BGIS engaged Nutbrook Group to complete a condition assessment audit report for the Wellington Correctional Centre. The site was impacted by a mice infestation, which damaged both the building fabric and some of its building services.
The nature of the site and the extent of the damage meant this was a complex project. Our approach needed to account for the high-level security requirements of the centre, the limited time frame available to resolve the issues and – being in regional NSW – access to specialist consultants such as a BCA and hygienist.
We worked closely with the Department of Justice and BGIS project team to deliver condition audit reports and tender schedules on time. These reports were then taken out to tender by BGIS for completion of works.
In undertaking this work we addressed some unique challenges, including:
Under complex conditions, Nutbrook Group delivered a high-quality result. The reports identified all aspects of rectifications works required to be undertaken immediately and within the next 5 to 10 years.
These reports were used by quantity surveyors to create tender schedules, helping to prioritise works and avoid duplicating requirements. Tender schedules and audit reports included pricing estimates for the works, which meant reviews were efficient.
