About This Project

Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO), Fisherman’s Bend, VIC

$41M

This project involves the upgrading and expansion of DSTO laboratory facilities at Fisherman’s Bend, Melbourne.

Having opened in 1999, DSTO is the oldest defence science laboratory in Australia. New, highly specialised, purpose-built laboratories will enable DSTO to research into defence against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats.

The scope of the project involves upgrading and refurbishing existing buildings and the provision of new buildings. These include:

  • Upgrading an existing Chemical Lab to Toxic Suite capability;
  • A new Counter-Terrorism facility;
  • Highly specialised research laboratories (PC2 & PC3);
  • A new Secure Communication facility;
  • Protective Security upgrade to existing facilities;
  • Integrated Detection System (IDS) and Security Lighting, across entire site;
  • A Site Security and Crisis Management Centre; and
  • A new Science and Technology Store

The works are expected to be completed in late 2016.
