The Smart Infrastructure Manual: Design and Construction (Smart Infrastructure) is implemented through various activities during the infrastructure delivery phase. Further guidance is provided in Smart Infrastructure and Smart Infrastructure Manual Checklist (Checklist).
The ESD and WOL Plan submitted at tender should apply the guidance provided in the ESD and WOL Plan Guide.
All clauses in Smart Infrastructure shall be addressed in the design unless explicitly stated otherwise in the Design Brief. Development of the Design Brief is detailed here. The Smart Infrastructure requirements are progressively demonstrated through the submission of the Checklist. The Checklist is submitted during the design review stages and provides Defence:
All clauses in Smart Infrastructure relating to construction activities shall be addressed and demonstrated in the relevant environmental management plan or equivalent as required under the relevant Contract. Further information can be found here. At Construction Completion the following is to be submitted to Defence:
These documents are to be submitted through SMART.Infrastructure@defence.gov.au .
Smart Infrastructure requires the submission of the Metering Strategy at the end of both the design and construction stage of Defence infrastructure. The Metering Strategy is used to inform the Resource Data Management System and compare the resource intensity performance targets predicted during design against actual loading following construction, and then again to the ongoing performance of the building during operation (Figure 1). The Metering Strategy is used to also inform the following project delivery stages:
Figure 1 - Monitoring and feedback throughout the infrastructure lifecycle
Where a Post Occupancy Evaluation has been undertaken for a project, in addition to other submission requirements under the relevant Contract, a copy of the report is to be submitted through SMART.Infrastructure@defence.gov.au .
The electricity, gas and water sub-meters installed and connected remotely to the Resource Data Management System during commissioning will enable Defence to monitor and undertake resource consumption data analysis at a site, regional, and national level during the operation of infrastructure. The Metering Strategy will be used to inform the Resource Data Management System and Defence’s Garrison Estate Management System (GEMS).
