New Academic Street Project
The main aim of the New Academic Street project is to improve the student experience at RMIT’s flagship City campus.
Students will have more places to relax, collaborate and study. Fundamental administrative tasks such as enrolment and program queries, will be managed easily and efficiently without waiting in a queue.
The first phase of this transformation involved a major civil engineering project to link 4 of their existing buildings, opening the campus to the surrounding streetscape and creating light-filled laneways, glass-roofed arcades and rooftop urban spaces
AEFS were required to design and install a solution that replaced the 4 existing stand-alone fire evacuation systems in these buildings into a single, fully integrated system that provides protection across the whole precinct.
Keeping the evacuation system operational in a heavily populated university environment whilst performing the upgrade.
Bollard Installation and Integration Project
The installation of bollards across and adjacent to roads has become common practice in Australia and around the world since a spate of incidents involving the use of vehicles as weapons against pedestrians.
As part of their efforts to ensure student and faculty safety, Deakin University has installed such bollards at both its Burwood and Waurn Ponds Campuses
AEFS have integrated all of these newly installed bollards to the Fire Protection Systems on both of these campuses so that they retract into the ground when a fire alarm is triggered; ensuring that Emergency Responders are not delayed in reaching the building in alarm.
Integrating the many different fire system protocols across both campuses to ‘talk’ to the bollards in a logical and sequential manner.
City of Monash
The City of Monash engaged AEFS to carry out a Fire Safety audit of an Aged Care Facility which revealed that the sprinkler pipework originally installed did not meet design safety standards.
AEFS carried out the removal of all existing sprinkler pipework, replacing the entire network throughout the ceiling space of the building. Careful planning ensured that this project was completed without causing any disturbance to the staff or occupants of the facility.
Due to the very limited workspace inside the ceiling, the measuring and fabrication of the pipework had to be carried out offsite. Given the margin for error was so small, it required precise measuring and cutting to ensure a perfect fit.
