Forensic Services and Coroner’s Complex

The Forensic Services Complex is an exceptional facility to deal with the demand for forensic investigations in support of criminal prosecutions and community safety through two critical forensic investigation agencies: the Centre of Forensic Sciences (CFS) and the Office of the Chief Coroner (OCC).

HH Angus provided mechanical, electrical and communication compliance engineering to the project. Our exemplar design developed highly energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems that established a benchmark for low operating costs for the facility.

CFS provides forensic examinations for cases involving injury or death in unusual circumstances and in crimes against persons or property, and investigates more than 8,000 cases per year. Specialities include biology, chemistry, electronics, toxicology, document and photographic analysis, firearms and tool marks. The OCC conducts approximately 20,000 death investigations every year.
