Go to top of pageDuhig Lighting Retrofit

As part of a program to improve energy use, a contractor has been engaged to replace fluorescent downlight fittings located in various spaces of the Duhig Tower (2), Duhig Link (12A) and Duhig North (12) on Thursday 22 June to Tuesday 27 June 2017 with more energy efficient LED ones.

A previous survey has identified the location of suitable fittings and only these will be affected by the project.

The new LED light fittings will provide slightly greater light output than the original fluorescent fittings they will replace. Overall the retrofit project will mean better lighting and less energy use.

The work involves setting up ladder/scaffolding equipment, installing LED fittings and carrying out any maintenance required. While the project takes place, access around the contractor’s work area may be restricted. Thus, we kindly request you to use alternative pathways to move around the building.

The UQ Project Manager for this retrofit work is Carlos Fujita-Dimas. For further information or to raise any concerns you may have, please contact Carlos via phone 334-61281 or email c.fujitadimas@uq.edu.au. We apologise for the inconvenience this work may cause and thank you for your patience during this time.

Go to top of pageRCD and Emergency Light Testing - updated

Under the Electrical Safety Act 2002, there is a statutory requirement for RCD trip testing and emergency light testing to be undertaken. This testing will be undertaken by Downer Electrical. Please find the June schedule for St Lucia Campus here (updated including CAI & Gerhmann ) and Gatton Campus here.

Test 1 – RCD Testing
Loss of power supply to power outlets (RCD testing), to minimise disruption this will occur from 6.00am to 8.00am (barring any failures).

The work will involve loss of power to power points, other equipment (including computer servers) and lighting. The loss of power will be for a short time approx. 10 to 20 minutes. If non-conforming devices are found, the power outage time may increase due to the time required to replace the defective device.

Test 2 – Emergency Stop Button Testing
All emergency stop buttons located in laboratories will also be tested during this time.
This may isolate both power and gases to lab floors.

Please be advised to turn off all computers and other electrical devices during this time.
Failure to do so may result in loss of work or damage to electrical equipment/devices.

Test 3 – Emergency Lighting Testing
Loss of power supply to lighting circuits between 6.00am and 3.00pm

During Exit and Emergency lighting tests disruptions will be kept to a minimum, but in some cases due to the current building design only emergency lighting will be available for the duration of the test (generally 90 minutes).

For any questions or concerns you may have regarding this schedule, please contact the relevant parties below.

OTHER NEWS...

Go to top of pageBrisbane City Road Closures – William Street (part of) and Queen’s Wharf Road

The world-class integrated resort development, Queen’s Wharf Brisbane, will begin Early Works from January 2017. Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will feature iconic contemporary architecture alongside beautifully restored heritage buildings, 50 new bars and restaurants and provide locals and tourists with the equivalent of 12 football fields of public space to enjoy.

When complete, Queen’s Wharf Brisbane will transform Brisbane’s CBD from George St to the Brisbane River, from Queen St to Alice St as well as along the Brisbane River’s edge down to the Goodwill Bridge. Importantly, the nine heritage buildings in the precinct play a key role in the design and will be protected and repurposed as part of the finished development.

To revitalise such a large section of the CBD, a number of changes will be necessary around the development area during construction including traffic management.

From 1 January 2017, Queen’s Wharf Rd and William St, between Elizabeth and Margaret Sts, will close to enable work on the integrated resort development to commence. See traffic map here.

Authorised vehicles including emergency service and construction vehicles will have limited access. Pedestrian access around the site will change from 1 January 2017. See pedestrian map here. Prominent signage and notifications will be in place to advise motorists entering the area.

When Queen’s Wharf Brisbane opens, these roads will form key areas within the precinct to enable the safe movement of pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles through and around the integrated resort development. William St will reopen to traffic with the launch of the integrated resort development, expected in 2022.
Destination Brisbane Consortium is working with government, road and transport operators to communicate the road changes and safely minimise any impacts.

The safety of workers, commuters, pedestrians, motorists, cyclists, locals and visitors will be crucial during the project, which will employ more than 2,000 workers during peak construction, and more than 8,000 once operational, expected in 2022.

Some bus routes and bus stop locations have changed as a result of these road closures. To stay informed about bus changes please visit the TransLink website www.translink.com.au, download the MyTransLink App or call 13 12 30.

Property & Facilities Division have the following services within the Archibus ServiceFM module.

1. “Call SAM”  (Small Assets Management) – a new free service

UQ’s Property and Facilities Division have launched a new free service, named “Call SAM” (Small Assets Management), for minor work requests across all UQ campuses.

A carpenter has been appointed for small jobs around all UQ campuses, such as installing white boards, pin boards, pictures, hooks and brackets, door stops/closers and small alterations to cupboards and fixed furniture. 
If the job can be completed in under three hours, the labour will be free. Your unit will need only to pay for significant materials (i.e. a whiteboard).

For information on how to access the "Call SAM" service is available here .

2.  ServiceFM A-Z Directory

For those who are unsure how to categorise a problem type within the Archibus ServiceFM module, we have developed an A-Z Directory which contains details on what each problem type includes, what it doesn’t include, and what additional information P&F requires.  The Service A-Z Directory is available here

3. New Archibus Workflow – “No Quote User Funded”

P&F have also introduced a faster workflow within Archibus for those client funded works which may not require a quotation. This is ideal for urgent work that has relatively low cost and complexity.  To use this option, open the Archibus “create service request” form and in the field “Is User Funded?” select “Yes - No Quotation Required”. Your request will be routed directly to a contractor, via P&F, to complete your request. For these requests, there will be no quotation or estimation approval steps.

New technology has been installed across The University of Queensland’s St Lucia campus car parks to reduce delays and queues for motorists. The new system enables users to see in advance which parking locations are likely to have available spaces when they arrive on campus.

Sensors have been installed at the entry and exit points of each P-series car park, providing a live feed to on-site digital signage, a website and portable devices. The displays and web feed provide staff, students and visitors with up-to-date parking advice. A parking availability app will be developed later this year. Please submit any feedback to pf@pf.uq.edu.au. The full UQ News story is available here.
