Queensland Emergency Operations Centre

Napier & Blakeley are just completing their role as Quantity Surveyors on the new QEOC building at Kedron Park in Brisbane.

This world-class communications centre, the largest emergency operations centre in the southern hemisphere, enables best practice strategic response and planning for daily emergencies and incidents and coordinated disaster management for the Queensland Government.

The building was centre of attention in the recent South East Queensland floods and Cyclone Yasi as it became the broadcast facility for regular bulletins by State Premier Anna Bligh and Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

The 14,500 m2 building uses green technology throughout and the project is designed to achieve a 5-star Green Star rating. Sustainable features include full water recycling, rainwater harvesting, low-energy lighting and on-site power generation. Information and communication technology forms a major part of the project and is one of the key elements in it achieving “world class facility” status.

Napier and Blakeley provided full Quantity Surveying services throughout the design and construction of this $45 million development including cost planning, value management, bills of quantities and full post contract on behalf of the Department of Emergency Services. Building works commenced in July 2009 and were completed in December 2010.
