Plant Growth Facility

The Plant Growth Facility (PGF) project will provide world-leading research facility that underpins excellence and innovation in plant science and sustainable ecosystems for global impact.

Work begins in December 2021, with the facility expected to be occupied in July 2023. The Plant Growth Facility will be located within the west precinct of the St Lucia Campus, on the corner of Glasshouse and Services Road, directly opposite the existing Central Glasshouse Services (CGS).

The facility will contain an array of highly technical controlled environment rooms, capable of replicating a variety of environmental conditions to simulate natural conditions in a controlled and measurable manner. The building roof deck will house a glasshouse and the provision for a future glasshouse.

The Plant Grow Facility will position UQ as the principal plant science research centre in Queensland.

The site will require the demolition of existing buildings 85A (storage facility), 87 (demountable), 88 (Glasshouse 1), 89D (Growth Room) and outdoor space allocated to Property and Facilities.

Please see the site plan and proposed works through each stage of the project below.
