Cancer Research Institute


The O’Connors team were able to work in close collaboration with the head contractor, client, design team and quantity surveyor through the value management and modelling phases to deliver an exceptionally high value outcome for the customer.

Scope of Works:

O’Connors was contracted to deliver the full gamut of mechanical services including HVAC, fume cupboards, laboratory gas plant and distribution piping, autoclaves and specialized Animal House equipment.

Project Successes:

The Health Innovation Building will be one of the most advanced research centres in the country, and the O’Connors team have been able to deliver a very complex construction phase in a short space of time through:

  • Collaborative design development: through inclusive engineering and modelling meetings the RFI process was streamlined and time saved.
  • Dedication to true BIM coordination: O’Connors hosted a Design Hub in our head offices in which the modellers from every service trade worked side-by-side in efficiently developing a fully coordinated model prior to start on site.
  • Offsite fabrication of numerous components including of a 14-storey main duct riser, which allowed most of the vertical duct risers in the building to be installed in just three days on site.
