State Equestrian Centre, Caboolture QLD


Fire Engineering


The State Equestrian Centre was built in Caboolture and consisted of a main arena building, stables and support facilities.

There were a number of Building Code of Australia non-compliance issues which resulted as part of the design. These included –

  • Separation of different classes of use within the same building;
  • Rationalisation of the sprinkler system;
  • Vehicular access surrounding the building for the fire brigade appliance; and
  • Rationalisation of the smoke exhaust and fire detection system within the building.
  • A fire engineered performance based solution was provided to resolve the non-compliance issues.
