Translational Research Institute
Wilson Architects and Donovan Hill were selected following an architectural design competition for the new Translational Research Institute. The TRI, located on the Princess Alexandra Hospital campus, aims to link tertiary education and independent medical research with health care to enable new discoveries to be refined, tested and manufactured with greater efficiency, and be available to patients sooner. It is an aim of the Institute to position Australia as a world leader in health and medical research innovation.
This facility will accommodate more than 650 researchers. They shall be drawn from the University of Queensland’s Diamantina Institute for Cancer, Immunology and Metabolic Medicine, the Mater Medical Research Institute, the Queensland University of Technology’s Institute for Health and Biomedical Innovation and the Princess Alexandra Hospital.
The Institute will also house a new pilot-scale manufacturing and testing facility for BioPharmaceuticals Australia who will develop drugs and vaccines for use in research at the facility.
Ash worked on this project as the lead Interior Designer whilst at Wilson Architects. He was involved in the project from competition phase all the way through to contract administration.
