Functional Coating Solution for Airport Infrastructure

Melbourne Airport (Asia Pacific Airport Corporation – Melbourne [APAM]) commenced a beautification program of works to the existing Melbourne Airport Terminals 1, 2 and 3 in the middle of 2016. As part of the program existing concrete infrastructure, including building facades, pedestrian bridges, elevated roads, carpark ramps and overpasses required painting to strict specifications.

The APAM concrete infrastructure beautification program required conformance to a challenging timeframe and could not interrupt airport operations.

PrimoGuard decorative coatings were chosen over competitive systems, due to a number of considerations including; no disruption to airport operations, fast application time, application in low temperature environment, and surety of completion to timelines,and previous experience and with PrimoGuard on airport bridges and overpasses.

Nanokote was engaged to supply and install PrimoGuard coatings to approximately 30,000 square metres of infrastructure, being building facades, pedestrian bridges, elevated roads, carpark ramps and overpasses.

The PrimoGuard application program required assessment of the existing concrete infrastructure (some of which was up to 40 years old), development of a detailed works program, and selection of optimal application methodologies (brush, roll and spray) in order to satisfy the customers requirements.

By working flexible work hours, throughout days and nights, with multiple application crews deployed to separate work fronts in order to avoid disruption to passengers and airport operations, Nanokote was able to successfully complete the beautification coating program within eight weeks.

Nanokote was able to minimize impacts to passengers and airport operations because PrimoGuard there was no requirement for the applicators to return to the work area more than once, allowing:

  • Application work to be undertake quickly
  • Minimal application interruptions due to changes and adverse weather
  • No disruption to airport and passenger traffic
  • No disruption to passengers and pedestrians in peak periods
  • Standard access equipment to be employed
  • Flexibility of moving from one work areas to another to suit operational needs
  • Substitute PrimoGuard for other coating systems on metal substrates.
  • PrimoGuard offers the following advantages to the airport :
  • Surface water ingress into the concrete is prevented, due to the PrimoGuard coating properties.
  • Existing lighting outside the Terminal entries became more effective due to the reflectivity of the coating (possibility to reduce the electricity use)
  • Concrete surfaces became easier to clean(possibly to reduce labour time)
  • concrete protective coatings less susceptible to damage from high pressure cleaning, due to the extremely strong adhesion of PrimoGuard to the concrete.

Nanokote has been working with government authorities and private asset owners, along with specifiers around the world for more than eight years as need for next generation functional coatings materials has expanded. Best practices to achieve cost efficient design, enhanced service life, reduced maintenance costs have continued to be focal points for major infrastructure asset owners.

PrimoGuard is a single coat system for anticarbonation and anti-corrosion requiring no priming that allows a single coat to be directly applied to dry or damp concrete.

This replaces typical competitor coating systems requiring three-coats: primer and two separate coats of acrylic applied 24 hours apart.

Single coat application offers for major savings when carrying out works on infrastructure where 24 hour operations exist and no disruption to operations and passengers are required.

How Houses Were Cooled Before Air Conditioning

The need to find a method for cooling a house in a hot climate is nothing new. With the use of systems for heating and cooling, Melbourne residents have demonstrated their willingness to look for effective solutions. Throughout history, there has been a range of methods and approaches for keeping cool.

How older civilisations kept cool

The ancient Egyptians hung dampened reeds over their windows and they also placed pots filled with water in their passageways. The ancient Romans used internal courtyards, sometimes with gardens and pools of water, to promote a flow of cooling air through their buildings.

In the Middle East, wind catchers were a common architectural technique that would improve airflow through buildings and help keep them cool. Sometimes these were used in conjunction with water pools, where the air would flow through the wind catcher down over the water where it would cool, before flowing through the rest of the property.

Mud bricks were a commonly used material for building houses and these act as a very effective insulator. They were often made with straw to help keep the integrity of the brick and to improve their resistance to weather. This ensured also that they were very good at keeping the heat out. In recognition of this, mud bricks are used quite regularly now in designs that are utilising passive specialised heating and cooling techniques.

In Malta, they recognised that by building their houses with very thick walls and small windows they were able to reduce the amount of heat that came into the property during the hot day. In Greece, they painted their properties white to reflect a lot of the heat that came from the sun. In Spain, fountains and pools as well as deep set windows helped to reduce the impact of the summer sun.

Modern cooling solutions in Melbourne

For specialised heating and cooling, Melbourne has always been looking for the best solutions. To deal with the hot summer sun we experience, there were some design innovations such as large sleeping porches and wide overhanging roofs that protected the windows from the sun. In addition, the windows were often made small to reduce the amount of heat that would be able to flow into the living environment. The large overhanging roof on the verandah provided protection from the sun, but also made it possible to keep doors and windows open even when it was raining.

For houses in Australia that had external verandah space, there was the development of the sleep out. Many houses in summer would tend to retain heat inside, particularly on nights when there was little air flow so that it would be cooler outside of the building. The idea behind this was to create a space on the verandah where people were able to sleep in the cooler night air while still having the protection of the roof. It was often surrounded by flyscreen mesh walls to keep insects away or was semi-enclosed with thin walls and windows to provide greater privacy. It was possible to hang hammocks or to have sleeping beds in the space.

One of the largest access points to a house were the doors. In Australia, there are many flyscreen doors that have been developed so that it is possible to leave doors open and at the same time preventing the entry of flying insects, particularly flies. Some of these had spring mechanisms attached to make them self-closing. Some of them had special metal frames built in to make them security doors as well. In other places, they used long strings of beads or long strips of coloured materials that would hang down from the top of the doorway. This allowed easy access and the flow of air while still preventing the entry of flies without the need for an opening and closing screen door.

The development of secure windows that could be opened as well as be fitted with a flyscreen ensured that it was possible to have windows open during the evening and the night when air temperatures had dropped. By having them open on different sides of the property, it was possible to have a cooling flow of air through the house.

Block-out curtains

Inside the house, people would use block-out curtains on the windows. This would prevent the heat from being able to flow into the living environments during the day. These curtains could then be drawn in the evening and the windows opened to allow the cooler air to flow through.

High ceilings

It was identified that hot air rises, so to help reduce the heat levels in living areas the ceilings were made higher in some houses. This is quite effective in allowing the cooler air to flow through the lower parts of these rooms.

Balconies

With the development of apartment blocks in the city, these were sometimes provided with balconies that could offer some protection for the living areas from the sun. In addition, some buildings took advantage of external blinds or awnings over windows that were able to reduce the impact of the sun.

Ancient cooling techniques are still being used

Some modern buildings are now being designed to take advantage of the cooling techniques from ancient architecture.

In Rajasthan, a modern architecture company developed a property with traditional exterior styling that provides valuable cooling protection for the building, open courtyards within the building to promote airflow, and a large pool of water on the lowest level that helps to cool the air through evaporation while providing a decorative element. It includes a double skin for exterior walls based on a traditional building method that provides a buffer from the heat. The use of these techniques substantially reduces the need for the use of modern air conditioning systems.

In Dubai, an engineer has taken the traditional wind tower design and is combining it with modern refrigerant technology to create a zero-energy cooling system.

Australian architects have been using passive cooling elements in designs for many years, particularly in the northern parts of our country. In Melbourne, there has been a recognition of the benefits of doing this to reduce the need for the use of cooling systems and minimise the costs of keeping a house cool in summer.

Evaporative Cooling Services: This is What You Need to Know

If you’re searching for a method of cooling your home that is well- matched to the dry Melbourne climate, consider evaporative cooling. This type of air conditioning will work in homes and residential buildings – all you need to do is ensure you can open a window or door to provide necessary circulation.

evaporative cooling repairs melbourne

How an Evaporative Cooling Service Works

Evaporative cooling uses pads soaked in water to cool your home. Hot air from the outside of your property is pumped across the pads, causing the water to evaporate and the heat from the air to be absorbed.

With evaporative cooling, the pads work as a filtration system. The entire process cools the hot air which in turn, creates an air conditioned effect. A fan is used to push the now cold air through a ducting system to move it to other areas of your property.

The Importance of Leaving Open a Window or Door

Because the cool air does not recirculate through the home as it does in other types of air conditioning systems, it is necessary to leave a window or door open. This provides proper ventilation and keeps the air circulating across the cooling pads.

Why Choose Evaporative Cooling?

When you use an evaporative cooling repairs Melbourne, you receive a constant flow of 100% cool, fresh air through your home or business. This is ideal for locations across the Melbourne region, and anywhere else that experiences long, hot summers.

An evaporative cooling service is also rather economical to run, especially when compared to the costs of operating other types of air conditioners. In fact, installing an evaporative cooling system can cut your cooling costs in half. If you’re looking for a way to save money while enjoying fresh, cool air in summer, this may be the option you need.

Evaporative cooling is also an environmentally friendly method of cooling your home or business, and requires much less electricity to run.

Installing an Evaporative Cooling Service Also Provides Great Health Benefits

There is plenty of important health benefits associated with using an evaporative cooling repairs Melbourne service. Those who suffer from allergies and respiratory difficulties will benefit greatly because this method humidifies the air and so does not dry out skin, sinuses or eyes.

The filtration system activated by the pads will also eradicate germs by removing them from the cool air, ensuring what you breathe is pure. This constant flow of fresh air will create a healthy, pleasant environment that will promote overall good health even for those who aren’t experiencing respiratory issues.

Evaporative Cooling Compared to Other System Types

Evaporative cooling provides distinct benefits over other types of cooling systems. It is simple to use and maintain, requiring less maintenance than other systems. As the unit adds humidity to the air, the continuous circulation creates a breeze that feels cool on the skin.

Evaporative cooling systems are very energy efficient. This means you will spend less on your monthly bill while conserving energy all-around.

When you choose an evaporative cooling repairs Melbourne, you will also have the choice of installing a window unit or portable system. A window unit will require simple maintenance measures to be carried out in the spring and autumn to prepare it for use during the summer and for storage in winter. If you’re using a portable unit, you’ll need to clean the filters and water curtains every few weeks, and remember to drain the unit at the end of summer.

fresh seafood melbourne

Fresh See Food in Melbourne

In today’s world market, fresh fish is available in almost any city, town or village. Modern handling and storage techniques have made it possible to pack and transport fish over extremely long distances leading to a rising increase of fresh fish suppliers. This enables people living in land-locked areas to enjoy fresh seafood Melbourne with nearly the same regularity as people who live close to the ocean or other bodies of water. Unfortunately, people who are new to purchasing fresh fish may lack the knowledge necessary to identify good seafood. Here are some simple steps to help anyone make a good seafood purchase.

A fresh seafood melbourne looks good, with shiny, slippery that hold together closely. A fish that is not fresh appears flaccid; its scales are less shiny and are sometimes dry and loose.

fresh seafood melbourne

fresh seafood melbourne

The eyes of a fresh fish are clear, shiny and bulging, while an older fish has eyes that are whitish/opaque and not so clear, because the membranes have lost moisture. Deep-sea fish can have bloodshot eyes because of the change in pressure when the fish is brought up rapidly to the boat. In this case the ‘clear eye’ assessment is not valid; it is best to judge a red-eyed fish by its firmness.

The body and flesh of a fresh seafood melbourne are very firm and the fibres hold in all the goodness and moisture. The body fibres of a not-so-fresh fish, or one that has been thawed, have begun to soften and release precious juices.

A fresh fish has pink or deep red gills, but the gills of an older fish are brownish in colour.

The smell of a salt-water fish reminds you of the sea, while a freshwater fish has a river smell reminiscent of freshly cut grass. A fish that is ‘off” always smells unpleasant.

Some fish have heavier bones than others, so keep this in mind when buying whole fish from a fresh fish supplier. For example, a 300 g flounder, which is a heavy-boned fish, will provide less flesh than a trout of the same weight, whose bones are lighter. The general rule is that flat fish have less flesh than round fish of the same weight, because the bones of flat fish are heavier.

In principle, the more delicate the fish, the more expensive it is. We at Renung Seafood are proud of being one of the top fresh seafood melbourne and worldwide. Contact us now to get the best deals and the freshest fishes.

onsite caravans for sale

Starter Kit for Onsite Caravans for Sale

There are many Onsite Caravans for Sale all across Australian Caravan Parks. You may have been on a Caravan Park holiday recently and wondered what these permanent Caravans were all about. You may think that people live in these as permanent residents. This is possible but majority of the permanent Onsite Caravans in Australia are for holidays.

Caravan Parks have nightly rates for guests to bring in their Caravans, however many Caravan Parks also give the opportunity to people to leave their Caravans in the park permanently. Instead of a nightly fee the Caravan owner will pay a quarterly site fee. This saves the hassle of bringing the Caravan into the park each time they go on holidays. In a way it means that your Caravan is now a small affordable holiday home. There are many Onsite Caravans for Sale in many parks, but before you take the big step in making the purchase there are a few aspects that you should consider first.

Distance from home

The important aspect about Onsite Caravans is that you need to pay quarterly fees and if the Onsite Caravan is not being utilised as much as possible the quarterly fees will be a burden. Make sure you look at Onsite Caravans for Sale that are within a 1.5 – 2 hour distance from your home. If its any longer than this you may be reluctant to make the trip as often as you hope for. Popular Onsite Caravans for sale in NSW are on the Central Coast 2 hours north of Sydney and the South Coast 2 hours South of Sydney. Popular Onsite Caravans for sale in Victoria are near Phillip Island, Rosebud, Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove. For Queensland, Onsite Caravans for Sale on the Sunshine Coast are the most popular, just a couple hours’ drive from Brisbane.

Considering the Park

You may have found a few Onsite Caravans for Sale that you would consider purchasing, but its very important to consider the park the van is located in as well. Make sure that you stay a night in the park to get a feel for the atmosphere. Do you have small children and are there other families with kids nearby? Are there rowdy residents that may disturb you late at night? Are the facilities appealing to what your family needs? If you have children it may be important to have a lot of water activities such as pool and nearby beach. When looking at Onsite Caravans for Sale that need renovations and some touches up, speak to the park management and see if they have any guidelines on what work can be done on an Onsite Caravan. They may have restriction on what can and cannot be done. Always best to info them of what your plans are and allow them to give their feedback.

Site Fees

Many people see the price tag for Onsite Caravans and they think that is everything that needs to be considered. The really important thing to consider is the ongoing costs. While the Onsite Caravan price may be $10,000 – $50,000 to purchase, you do not own the land so you will need to pay quarterly site rental to the park management and this can be $3000 – $6000 per year. This over a 10 year period is $30,000 – $60,000. This is the biggest expensive. Onsite Caravans for Sale in NSW tend to have higher site fees than Onsite Caravans for Sale in Victoria. Onsite Caravans for Sale on Sunshine Coast is the most affordable.

Usage

When considering Onsite Caravans for Sale keep also in mind that the park may have restriction on the number of days you can use the van. Due to legislation on holiday vans many can only allow their Onsite Caravan Owners use the van for 180 days of the year. While this seems restrictive its not so bad. From 180 days, you can go for weekends away nearly every 3 weeks and have a couple of longer holidays in there as well. The biggest bonus when you own your own Onsite Caravan is that you can use it in the busy holiday seasons of the year, school holidays and Christmas holidays. Saving on peak season nightly rates and availability issues. Good luck in your search!

Julian Rembrandt has spent the last 10 years in the hotel industry across Australia and Asia. Permanent Onsite Caravans have been around for many decades but the knowledge about how to make the right purchase decision has been limited. Julian helps to educate people on the best ways to go about owning an Onsite Caravan. Julian Rembrandt owns and operates Holidaylife.com.au, a listing site for Onsite Caravans for Sale.

marketing for fitness businesses

HOW TO CREATE A SUCCESSFUL & SCALABLE FITNESS BUSINESS

I’m just going to put this out here: it is downright difficult to compete in the fitness industry these days, let alone set yourself up for long-term financial success. I read a statistic recently that indicated there were nearly 37,000 health clubs/fitness centers in the United States alone. So, how in the world are you going to make sure that what you offer not only brings in enough clients to keep your head above water, but also generates enough revenue that you can rest assured that the lights will come on for another day and you may even be able to take that vacation you’ve been dreaming about for years?

Here are 5 Go-To Methods I recommend to all of my consulting clients to ensure their gym is around longer than it took to build it out:

  1. Adjust your business model to include layers of memberships. There are many gyms out there that exist solely in one niche – one price point, one type of membership. In this current climate, that’s not going to keep you competitive. If you introduce multiple price points, you can cast a wider net to attract more potential clients in different demographic segments.

Start with your basic membership – the lowest price point – these are the people who just want to come in, do their own thing and leave. They will not require too much of your time which is good, because they’re not paying for it. Level that up to your next price point and introduce large group/team training ie: boot camps, yoga, spin – any type of class where you can have one instructor who is giving specific exercises, but in a larger group setting. It’s a little more structured, but still not too much personal attention. Your next level should be a couple of sessions of small group training per week where you cap your group to 4-6 people and each individual gets more attention. That can be bumped up again to include unlimited small group training sessions for a higher price tag. Round out your price list with private one-on-one training for those clients who want a completely individualized program and a lot of attention.  Each level will appeal to a different type of client and require a specific level of interaction in direct relation to the price tag.

marketing for fitness businesses

  1. You MUST have multiple profit centers – ideally 6-8 sources. This is where many gyms set themselves up for failure. What do I mean by this? Diversify your offerings! Just like with stocks, you do not ever want to put all of your eggs in one basket. What if that basket breaks? Your completely out of luck. Don’t tie all of your potential into one profit center. Explore alternate product offerings such as supplements, sports performance, nutrition, heart rate monitors, specialty programs, saunas, massage/FST, workshops, clinics, seminars…the list is only limited by your own creativity. Whatever you do will not only open up another revenue stream, but will also increase your overall visibility and perceived value in the community, in turn leading to additional potential clients.
  2. If you don’t currently offer Small Group Training (SGT), get that set up immediately. Over the past ten years, private training clients have become fewer and further between. At the same time, the interest in small group training (4-6 clients) has grown exponentially. While my gym tends to attract more private training clients than many across the nation due to its location, I still wanted to figure out how to take advantage of the SGT trend and make it just as lucrative for my gym and it worked out perfectly. Now, they are not only tied to the trainers, the program and the gym itself; they are now tied with the other members in the group. It creates more of a bond.

Let’s use my own numbers at Pulse Fitness for reference. My trainer was already going to set aside an hour of his time for Private Training Client A for $80.  For that same hour of his time, we decided to replace out the single session PT client with a SGT session. I lowered the individual cost of each client to $45 per client and raised the number of clients to 4 in same time slot. I am now bringing in $180 for the same hour with the same coach which is more than 2.5 times the total I collected for the single private training client during the same amount of time. Why wouldn’t you do this?! Not to mention that most of our PT clients only purchase a handful of sessions and then move on. Our SGT clients tend to sign monthly contracts that earn this same hourly rate month after month. Don’t miss out on that piece of the financial pie. 

  1. Do not pay your trainers per head, per session or a percentage. Pay your trainers a flat rate for their time; not for what they’re doing. This does several things for you. First of all, it keeps your employee costs predictable every month. Gym Owners are, as a whole, pretty bad with money. As soon as it comes in, we spend it. This way, there are no surprises when it comes to payroll and you know exactly how much is left over to cover any unexpected expenses. Secondly, it doesn’t matter if your trainer has one client or 30, your costs do not change. You can keep your coaches on a set schedule that is hourly so that no matter what they do, they make the same amount. This puts you in charge of your own gym, your own payroll, your trainers and your own money – not the other way around.
  2. Stop selling sessions! If there is only one thing that you take away from this blog, remember this: stop selling sessions and start selling results. Everyone is different and it takes a different amount of time to reach their goals. There is no way to say that someone can reach their goal in 5 sessions, 10 sessions, or more, especially since these session packages don’t usually expire. One client may come in 5 x week and spend the entire 10-session package by week two; another may come in twice one week and you won’t see their smiling face again for a month! Hence any results they may have expected or you may have promised are impossible to predict.

Additionally, most trainers are not very good sales people as they intrinsically want to help people and feel “bad” asking for money from the same clients time and again. Remove that obstacle and sell people into monthly memberships with x sessions per month instead of x sessions total. Sell them into the long-term results they will get from continuing with a program – lose body fat, increase self-confidence, feel great about themselves, or accomplish the impossible. This way, you’re only selling a client once and you will have recurring monthly EFTs.

Creating a successful and scalable marketing for fitness businesses is not an easy feat, but if investigate the opportunities I have outlined in this blog, you will be ahead of most of your competitors. Get started today!
