In-house maintenance now more efficient with new design

Bacchus Marsh Coaches, part of the larger Donric Group of companies, were faced with a challenge.

They are justifiably proud of their modern fleet of luxury coaches, charter and school buses, which are serviced regularly at 5,000km intervals. All Bacchus Marsh Coaches’ vehicle maintenance is undertaken by their qualified in-house personnel, in order to ensure the highest levels of reliability, comfort and safety for their clients.

They needed to develop a bus workshop that would continue to meet their growing business’s needs. Levanta went to work on producing a detailed workshop layout to meet Bacchus Marsh Coaches’ requirements.

A full-featured turn-key workshop fitout

A central feature of the new workshop fitout was a 15 metre service pit, complete with ventilation, engineered jacking rail, and AC Hydraulics pit jack. The pit allows Bacchus Marsh Coaches to perform servicing much more efficiently than before.

Levanta installed a compressor and full compressed air ring main, to deliver air to wherever and whenever it’s needed, throughout the workshop.

An integral part of the new design was the installation of all oil lines in stainless steel piping, along with their associated pumps, reels and guns. This was an important consideration, because the system needed to be engineered to ensure sufficient flow rates from the guns, even in the typical cold weather of the Bacchus Marsh area.

After their initial engagement with Levanta, Bacchus Marsh Coaches decided to go ahead and install a BM roller brake tester and play detectors to ensure even greater flexibility and efficiency with their in-house bus maintenance.
