The Challenge

Sullivan Nicolaides is an international healthcare company that delivers medical diagnostics. Hutchinson Builders was appointed to redesign and construct its ageing Taringa facility in Brisbane, and engaged VAE as the mechanical services provider to coordinate all building services for the PC3 Laboratory. VAE's challenge was to:

Value Added

The project is currently in the 12-month warranty period. VAE integrated the BIM with all systems to enable remote monitoring. VAE monitors internal conditions and the plant using VAE Bureau, which observes trends and pre-emptively investigates any anomalies. This increases the efficiency and effectiveness of maintenance — preventing issues before they occur and ensures quick resolution should there be any failures.
