Rork Projects was engaged by the Justice and Community Safety Directorate to upgrade the Alexander Maconochie Centre, a correctional facility located in Canberra, ACT.
We were tasked with upgrading the site Building Management System hardware components and installing new software to enhance efficiency and provide monitoring of water, electrical, and gas consumption. This enables the end user to manage consumption to improve building efficiency, as well as increasing performance, reliability, resilience, and maintainability of the building services.
Rork Projects took all necessary measures to comply with COVID-19 requirements, ensuring the safety of all workers on the site. The team also underwent security awareness training prior to working in the facility to ensure the highest level of security for the inmates and staff.
Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic and the need to maintain operations, Rork Projects was able to complete the project with no interruptions to the facility’s operations. The project was completed on time and within budget and has received positive feedback from both the client and the wider community.
The Alexander Maconochie Centre upgrade was a complex and challenging project, requiring a high level of expertise in correctional facility construction and management. The project team worked closely with the client, to ensure that all work was carried out to the highest standards of quality, safety, and security, providing recommendations to the client on how to better improve energy efficiency in the future which could be considered by the end user and adopted at any time post completion.
As an Indigenous business, we proudly acknowledge that this project was completed on the lands of the Ngunnuwal people.
