Simon Waldren, Founder of Apex Wiring Solutions to speak at CoLab 2019
Simon relocated to Australia with his young family in 2012; with his wife and their one-year old twins they moved to be near their family in Melbourne, bringing Apex Wiring Solutions - Modular Wiring to Australia and New Zealand.
Simon started this Australian based company that services both Australia and New Zealand on his own; drawing upon experience and know-how from the modular services market in Europe and Middle East. With first-hand experience in DfMA, DfM and DfA, Lean Manufacturing, open book collaboration contracts through to J.I.T supply chain management and process build.
The intention was to bring a proven technology into this market that openly embraces “Innovation and Progress,” to help facilitate smarter build in Australia and NZ.
With varying degrees of uptake over the last 7 years Apex Modular Wiring has been successfully utilised in all main sectors of construction throughout Australia and NZ. This includes Hospitals, Hotels, Student living, Commercial, Residential, Government, Schools and Prefabrication. One highlight being the involvement in the Sunshine Coast University Hospital project in QLD which has achieved the building industry’s highest honour with an exceptional six-star Green Star Healthcare v1 Design and As-Built rating.
Simon and the Apex team are active members and advocates of PrefabAUS, and PrefabNZ; we are also a proud contributor to the Modular Handbook released in May 2017. We endeavour to continue our collaborative work and commitment whilst being a key part of the next generation of thinking and processes for smarter build in Australia. We believe this will be achieved through inclusive and integrated design processes and prefabrication.
Apex works hard to advocate for Modular Construction, helping to drive the industry to better identify the challenges and provide solutions to adapt to future market needs. Read about CoLab here .
