The challenge

MCI is a well-established motor coach manufacturer in North America. Their executive management team were focussed on a corporate branding for 2019 with a focus on a uniform facilities matching the corporate colors.

The project scope required exterior facade repairs, power washing, repainting and urethane applications in the wash bay areas.

MCI partnered with Omega Industries to take on the responsibility to project manage the painting and repair works, without the disruption of day to day operations.

Key problems

  • Working around a fast paced office and mechanic workshop.
  • Overspray risk near a large fleet of motor coaches.
  • Wash bays have heavy moisture content in the atmosphere.
  • Ensuring colors match MCI blue.


Our approach

Our game plan for this project involved separating and exterior and interior team to simultaneously work on two sections.

  • We removed all flaking and defective coatings and used a water pressure psi machines to effectively clean the building.
  • Selected moisture-curing products to address the moisture content in the wash bay areas.
  • Roller application was used to eliminate overspray risks near MCI vehicles.
  • Allocated a 10+ painters for interior works to quickly complete works and be out of the way.

Creating solutions that work

By first getting to know the project, we can deliver and execute a project strategy that exceeds our client’s expectations. Omega Industries delivered a large workforce with a strategy to overcome major production bottlenecks to complete the MCI project.

Painting in a busy work environment.

By effective project management and planning to execute a highly productive painting crew, Omega were able to complete the project 2 days ahead of schedule. Proven strategies boosted the project timeline – resulting in adequate time for other preparations to take place prior to students entering their freshly painted dorms.

Breaking down our strategy

1. Eliminate Bottlenecks

The cost of admin involved in checking the defect list, enquire about missing items and reviewing the completion far outweighed the cost of additional paint and labor required to paint all walls. Our client, was thrilled for not only the rollout speed, but the additional value achieved for a fresh coat of paint in an room rather than small touch-ups.

2. Project Planning & Systems

Omega effectively divided the workforce across each level to complete works simultaneously, creating friendly competition between crews and allowing a production line mentality of painting dorms.
