The Sonic Healthcare Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology laboratory headquarters (Bowen Hills Queensland) is set to be the most advanced pathology facility of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

Sullivan Nicolaides Pathology (SNP) is one of the largest members of the Sonic Health group, which is an independent, Australian owned, publicly listed company, operating in the specialities of pathology and radiology. Sullivan Nicolaides sought to consolidate its outdated Brisbane metropolitan facilities that were spread across four locations, and centralise in a purpose built, state-of-the-art headquarters in Bowen Hills.

Due to medical science constantly and rapidly changing, pathology will be at the forefront. The facility has been designed to provide the foundation for future laboratory development as new technologies emerge over the next 10 to 20 years that we will need to accommodate. This facility will cut operating cost, save money in the future.

ACOR were engaged during the construction phase and assisted the successful plumbing contractor, Cook & Dowsett, with their Revit and BIM modelling contractual requirements and design peer reviews.
