The project involved the replacement of the existing Chiller located above the Events Cinemas at St Luke’s, the job took several weeks of planning as well as engineering of new PFC Channel beams that need to span the length of the existing plinths these needed to be precisely made to suit the new Trane Chiller that was to be installed complete with new Seismic Mounts. In addition to the engineering & planning the time frame to complete the project was less than 48 hours, to add there was an existing Gantry that had to be removed then reinstated in order to get the crane into position to complete the lift. Thanks to a huge team effort from all Chillex staff and subcontractors – NZ Crane, Machinery relocation’s, DCP, Carson Electrical, CTS, Qwerty & Pacific Insulation and assistance from the consultants at Agile and Scentre Management from St Luke’s the job was completed without an issues. Another successful Chiller replacement.

G-Force are the current North Harbour Div 1 Men’s champions, a title they have held for 3 consecutive seasons.  They have had another great start to the season with 5 wins, scoring 40 runs for and only 8 runs against, having play 3 of their 5 games this season on the world-class Rosedale Park skin diamonds. 

In September this year Myles Tibbits father (G-Force catcher), Ray Tibbits, passed away.  He was involved with North Harbour and NZ Softball for many years and was instrumental in the redevelopment of Rosedale Park skin diamonds and stadium for the 2013 Men’s Softball World Cup.  To honour Ray’s contribution to North Harbour and NZ Softball, a ceremony was held before G-Forces game against Bandits on 9 November 2019, naming the scoreboard on Freeman Field (Diamond 1) in his honour. 

The game against Bandit was one of the toughest games G-Force has had this season, with a G-Force playing with lot of emotion.  The boys were proud to play hard and takeout the game 4-1, on such a special day for the Tibbits whanau.

This week G-Force take on Navy on Diamond 3, Rosedale Park at 4pm

The challenge was set down by A.E Smith for a head to head Go-Kart Challenge with the undefended Chillex Racing team which was held down at Hampton Downs.
A big thank you to Gripple for organising and sponsoring this event between the two companies and for putting on a spectacular BBQ afterwards and a few cold ones. Everyone had a great day – especially the Chillex Team as we kicked A.E. Smith butts and won yet again the Go-Kart trophy. Bring it on again next year!!

Joining Forces to Support Mercy Hospice

Mercy Hospice

It all started on an early sunny Sunday morning – J. A. Russell Ltd’s annual poker run for their petrol head customers who want any excuse to take their V8 cars out for a blast around the country side. After a great cruise around the highlights of West Auckland and surrounding area we ended up at MOTAT where a fully catered lunch was waiting for us and of course one or two quiet ales.  This year all money raised for this event went to Mercy Hospice in appreciation for all the wonderful work they do for the Auckland Community. .

Subsequent to the poker run the good folk at Chillex Maintenance, Lewins Electrical and J. A. Russell Ltd joined forces to donate a new 7KW hiwall to Mercy Hospice for their accounts office.  Chillex Maintenance supplied the hi-wall unit, Lewins Electrical installed and wired up the unit and J. A. Russell Ltd supplied electrical materials needed to get the job done.   Mercy Hospice were very grateful and here is what they said:

 “Thank you so much for joining together to help Mercy Hospice.  We are very grateful to all of you for supporting our services by providing and installing a new air conditioning unit for our future Chapel (currently being used as office space).

“The team using this space are now cosy and warm and this summer they will be able to throw away the portable fans and keep cool.  We also realise that it was not the easiest of installations with the wiring having to travel up, in and around the ceiling but they made it look easy, were totally obliging and breezed through it with no fuss!!  100% Recommend!!

Thank you again for being part of our hospice community and for your generous and thoughtful support.”
