The Privigen Project is a major addition to the existing Process Building at CSL's site in Broadmeadows, north west of Melbourne. The concept is to repeat the function of CSL's facility in Bern, Switzerland.
A ground floor plant room supports a process level that also accommodates administration, packaging and stores. The top level includes the upper process areas, quality laboratory and air handling plant.
Given how the building was used, several unique non compliances required creative fire engineering solutions to resolve.This included developing egress strategies that were in synergy with security measures in the building in addition to designing smoke exhaust and sprinkler system strategies that were part of the buildings design rather than being prescribed to a building design.
