The design of Queensland Rail’s new $190 million purpose built, state-of-the-art rollingstock facility was undertaken by MODE within the Bombardier led PPP Consortium, QTECTIC. The facility was awarded the National Smart Architecture Award for its use of 4D BIM, resulting in construction efficiencies, reduced costs and early delivery. The design of the facility is based on both operational and construction efficiencies; safe movement of trains, vehicles and staff around the site, quality and supporting the local economy. Key features of the facility include a dedicated under floor wheel lathe, cleaning and decanting facilities, raised rail and in-ground lifting capabilities for improved maintenance operations.
