Go to top of page Campbell Road Precinct Road Works

UQ is about to begin a major project to improve air-conditioning and services in the Campbell Rd precinct of the St Lucia Campus.

Work between the Social Sciences building (24), and the Central Chiller Plant Room (59A) will mean traffic and parking changes from Monday 21 May to Friday 31 August 2018.

Campbell Rd will be closed to general traffic from University Drive to Campbell Place. The only parking available in this area will be three marked accessible parking bays and a dedicated space for UQ Psychology Clinic clients.

Impact on pedestrian access will be kept to a minimum, with signage indicating any changed routes.

The project will affect vehicle access to the Social Sciences building (24), Abel Smith Lecture Theatre (23), Duhig Tower (2), Duhig North (12), Duhig Link (12A) and the Union Complex (21). Noisy works will take place outside business hours whenever possible.

The work will increase air-conditioning capacity in buildings in the precinct and will upgrade electrical and communications conduits.

For all enquiries, contact Property & Facilities Division Construction Project Manager Brad Mortimer brad.mortimer@uq.edu.au, 0407 832 554.

Go to top of pageLong Pocket Excavation Works

To continue improving service and infrastructure on the Long Pocket Campus, Property and Facilities are moving forward with plans to extend chilled water lines from Tuckeroo Building (1018A) to Foxtail Building (1019).

This work will involve trenching and laying pipes across Discovery Drive, through the carpark and road leading to Foxtail. This will cause some traffic disruption on Discovery Drive and the closure of the road and carparks leading to the loading docks of Foxtail for the duration of these works.

Property and Facilities are going to be working closely with the contractor to ensure traffic disruptions and car park closures are kept to a minimum. Along with the road closures there will be some noisy works in relation to digging.

This project is expected to take approximately 10 weeks with traffic disruptions on Discovery Drive expected to take no longer than 2 weeks. Alternative traffic flow arrangements will be advised closer to the project commencement. This project is expected to start in mid-July and additional information will be provided closer to when works commence.

Please see this layout for the areas affected by this project.

For further information or any concerns you may have, please contact Jeremy Moynihan, on j.moynihan@uq.edu.au.

Go to top of pageSt Lucia Campus - Air Conditioning Operation

Due to the corrosion of cooling tower pipework, the effectiveness of Air Conditioning within the Buildings on the Central Chiller Precinct is being impacted. This is most prominent on days of high ambient temperature (>32°C) as well as high humidity. Air conditioning systems may struggle to maintain conditions during these periods – while temperatures are unlikely to fluctuate markedly, humidity control may be impacted. Planning is underway to carry out pipe replacement work during the coming winter months. Strategies are being developed to limit chilled water supply to lower priority areas during high ambient condition days. This will help to divert chilled water to spaces which require more critical temperature and humidity control. The buildings affected are:

  • Forgan Smith
  • Duhig
  • Steele
  • Richards
  • Parnell
  • Physics Annexe
  • Global Change Institute
  • Learning Innovation Building
  • Goddard
  • Michie
  • Biological Sciences Library
  • James & Mary Emelia Mayne Centre
  • Hartley Teakle

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.

The April schedule is here and May schedule 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.
Please note; Downer Electrical require a minimum of 48 hours’ notice prior to your scheduled test date for changes to occur.

Go to top of page Physics Annexe  (building 6)  - Construction of a new level and fit out project

Physics Annexe

Construction will begin on the Physics Annexe (building 6) with the addition of a new level (level 5) and the fit out of the space.  Works will commence late November, and will continue over the Christmas break, with expected completion by August 2018. This project will deliver close to 1000 square meters of new modern functional space on top of an existing building.  The Faculty of Science will be relocating from their current home in Building 69 (level 3) into this new space.Physics

Tenders have been received and assessed. Site establishment will commence from 23 November 2017.  The build is composed of two main parts, firstly the construction of the new external level, and secondly, the fit out of the newly created space. A crane will be erected on site - location plan available here. Once the exterior shell is weather-tight, the crane will be removed from site and the interior fit out part of the project will commence, likely reducing impacts to the precinct at that point. Crane removal is expected by the beginning of May 2018.

Information/briefing sessions have been scheduled for 7th and 9th November 2017 to inform all stakeholders in the precinct and those that utilise the Prentice Building.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, and thank you for your understanding during this time. For further information or any concerns you may have, please contact Zak Williams, Construction Project Manager on 336 57409 or email z.williams@pf.uq.edu.au.
