In 2014 Collins Square comprised 3 buildings along the recently extended Collins Street. Construction was underway for the remainder of the precinct. The challenge was to integrate AS3745:2010 compliance for the existing buildings and to adapt the systems, processes and planning as the precinct grew. Emergency planning for 3 neighbouring buildings is relatively straightforward, yet as the development of the site matured these three buildings would be intertwined with two more substantial sized towers.
A flexible approach to planning ensured that as the physical infrastructure changed, the emergency plan could adapt to suit. This strategy was also applied to training sessions for appointed emergency personnel within each building. Eventually, as the precinct nears completion, the Emergency Plan and the allied training for emergency personnel and occupants alike is conducted as a precinct as opposed to five separate buildings.
