BAOCC Ministerial

Bob Atkinson Operational Capabilities Centre

The new Bob Atkinson Operational Capabilities Centre (BAOCC) in Wacol, is officially opened by Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, Minister for Police and Minister for Corrective Services, the Honourable Mark Ryan MP, and Commissioner Katarina Carroll.

The facility will have some of the best training facilities in the world to enhance safety across the state for Queensland’s frontline and tactical police officers. The Premier said the $52.8 million facility incorporated the latest designs and materials from training centres across the globe to deliver realistic, secure training scenarios.

“As we continue to fight the spread of COVID-19, now more than ever Queenslanders expect the highest level of skills and experience from police in order to keep our communities safe,” the Premier said.

“This new centre includes cutting-edge architecture and technology and includes two indoor firearms ranges as well as a scenario village and other specialist training areas specifically designed to enhance capability in managing terrorism and other critical incidents.”

Commissioner Carroll said the large-scale project had involved multiple inter-agency partnerships to ensure the new centre would provide state-of-the-art facilities to support officers in some of the most significant aspects of their training.

Alongside FK Gardner & Sons (FKG Group) and BNE Air, Enginova were responsible for the HVAC design of the whole facility that includes:

  • Scenario villages comprising of fuel station, retail precinct, train station including carriage and residential houses.

    Utilising innovative Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) technology for design validation of shooting range.
  • Multi-functional training and operations area.
  • Fire-arms shooting ranges.

Utilising our innovative skills and experience in complex shooting ranges, we re-engineered the original design using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), in order to validate the stringent design conditions.

We are proud to have delivered another successful project, providing innovative solutions to create holistic value for our clients.
