Knights Laundry relocation
Established in 1897, Knights Commercial Laundry was, in 2015, relocated to the other side of the city, to a larger premises, to accommodate the company’s continual growth. The new site was an existing industrial shed that was to be transformed into an industry leading, state of the art commercial laundry.
Chris Buckley Plumbing was contracted to install hydraulic services to the new premises as well as assisting with the decommissioning and disconnection of equipment at the current laundry site. It was a stipulation of the contract that the laundry must remain operational throughout the relocation process.
This was managed through a precise project schedule and some night works. Services installed at the new location included a new 100mm water connection, 100mm gas supply to the building and boiler, alterations to the existing fire hose reel and hydrant systems, cast in-situ grated pit system and trade waste drainage including lint traps, compressed air reticulation and connection of water, gas and compressed air to all of the laundry equipment.
