The design of the building needed to adopt a simple and consistent functional layout on each level to maximise the effectiveness of structural and vertical services infrastructure systems.
The three-level, 7,000 square metre Sciences Teaching Facility allows for the flexible delivery of a number of laboratory classes from biology, chemistry and earth and environmental sciences. The modern laboratories also allow for the possibility for students to plug-in and complete compulsory practical activities at a time that suits them.
For us all to prosper and be well, Australia, and the world, needs scientists. This exciting and innovative new science and teaching facility, on this beautiful campus, provides a venue for first-class university teaching and inspiration in the sciences for students.Professor Alison Jones, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health | University of Wollongong (NSW Australia)
