This blog has previously mentioned our work amongst fine old dames of the Melbourne CBD. Greater Melbourne has many fine heritage buildings as well. While some have had major face lifts or even been re-purposed, we went off to Healesville to perform our regular maintenance activities on two iconic hotels which have served the local and travelling communities pretty continuously for over a century. And of course their Essential Services require regular maintenance to comply with the standards we all expect.
Healesville – The Healesville Hotel
On a lovely day in March, and there have been a few, we are scheduled to run our routine maintenance checks in the Healesville Hotel.
As usual we start with opening the fire alarm panel, and we select test mode before we get going.
A quick visual check of the fire response equipment is undertaken on each level.
In this case we had been advised that one of the extinguishers had been discharged, so we brought a replacement. You can see that the pressure gauge on the depleted unit shows 0 kPa. This unit had been withdrawn and held in the office.
Before finishing we admire the shipment of fine wines just delivered and about to be properly stowed – we’d love to stay and help with that – maybe another time.
Healesville – Grand Hotel
Again a check of the fire alarm panel for any messages of alarms and confirm that everything is consistent with full functionality.
We check go through various prompts and update the log books as we go.
Again we check all the fire equipment on each level and confirm that the schematics posted on each level, for the use of guests, is in alignment with the actual equipment in place.
All is good in these Hotels, and the diners can get on with their pallet cleansers.
