Project Spotlight – The Australian National University

Gas Detection Australia was recently commissioned to install gas detectors throughout The Australian National University’s new Research School of Physics building in Canberra.

What did we do?

We commissioned 124 Gas Detectors throughout labs, cleanrooms, plant rooms and lifts for a range of standard gases, including hydrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen chloride, and exotic gases like arsine, phosphine, silane, octafluorocyclobutane, nitrous oxide and fluorine. Some of these were normal gas detectors and some were special Duct Mounted Versions.

How did this project come about?

We were requested to do this job for the new School of Physics Building as they have built a new state-of-the-art building which houses multiple new stable labs, as well as a Cleanroom with a sub-fab floor below. 

Notable experiences/highlights?

This is a one-of-a-kind experience due to the specialised type of facility that has been built. It is an honour to have been able to work on a new type of facility that is groundbreaking in Australia. A highlight for us would have been working in the amber light lithology room and cleanroom and having to wear a special PPE suit. It is not every day you see this much thought and excitement for a project with this type of technology.
