Victor P Taffa
A major air-conditioning upgrade at Hervey Bay Courthouse has reduced energy consumption and supported a dozen jobs.
Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Yvette D’Ath said the $468,000 investment improved the equipment’s efficiency, effectiveness and reliability.
“Local Hervey Bay contractors MVO Services had up to 12 people employed on site each day a great boost for the local economy.” Attorney-General D’Ath said.
“It was a timely investment, coming more than 2 decades after the Hervey Bay Courthouse was opened in 1995.”
“Upgrade included the replacement of 2 main mechanical switchboards, 5 air conditioning units and ductwork.” Attorney-General D’Ath said.
“Air-conditioning controls were also upgraded, and a new air-conditioning split system was installed in the court’s data room.”
“New air-handling units will improve energy efficiency and reduce the overall energy consumption of the court complex.” Attorney-General D’Ath said.
Other regional capital works upgrades recently completed or underway included:
- Refurbishment of Kingaroy Courthouse ($5.3 Million),
- Upgrades to Bundaberg Courthouse ($2 Million),
- Rockhampton Courthouse ($12 Million),
- Townsville Courthouse ($9 Million),
- Beenleigh Courthouse ($11 Million).
