Title : Designing Australia’s National Post Entry Quarantine Facility


It’s not every day that an architect has the opportunity to design the Australian National Post Entry Quarantine (PEQ) facility. And in your own back yard. In all our years as Specialists in Research Design, namely Laboratories, Biomedical, Pharmaceutical, Bioresources containment greenhouse design, the PEQ was one project opportunity not to be missed. This was very special and close to our hearts and to work on preserving life for companion animals (and others) as they transition into a meaningful life into Australia.We are talking RED for Animals, and GREEN for Plants.  But curiously, the same site was developed for Victoria’s Covid human quarantine – which will be illustrated as well.
