Another Sick BH In SP Turn Around Job Well Done !!!
Just arrived from Sungai Patani, Kedah about 30 minutes ago.
Completed the turn around works for a BH in a factory at Bakar Arang Industrial Estate,
The owner converted one of the building into three BHs in one. Three entrances, two floors each with a dimension of about 40 feet by 100 feet.
When I was brought in for just a short inspection two weeks ago it was just a look see look see.
I was not in the mood to do any major things for the shot trip but after doing the round trip inside, I briefly told him what he should do.
I did not realized that he, the caretaker, been trying out so many things and nothing seem to work.
"Harry I am under big pressure to make these three units successful. I really need your big help."
Well I can see from your face that you have lots of load on your shoulder. Get someone to follow this things that I will list down for you and I think those birds can and will come in to stay.
"Okay, so when can you start? Today can or not?" his reply with no hesitation.
Brother I am here for a walk and you wanted me to start today? Are you sick or what? I am not properly prepared and you want me to do something which we never even talk about the price?
"I don't care the price just get cracking please."
Okay let me make some call and see if my work's Supervisor staying in SP is free to come over.
After a few short minutes my Supervisor came over and I quickly asked him to assemble a few workers. Yes we started the job on the spot.
I was lucky because I carried with me a few boxes of tweeters and amplifiers.
I told the owner to get some building materials (those woods and cement boards) and I will get my hand on some equipment that might help to turn around the BHs.
I attended the top floor first for the first part of the job and once completed I put the unit into operation. I then came down to the ground floor for the second phase of the job. In this way the upstairs was in operation mode while the lower floor being worked upon.
Today, after two weeks I managed to get the house into full operation mode and the transformation was so good that within two weeks, the top floor after into operation mode for only one week has already more then 5 sets of new tenants.
This new masterpiece was inclusive of those clusters and chandeliers tweeters arrangements. The clusters (4 tweeters at those crossing) were with internal sound and the chandeliers (8 tweeters per cluster) were connected to the external sound.
I can see that when we put the sounds on they started to enter the BH and zoomed to the clusters and chandeliers.
Each floor I created two VIP rooms. The entrances into the VIP room were about 3 feet wide. Lots of external sound tweeters (almost 30 pieces). I managed to stumbled onto these twin base tweeters and they seem to be doing very well.
I also included lots of those plastic, foam and aluminum fake nests. Put them closed to those clusters and single tweeters. (Look at the photos). Perfect distance so that they will stimulate the birds to quickly lay their eggs and multiply.
I change the sound to something new and the birds seem to start coming in and out of the house nearly every minute.
I can see some smile on the caretaker's face. Remember he tried nearly every tricks in his sleeves but nothing happened.
Whew what a relief. At least this guy will be my best friend for a long long time....
Best of luck to him and his BH.........................
So you think I am now over with him after this first unit?
Not yet brother. He then asked me to do this:
"Pak Harry can you get your workers to start a similar revamp works in another BH nearby."
Ah Chek, actually how many BHs do you owned?
"Very few la, only 4 but I plan another 2 at least. Not all are mine but JV with my brother. Sikit sikit only. I also wanted those Steel Frames portable type you suggested recently where I can move if the local council chase me out."
Oh my God this is a common traits. Initially will confirmed only one unit and after seeing the results they will start pushing you to the next and then another unit and so forth.
All the while my strategy was to only do one job (repair or newly build) to one person. That first job will be at a reasonable price but for the subsequent units will be the market price.
If this guy block booked all my staff and my time then how am I going to help others?
Hmm... need to tell him nicely so that he won't feel offended.....
