The construction project for our flagship science facility was officially launched at a ground-breaking ceremony at the construction site in February 2021. 

The new building, due for completion in mid-2023, will be a fit-for-future learning and research facility located within a bio-diverse park-like environment. 

The new science facilities will comprise: 

  • Modern, well-lit, climate-controlled learning areas, office workspace and collaboration spaces designed to suit the needs of students, staff, postgraduate researchers and our industry partners 
  • State-of-the-art research laboratories and equipment 
  • Contemporary teaching spaces 
  • Adjustable meeting and conference zones 
  • Multi-use social spaces 
  • Café and heat-and-eat area 
  • Purpose-built areas for specialist research activities. 

In line with the University’s sustainable infrastructure goals, the new building will have minimal environmental impact, featuring roof- and wall-mounted solar arrays, a ground-sourced heating/cooling system and a rainwater-fed toilet flushing system.
