Go to top of pagePartial Air Conditioning Shutdown - Christmas/New Year Period

The areas selected for the shutdown are generally offices and teaching spaces. Rooms with air conditioning which is normally set to run 24/7 are exempt from holiday scheduling and will continue to run normally. Teaching rooms managed through Syllabus Plus will also be unaffected by the partial shutdown.

A change of traffic rules at the UQ Indooroopilly Mine. It has been recognised that the concealed driveway on Isles Road poses significant challenges when attempting to turn right across traffic – there is limited vision from the road and the driveway exit, with vehicles often travelling at speed down the hill and around the corner moving towards the exit. The below changes have been effected to ensure the safety of staff, students and contractors exiting the site:

  • Line markings have been added to the roadway indicating a left hand turn only.
  • A “No Right Turn” sign has also been added to the mirror post directly opposite the exit.

Staff and contractors should take note of the change and exit the site to the left only. Please refer to the photo (right) and the site map here indicating the location of the roadway markings.

For further information about the changes please contact either Leigh Burgess, Manager of Transport Systems, on 336 51948 or email l.burgess@pf.uq.edu.au; or Ryan Anderson, Workplace Health and Safety Manager, Sustainable Minerals Institute, on 334 63122 or email ryan.anderson@uq.edu.au.

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.

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 St Lucia Campus December schedule is here and the Gatton December schedule is 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.
