The Queensland Bioscience Precinct (QBP) is a collaborative research facility dedicated to human, animal and plant biotechnological research.

With a footprint of 35,000 square meters, the QPB comprises four large buildings, multiple research laboratories as well as conference venues and plant-growth facilities.

The QBP's 34.66 kWp solar photovoltaic system was designed to follow the special architectural lines of the John Hay building.

The dark-coloured frame of each module helps it to seamlessly blend with the existing metal roof.

The system is comprised of 106 modules facing east that are configured into 2 arrays.
