complete. To ensure cohesion across the hospital’s electrical system, this scope will be reviewed, implemented and carefully staged in conjunction with the main electrical switchboard works.

The hydraulic upgrade package will investigate and, where necessary, upgrade hydraulic infrastructure such as valves, pumps, pipe work, tanks and seals. The scope of the package is ultimately to address the deterioration of the hot and cold water infrastructure. These works are underway in buildings 1, 2, 3, 10 and 12.

The heating, ventilation and air-conditioning package included an initial investigation into the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning infrastructure. These identified a number of assets, such as chillers, that require replacement. Additional investigations are also required to ensure that heating, ventilation and air-conditioning infrastructure can maintain a reliable source of heating and cooling ventilation to buildings across the campus in an energy-efficient and cost-effective manner. The procurement, investigation and reporting works are underway, with construction activities expected to commence in January 2018.

The building 10 cold rooms package includes an upgrade and replacement of the ageing mortuary cold rooms. Design works are complete and construction will commence later this year. The fire package includes upgrades to a number of fire systems, both passive and active, on and off campus. Investigation works to define the scope requirements are nearing completion. Minor construction works on and off campus are underway.

For the nurse call and ICT package, in order to facilitate future nurse call and ICT system upgrades, new or expanded communications rooms will be built in buildings 1 and 3. Procurement of a contractor to undertake this work is underway, with construction to commence later in 2017.

The facade package has delivered a detailed audit of external building elements on buildings 1, 2, 3, 10 and 12. Ongoing annual inspections are occurring to determine remediation requirements. The high-rated risks have been resolved and further necessary works, such as roof or facade leaks from rain, will be addressed as they are identified.

The one identified extreme rated risk has been downgraded to a high rated risk, following the introduction of restrictions to building 1 window opening, access restrictions to building 1 balconies/surrounding areas and ongoing monitoring of window condition as part of annual building facade inspections instigated under the program.

In regards to the high-risk rated items identified by the AECOM report at Calvary Public Hospital, Bruce, all items are expected to be completed in 2018. These packages include: the sub-mains upgrade; Marian roof upgrade, calorifiers and dampers project; and the environmental cooling upgrade.

To complement the work packages already outlined, the UMAHA appropriation also funds the development of strategic asset management plans for the ACT Health
