Pt Augusta Sterile Insect Production Facility


Phillips/Pikington Architects completed the Sterile Insect Production Facility in Port Augusta, a facility which is the first of its kind in Australia.  This national facility breeds sterile male Q-Flys for the whole of Australia which when released at a fruit fly outbreak site, eradicate the colony. It is a key component of the continuing fight for bio-security.  The building form and landscape celebrate their arid location and suggest an alternative to the shed construction of this semi - industrial precinct.
