Estimator - Rope Access
Matt brings over 12 years’ experience in construction to the company. Loyal and hardworking, Matt has been with Total Access for over 5 years. In this time, he has shown his abilities from starting as a Level 1 rope tech through to a rope access estimator/ project manager. Matt shows his full potential when faced with access challenges by his unsure clients. “We pride ourselves in coming up with a solution and spending the time with our clients, when our competitors wont.”
Matt began his working career in 2006 as an apprentice plumber. He finished his trade in 2010 and began working for himself as a sub- contractor. When a rain day arose, he contacted Stuart from TAS and lined up a day of labouring work. After a day’s work, an idea turned into a reality and Matt completed his Level 1 rope access course. Matt was quite fresh to the rope access industry and it showed! But after some hard work and dedication he got in the swing of things and progressed quickly.
“After coming from the plumbing industry, I wasn’t familiar with rope access nor the jobs that we would get asked to do. We have done all sorts of work from painting, rendering, concreting, lighting, rigging, signage, gas inspections etc. It’s the diversity that keeps me interested and finding a solution for our clients”.
Over the years, Matt has worked his way into an estimating role and now spends most of his time quoting jobs. Occasionally he gets out on the ropes to dust off the cobwebs, but with the rope division pumping its hard to find the time.
Supervisor - Scaffold

He is also a qualified roof plumber and has good sound carpentry skills and also brings that valuable industry knowledge to our Total Access team. Greg is committed to servicing all clients to the best of his ability by building the safest scaffolds, always on time, meeting and more often than not exceeding our clients expectations.
Greg prides himself on his communication skills on every job he does whether it be coordinating with clients, solving issues, organising transport and the final product of supplying a safe and functional scaffold. He is firm but fair with his team and is a pleasure to be around as he always has a positive can do attitude and never without a smile on his face. He manages a team of 20 and at the busy times up to 30 guys, a mixture of experienced scaffolders and labourers on daily basis. He also organises and allocates labour and also booking in jobs within the scaffold division and is still always prepared to ‘jump on the tools’ and show the lads how its done!
Greg says… “I enjoy coming to work at Total Access whether it be on the tools or in the office, the team here are always very supportive and stick behind you.”

Bobby has worked with Total Access Solutions for over 4 years now and started out as the yard assistant and now runs the yard and is responsible for 2 team members. Bobby served 10 years in the military and has always been involved in warehousing as a general hand or as a warehouse supervisor.
Always the first to arrive at the yard (sometimes at 3.30am!) Bobby has very high standards, is incredibly committed to his role and the business and is largely responsible for the high level of service we provide our clients.
Bobby says… “I believe I have a great work ethic, will always go the extra mile and wouldn’t ask anyone in my control to do something that I haven’t done or am not prepared to do myself”.
His duties involve picking of gear lists, loading and unloading of TAS Vehicles, running the Yard so it runs smoothly and effectively, delegating work to anyone assigned to work in the yard, liaising with Customers and Suppliers. He is actively involved with the day to day running of the scaffold division and of his most important roles is liaising with the Scaffold Supervisor, estimators and of course, to ensure scaffold goes out in the correct sequence, to the right address and on time every time.
I have spent a few years in the Scaffolding World starting on the tools swinging a hammer and loving every minute of it as time went by, I found myself taking on new challenges such as Leading Hand, Supervision, Co-ordinating, Estimating & Superintendent, during this journey I meet a lot of great people. I have travelled around Australia on many major projects such as Darwin LNG / Karratha LNG and Barrow Island Phillip Island and many more, during this time I have learnt many things.
Today I have been blessed to be given a position with a great team Total Access Solutions as an Estimator, knowing some of the Current team members such as Greg Malaki, Rob Garland made the transition effortless. To join such a close nett and experienced team with great values is very comforting. I look forward to maintaining the high integrity set by the existing team.
