Science and Engineering Building: Enabling Works
UNSW has supported enabling works for a new Science and Engineering Building:
- Builder's site establishment (hoarding, site sheds and services)
- Demolition of buildings D7, D8 and E8 (the old Materials Science and Engineering Building)
- Significant peripheral site works in Union, International and College roads and Third Avenue
- A temporary substation, located to the west of International House.
Enabling works are being planned and managed to maintain business continuity and to minimise disruption, as much as practicable. These works are scheduled for completion by Christmas 2016.
UNSW is also planning to redevelop The Roundhouse (E6) during the Science and Engineering Building Enabling Works, with works expected to commence in mid-2016.
Demolition Works: D7, D8 and E8
These buildings are being progressively decommissioned by Facilities Management. Once they are contained within the site fence, this area will only be able to be accessed by Brookfield Multiplex (the building contractor). Remaining furniture and equipment is being taken for reuse, where possible.
Planning for the Science and Engineering Building envelope
The main envelope and its detailed operational role/s will be developed progressively with stakeholders in early 2016. If main works are approved by the UNSW Council, main building construction is due to commence in late 2016 and will be completed by early 2019.
For more information about the Science and Engineering Building project, you can attend the weekly campus interface meetings, held at 2pm each Monday at the Brookfield Multiplex site office near Alumni Park.
