Major air conditioning upgrade for Hervey Bay Courthouse delivers jobs

Published:

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,” Mrs D’Ath said.

“It was a timely investment, coming more than two decades after the Hervey Bay Courthouse was opened in 1995.

“The upgrade included the replacement of two main mechanical switchboards, five air conditioning units and ductwork.

“The air-conditioning controls were also upgraded, and a new air-conditioning split system was installed in the court’s data room.

“The new air-handling units will improve energy efficiency and reduce the overall energy consumption of the court complex.

“Other regional capital works upgrades recently completed or underway included the refurbishment of Kingaroy Courthouse ($5.3 million) and upgrades to Bundaberg Courthouse ($2 million), Rockhampton Courthouse ($12 million), Townsville Courthouse ($9 million) and Beenleigh Courthouse ($11 million).
