Our services on the project included mechanical, electrical plumbing, and fire protection engineering, as well as security and communications consultancy. A major challenge for the team was to provide a fully operational pathology department to serve the hospital next door while the Centre for Children’s Health Research was still under construction. Again, careful building services design provided the solution, allowing the pathology clinic a level of independence from the rest of the building.

In addition, chilled and hot water, gas, power, communications and security monitoring are all provided on a precinct basis, meaning a significant coordination effort was required from our engineers to guarantee high performance across the site.
