The Northern Territory Government’s new field services building at the Berrimah Farm Science Precinct is now complete. This kicks off a multi-staged program of works for the Department of Primary Industry and Resources that will be the most modern agricultural science precinct in northern Australia.
Take a look at the project here
The field services building consists of a laboratory wing and an administration wing. The laboratory wing will house livestock and plant research and includes a post-harvest lab with a complex drying room with two large ovens to dry plant samples. These facilities will create an epicentre of excellence in Northern Australia for agricultural research, diagnostics and pest and disease surveillance.
Built using a variety of modern materials and finishes, the building features high windows to maximise natural light and runs off a chilled water air conditioning system. The building also features extensive data infrastructure connected to existing building optic fibre with civil works including the construction of a new car park and resurfacing of the existing road.
Jaytex collaborated on many areas of this complex building to ensure practicality, process and functionality for the end users and all stakeholders.
We are thrilled with the result and proud to have contributed to the development of a modern, innovative and technologically advanced facility for agricultural science, research and development essential to northern Australia.
