Abstract

The paper describes the QC3 quarantine facility and supporting infrastructure which were purpose built for weed biological control at the Ecosciences Precinct. The quarantine is one of two new weed quarantine facilities in Australia and will service northern Australia. An account of the sharing philosophy between CSIRO and the Queensland Government and the necessity of working very closely with architects, project managers, builders and quarantine personnel is also given. This philosophy contributed to certification of the facility without any undue delays.
