The Solution / Outcome

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.
