Mp2.3 Fire Upgrades Project

Mp2.3 Fire Upgrades Project

Project Highlights

Fire upgrades to fifty-two Residential Aged Care facilities throughout Queensland and New South Wales.
The project was delivered on time, on budget, and to the Client’s satisfaction.
The project had an exceptional safety record with zero incidents recorded for all facilities.
LEAD Consultants were engaged to facilitate the fire safety upgrades of fifty Residential Aged Care Facilities throughout Queensland. The project intended to ensure compliance with the revised Queensland Development Code following the introduction of the Mandatory Part 2.3 legislation. This legislation was a wide-ranging update of fire safety standards which included but was not limited to fire suppression, smoke compartmentation, fire detection, emergency lighting and exit signage. Parallel legislative changes in New South Wales required similar works on the client’s two additional facilities in New South Wales. The project involved the extensive engagement of various internal and external stakeholders while adhering to a challenging construction timeline.

Obstacle

Given the scope of the project and the particular characteristics of each site, to ensure the tight construction timeline was adhered to, significant attention was needed to manage the various stakeholders. As these upgrades were to be implemented in live environments in which stakeholders of varying levels of health lived, all works needed to be executed with the careful consideration of the resident’s needs and concerns.

Our Approach

LEAD Consultants maintained daily communication to all of the necessary stakeholders in addition to tailoring the scope of works for each facility in order to accommodate the staff and the residents. Additionally, to meet the legislative deadline, several fire services contractors were engaged to carry out the upgrade works, with as many as nine sites being undertaken concurrently.
