This new facility features a vast array of teaching spaces, student study areas, amenities, offices and open workstations. The central glazed atrium space visually connects the floors with open staircases to create an open and collaborative environment with a gross floor area of 7,200sqm.
The adjacent heritage RD Watt building also underwent a restoration and refurbishment. The facade was restored to varying levels depending on the level of deterioration and judgement of heritage ageing. The interior was refurbished to provide more usable space, refresh the aesthetic while keeping heritage elements and provide disability access. A complete replacement of all services was also undertaken with additions of air-conditioning and a fire suppression system.
