Royal Wolf partners with Channel 9’s The Block
Royal Wolf, Australasia’s largest supplier of new, refurbished and modified shipping containers, is excited to announce it has partnered with The Block for a third consecutive season.
As the 16th season of Australia’s favourite home renovation show hits our screens, Royal Wolf is proud to showcase its innovative products on The Block site in Brighton, 12 kilometres south-east of Melbourne’s CBD.
“We’re thrilled to partner again with The Block . It’s a privilege to work with such a hardworking team and provide tailored solutions that make a real difference to their site,” says Royal Wolf’s Chief Executive Officer, Neil Littlewood.
For the first time in The Block history, the decision was made to build the contestant and trades amenities site as a vertical configuration. “This season, the constraints of the size of our site, coupled with the amount of space we needed for our staff, builders and tool storage, led us to partner with Royal Wolf to build a two-level stack,” says The Block ’s Co-founder and Executive Producer, Julian Cress.
“We’ve never done that before, and it made a huge difference. It was incredible to be able to centralise all those important facilities in one area, without taking up too much room on the site. It gave us a massive advantage, and helped us get the project done on time and on budget.” Royal Wolf designed, built and installed The Stack, a two-storey customised
shipping container solution, comprising three 20-foot site offices; a 20-foot storage container for tools and equipment; a 20-foot first aid room; three 20-foot lunch rooms; and two 20-foot toilet and washing facilities. “This project was a great opportunity to showcase our solutions for a small footprint,” says Gavin Bentley, Royal Wolf’s Regional Manager, Victoria.
A key feature of The Stack was the built-in storage solution, featuring Royal Wolf’s award-winning Wolf Lock, an easy-to-open handle with a safety exit feature, even when the door is locked.
“The Wolf Lock is really easy to operate, which minimises any manual handling issues. Everyone on the site – from new contestants to experienced trades – can use it with ease,” says Gavin.
The Block 2020 airs on the Nine Network from Sunday August 23 at 7pm.
