Not long after founding BizRebuild, the Business Council’s coordinated response to the Australian bushfire catastrophe, they reached out to ATCO for help to get the bushfire ravaged village of Mogo back in business.
In just two weeks, ATCO’s Sydney team designed, sourced, dispatched and installed 13 demountable structures in Mogo – worth around $200,000.
The Mogo pop-up mall provided a tangible, immediate way for the community to rebuild. It has provided temporary accommodation for local businesses who lost their premises, equipment and merchandise when the village was hit hard by bushfires on New Year’s Eve, as well as new accommodation for the Mogo Local Aboriginal Land Council.
As the Mogo business community have since said, these modular buildings enabled them to get back to work and get their lives back together again.
Global CEO Nancy Southern said: “I am so proud of the people of ATCO. Their hard work, determination and courage have truly made a difference in the communities we serve.’’ At the launch of the Mogo pop-up mall, Ms Southern donated an additional $1 million to BizRebuild.
