RCC partnered with the University and FJMT under a Managing Contractor agreement we could progress the concept design without delaying the construction of the project. This process allowed RCC to actively contribute to the design and value management in real time.
The works involved the demolition of the existing building and the construction of a new teaching building, including a new UTS Library, Faculty of Engineering, learning commons and research labs. The building presents as an undulating semitransparent building wrapping the base of the tower, this is achieved with curved glass façade.
Since starting on site, $63m (25%) additional scope has been added to the scope of works, including super lab fitout, feature stairs and fitout of the tower.
