

“Our ability to service such a large area with our own in-house staff was a fundamental part of our submission and ensures that we can guarantee the responsiveness and quality of the service provided to Western Health,” said Scott.

With population in the region expected to grow by a further 50% in coming years maintaining a robust health care capability will be a vital component of the region’s public infrastructure and CBC will be playing its part in ensuring the safety of patients and staff at these facilities.

Bob Simpson, brother of CBC’s Group Operations Manager, Josh Ryan, has finished an enormous 4,000km, 28 day, trans-continental ride from Perth, WA to the Southern Highlands in NSW, raising funds to help Police with PTSD through the Quest For Life Foundation.

The Quest for Life Foundation was established in 1989 by Petrea King. Up until 1995 the Foundation was based in Sydney where it hosted hundreds of support and meditation groups for people living with cancer, grief, AIDS, depression, anxiety and other traumas as well as teaching programs. In 1995, Petrea and the work of Quest for Life moved to Bundanoon in the beautiful Southern Highlands of NSW.

Bob’s long and arduous journey commenced on the 10th of September, with spirits high and full of determination, Bob has continued on, day in, day out, averaging over 140km per day, in varying weather conditions including mid-30 degree heat to heavy downpours of rain, averaging over 6 hours a day on the bike along barren roadways, through the various country towns of Western Australia, South Australia and New South Wales.

“Three cheers for Bobby” cried out as he crossed the rainbow streamers strewn across the finish line at the Bundanoon Quest for Life Foundation, in front of a gathered crowd of friends, family and supporters of Bob’s cause.

Bob’s efforts have garnered great support from fellow Police Officers and other members of the public, seeing the total donations raised to date just under $40,000.00.

Bob is a medically retired NSW Police Officer. From 1996 to 2014, he served the State with honour before falling victim to the horrors of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. His personal journey has been devastating to himself, his family and to so many other former and currently serving Police Officers.

Police encounter traumatic events on a daily basis. They experience trauma that regular citizens rarely encounter. It’s highly likely most people would know someone who is or was a police officer. Chances are, if they’ve been in the job for more than a few years, they’re already suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress.

PTSD is a debilitating injury that can manifest itself in so many ways. Generally, major anxiety, chronic hyper vigilance and depression are the most common manifestations – these are life changing.

CBC is proud to support such a worthy cause and has been behind Bob every step of the way – with CBC’s Projects Director, Richard Greedy, Group Facilities Manager Adam Bristow, Brother and Group Operations Manager Josh Ryan, Group WHSEQ Manager, Peter Calder, Contract Administrator, Jodie Murrell and Project Manager, Adam Greedy all riding in tow with Bob on the last day of his ride, helping to celebrate his well-deserved success at the finish line.
