The Department of Housing and Public Works engaged the FKG Group to design and construct a new Counter Terrorism and Community Safety Centre (CTCSC) Training Facility complete with indoor firing ranges and a scenario village. The scope was inclusive of civil works, concrete tilt panels, structural steel, metal cladding, commercial fit out, vehicle parking, and associated external works.

Officially named as the Bob Atkinson Operational Capabilities Centre (BAOCC), the 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.

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this Project. On behalf of the Client, Queensland Police Service, this is a historic moment for this organisation and the outcome reached will forever change the way police and our partner agencies will train Operational Skills and Tactics in Queensland now, and well into the future.  You have all assisted in making Queensland a safer place for our community.
