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).
