Monitoring success - CSA officially opens new premises
22/05/2012 - The official opening of Campbell Scientific Australia’s new premises was held on Friday 30th March in Townsville, Australia. Tracy Russell
Approximately 40 dignitaries, customers, board members, invited guests and staff attended the function.
We had customers travel from Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide which was very pleasing in view of the long distances involved.
These exciting new premises are the culmination of 19 years of hard work and planning, with a good degree of the credit to go to Bert Tanner, a Director on CSA's Board for most of that time.
Situated on a 6800m2 block, the former ten pin bowling alley building was ideally suited to CSA's current and future needs.
The large open plan frame was completely stripped and redesigned to provide purpose built premises. CSA currently occupies the rear half of the building and in the short to medium term, plan on sub leasing the front half.
The approximate 1000m2 that we now occupy is double the area of our previous premises and will allow us to more than double our capacity before we will need to expand into the front half of the building. This move will then allow us to quadruple our current size and there will still be room for future expansion on the block if needed.
Our Open Day comprised presentation sessions in the morning and afternoon, hands on product displays, and finished with a small celebration at the end of the day. Informative displays and demonstrations of many CS products, as well as an overview of some of our most recent case studies; including some spectacular pictures of applications on the Great Barrier Reef, were prepared for the event.
Products on display included the CS data loggers and peripherals, the new IRGASON integrated gas analyser and sonic anemometer, the range of OBS water quality sensors, our latest family of discrete and composite water samplers, a visibility sensor developed by Campbell Scientific Limited in the UK, a new outdoor camera developed by Campbell Scientific Canada, the Hydrosense II developed here at CSA, various weather stations including the quick deploy FIREHAWK for fire fighting applications, as well a range of equipment suitable for Geotech applications such as the TDR systems we supply.
Thanks to all customers and suppliers that were able to attend and to all CSA staff who put in an extra effort to make this a day to remember.
