KPD were invited at the early design stages of this project and assisted with developing compliant solutions for the laboratory fitout for the extensive research and teaching spaces. This included incorporating the AV equipment characteristic of the “SuperLab” teaching spaces and bespoke systems to satisfy the specific client brief. The project was built in record time, demanding a high level of finish under an accelerated construction program.
This new 21,000m² building houses UNSW’s biological and environmental sciences. The space is designed to be flexible, supporting current research and teaching needs as well as providing infrastructure to support future technological advances.
The building has a capacity for more than 450 staff and PhD students and 200 undergraduate biomedical students.
Key features of the building include:
- Biomedical undergraduate teaching facilities
- Flexible research laboratory spaces
- Specialised research equipment
- Precinct loading dock, stores and utilities
- Staff workspace.
