Melbourne Consequential Works
Project Overview A number of consequential works were undertaken at 115 Victoria Parade in the locations that were vacated by moves into the Daniel Mannix Building. The majority of these works were to re-purpose and update the spaces. This project included the development of teaching and office facilities to support Speech Pathology, construction of a Moot Court and dedicated research facilities (SPRT), as well as an upgrade of the air conditioning system.
Project Update Works completed as follows:
- SPRT – Completed 31st January 2013
- Moot Court – Completed 18th February 2013 (see image below)
- Speech Pathology – Completed April 2013
Project Overview To meet the demands of growing student numbers on the Melbourne Campus, the existing Melbourne Library was refurbished and extended over three floors. This extension provides additional room for learning spaces and the stacking/storage of books. The refurbishments make a significant difference to the functioning of the campus and provide much needed additional facilities for students.
Project Update Construction is complete and the building is occupied (see image below). Outstanding works and rectification of defects are in progress.
