DHL Head Office – Tullamarine, Victoria

DHL had been a Danihers client for eight years. Six years ago, the contract was up for renewal, but was awarded to another supplier.

Within 12 months, DHL re-engaged Danihers to rectify the problems experienced with the alternative supplier, and develop and implement a new structured cleaning maintenance program.

When DHL consolidated their distribution sites into a giant purpose-built facility at Melbourne Airport, Danihers recommended implementing its innovative new Day Green Clean to reduce energy use at night, enhance flexibility of cleaning service delivery and be able to action specific cleaning and maintenance activities in a timely manner.

Dianne Panella of DHL reports that they are delighted with the effectiveness and adaptability of the team, immediate response support when required and general service quality delivered by Danihers.

 

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart College – Bentleigh, Melbourne

Located in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart (OLSH) College is a catholic girls’ secondary school with a long and established heritage going back to 1938.

The college needed a partner with the unique ability to pull together a range of cleaning management, property maintenance, landscaping and security services to provide a comprehensive facility management solution at their site in Bentleigh.

Danihers joined the team at OLSH in 2008 and since then an on-site Facility Manager has worked closely with the management team at the college, meeting their needs on a daily basis and proactively providing expert advice.

In addition to providing cleaning services, staffing solutions and grounds maintenance, Danihers has completed a range of improvement projects over this time.

These include reconfiguring classrooms, adapting office space and the chapel for short term use, installing CCTV and water catchment systems, constructing an oval with shade facilities and repairing the heritage-listed fence.

According to Principal Anne O’Loughlin, OLSH has received a consistently high standard of support with property and maintenance requirements since entering into partnership with Danihers.

 

St Columbans Mission – Essendon, Victoria

St Columbans Mission is a beautiful heritage listed facility in Essendon, Victoria.

Three years ago the team at St Columbans came to Danihers when they required specialised tradespeople to restore and stabilise the 130-year-old mansion and fence.

Following prolonged drought in Victoria, the foundations for a large part of the mansion were moving and one of the corners was in danger of coming away from the building.

The experienced Danihers team was able to deal with the unique challenges inherent in repairing such an historic building and the structure was restabilised within a month.

Danihers continues to provide building maintenance services at St Columbans Mission, including external painting, general repairs, asbestos audits and special projects.

A grounds maintenance team is on hand to keep the building’s exterior in pristine condition with regular lawn mowing, garden edging, weeding and planting.
