Project Manager / Start-up Consultant - Phase 1
In 2011-12, the Justice and Community Safety Directorate (JSA) and the ACT Emergency Services Agency (ESA) identified the need to relocate and refurbish 12 ACT Fire and Rescue and ACT Ambulance Service Stations throughout Canberra, in order to achieve minimum response times. The project required the development of building "templates" for installation on sites with existing facilities or new greenfield sites across the territory. Required facilities included appliance bays, living quarters, offices, training rooms, ancillary related facilities with detailed services and functional requirements. External facilities included appliance storage, drill yards and accessible plant at ground level.
The design was developed to meet three separate sustainability standards identified as 'baseline', 'best practice' and 'leading edge' to provide the client with flexibility in achieving a variety of sustainability outcomes.
