The building design, construction and operation of QASP fit within the framework of the University of Queensland’s ‘Ecologically Sustainable Design (ESD) Guidelines’ which aims to incorporate sustainability into every aspect of the facility. One example of this is the non-infectious effluent waste being directed to an environmentally friendly sedimentation basins located away from all animal holding facilities. Temperature and other environmental parameters are managed by an automated Building Management System (BMS) designed to increase energy efficiency.
