LJ Services successfully tendered for a Major Electrical installation at University of Melbourne (UOM) Parkville Campus.
The project consisted of replacement of the existing main switchboard which had reached its maximum capacity. A new 1250A Form 3 Type switchboard was installed, and extensive underground civil works were also undertaken with new alterations to the existing building submains.
Parkville Campus currently houses over 40,000 students. Work was to be carried out without disruption to facility and learning areas and structures within the campus were also classified under the Heritage Registrar. Furthermore, a Bunya Bunya Tree (identified as a tree of significance) was located in close proximity to designated works and and solutions were implemented as various mechanical and building projects were reliant on the completion of these works.
Risks to Students and Staff were mitigated with extensive protection works to ensure public safety while high risk works were carried out out of normal hours, with close consultation from UOM.
LJ Services in collaboration with University of Melbourne staff and NJM Consulting resolved the issue of the impacting the Bunya Bunya Tree exclusion zone by determining an alternative path and resolution,whilst keeping within budget restraints.
