There will be periodic disruptions to the air conditioning serving Level 1 of West Block in QBP to upgrade the BMS control systems.

Affected areas

  • QBP (80), Level 1 West Block PC2 and PC3 Labs


  • Start: Monday, 22 January 2024
  • Finish: Friday, 2 February 2024
  • Times: 7:00am to 8:30pm

Work details

The work will require the some of the mechanical equipment to be operated in manual mode while the controls are upgraded.

These systems will be closely monitored during the cutover process.

Project details

The Building Management System serves an important role in the functioning of QBP, not just air conditioning control but in monitoring critical plant and equipment. The BMS field controllers were installed in 2001 and have reached end of life. They are beginning to fail with spare parts no longer available.
This upgrade will replace the old controls with new to keep the building functioning for another 20 years.
