We have just hired a new recruit.
Meet Zac, our new Makita Robot Vac.
Dental and Medical Fitout sites are dusty, noisy places. Especially when we are working feverishly to complete a quality fitout in 6 weeks as is often the case. During the fitout, its very important to keep the site clean and clear. Clear workspaces are safer, more efficient, more enjoyable for our tradespeople and most importantly, a clean worksite looks good from the client’s perspective. Tradesmen are expensive cleaners. Apprentices learn best when they are drilling, cutting and installing, not when they are cleaning.
So the solution is our new Makita Robot, Zac the Vac. He runs around all day keeping the site clear and dust free. Running on standard Makita 18v batteries, he’ll work for hours and is easily recharged with our normal charging equipment. And one of his best qualities is that he loves to work the night shift. We set him off as we leave and he works for half the night, finding his way into all the rooms of our fitout. We don’t even need to remove our tools and materials, he just works around them. And we arrive the next morning to the cleanest site in the building.
Zac never complains, never spends time texting or disappearing to the bathroom repeatedly. He always looks smart and so far has not asked for any days off to attend music festivals. He’s not perfect but he is a trusted and respected member of the Commodore team.
