About This Project

Bioscience Precinct, University of Queensland, Brisbane, QLD

$130 Million

As the client, the University of Queensland and CSIRO, required separate zones within the building envelope.

This necessitated a briefing process to identify the unique needs and cultures of the respective businesses, and demanded different design solutions for each of the zones.  It was the largest laboratory development in Australia when completed in the early 2000s.  At this this time, the facility set new benchmarks for Occupational Health and Safety, workplace amenity, laboratory flexibility and technical execution.

The 35,000m2 facility includes:

  • cell biology/molecular biology laboratories;
  • chemistry and computational biology (bioinformatics) laboratories;
  • insect, fish and rodent facilities;
  • high field strength NMR and cryo-electron microscopy laboratories;
  • PC2 & PC3 level containment laboratories; and
  • a 300 seat auditorium with separate public access.
