The Queensland Emergency Operations Centre at Kedron Park incorporates world’s best practice technology for the management of emergency communications and disaster coordination to the state.

Architectus have created a complex that is simple, efficient and calming, ensuring the most ideal conditions for dealing with the needs and situations handled by centre staff on a daily basis.

The Queensland Emergency Operations Centre is integrated with existing buildings on the site and is designed to create a ‘campus’ feel with landscaped courtyards situated between the complex’s operational buildings.

The courtyards feature generous timber decks that provide important recreational or ‘retreat’ spaces for staff away from the centre’s operational spaces. The choice of recycled hardwood for the timber screens of the decks is a strategy for sustainability that also provides for a calm and enclosing feel to these important break out spaces.

Architectus’ design for the Queensland Emergency Operations Centre makes more than effective provision for a highly technical and exacting brief while also providing humanised spaces appropriate to the look and feel of a subtropical environment of South East Queensland.
