The AFP Forensics and Data Centre Facility is a 13,600 sqm state-of-the-art building located in Majura, Canberra. The purpose-built facility provides highly specialised spaces and a strict level of compliance to ensure the AFP maintains its world-class standards in forensic operations, forensic science policy, research and training.
Benmax was engaged by Cockram Construction Ltd to complete the mechanical services installation and commissioning for the project. The facility incorporates complex mechanical operations including humidity control, filtration, high air change rates, air pressurisation and 100% fresh air systems, fume cupboards and local exhaust systems. Our in-house knowledge of these systems, and expertise in commissioning for the physical containment conditions, proved highly beneficial throughout the project.
Awarded the highest honour at the 2018 ACT Architecture Awards, the Canberra Medallion, the design of the facility incorporates significant environmental benefits, including energy efficiency initiatives and water conservation measures.
