This project involved the refurbishment of 28 Q Blocks, 6 P Blocks, Armoury/Office Building (H0390) & the Integrated Medical Facility. The project was located within Lone Pine Barracks which is a Defence assets infrastructure area part of the Singleton Military Area. The works were carried out in a staged approach to facilitate the ongoing occupation and use of the Base.
The scope of works included the following:
- Upgrade of Q Blocks, 28 Buildings to ensure the dormitory type configuration were redesigned to allow for mixed gender use.
- To meet the Commanding Officer (CO) directive for the removal of Gender Restrictions, the 6 x P Block abolition buildings were required to be upgraded for mixed gender use.
- The existing Armoury Office/Magazine Store (H0390 building) did not meet DDA compliance. The St Hilliers team therefore upgraded the building to ensure it was code compliant.
- Upgrade works were completed to the Integrated Health Facility which is the main Medical Facility within SMA. The team upgraded the alarms to protect high value vaccines stored within the facility.
