Melbourne Initiatives

Central Plant Replacement and Upgrade

Project Overview The existing air conditioning system at 115 Victoria Parade Melbourne is reaching the end of its design life. The plant is being renewed and centralised on the rooftop (see image below). A gradual upgrade and connection to the new rooftop plant will take place on a staged floor-by-floor basis as areas are refurbished.

Project update The first stages of this project have been undertaken as part of the Library and Consequential Works Projects. Further works will be undertaken as other projects are implemented.
