The world-class Institute was established to combine research into infectious disease and immunity with teaching excellence, reference laboratory diagnostic services, epidemiology
and clinical services.
The Peter Doherty Institute allows around 700 expert scientist, researchers, clinicians, academics, staff and students to share resources, equipment and knowledge. The project includes PC2, PC3, PC4, QC2 and QC3 laboratories.
The Institute obtained a 5 Star Green Star Design rating under the Education V1 tool.
Challenges of the project included managing the design process towards the successful functional organisation of the building, taking into account the stakeholders' requirements
for both accessibility and high security.
Donald Cant Watts Corke provided a suite of services on this project, including Project Management, Quantity Surveying, Engineering Services, Cost Management, Business Case Development and Superintendent.
