INTERNATIONAL TERMINAL EMERGENCY LIGHTING UPGRADE
> Timing: Early October 2017 to April 2018
> Investment: $1.7 million
While the current ITB emergency lighting system is fully compliant with all Australian safety standards, the continuing growth in passenger numbers and subsequent expansion of the terminal requires an upgrade of services.
When complete the project will provide the following benefits:
* A new modern, remotely monitored and fully functional single unit emergency lighting system.
* Improved overall system performance.
The project will be carried out in stages to ensure minimum disruption to Terminal operations.
High level staging plans as of September 2017 are:
Stage 1: Early October to late November – initial exploratory work to assist in the development of detailed staging plans; location and logging of all existing emergency lighting.
Stage 2: Late October to early 2018 – replacement of all emergency lighting and exit signage in public areas throughout terminal.
Stage 3: Late October to April 2018 – replacement of all emergency lighting and exit signage in retail tenancies and offices.
