Medical Projects have been completed on all of the standard medical gases reticulated in hospitals and their associated support areas. Projects have ranged in size from simple ward upgrades and extensions to complete turn key projects with contract values in millions of dollars. Specialised projects have included the full design, installation and commissioning of recovery wards and operating theatres on board two Australian Navy support ships. The installation and commissioning was completed with the ships in a dry dock.

Laboratory Gas Projects have included the usual laboratory systems, with pressures from 2 kPa through to 20,000 kPa. In addition, some more unusual gases have been reticulated. These include gases and cryogenic liquids, circulating in vacuum jacketed stainless steel tubing. These have been installed using orbital welding techniques, along with the use of specialised stainless steel connection fittings, such as Swagelok.
