Building Programme

The Faculty of Engineering is constructing a brand-new, purpose-built engineering building for students and staff which is due to open late 2019.

What is the building project?

Due to open in late 2019, building 405 will provide students with tailor-made spaces to support learning, accommodate larger student cohorts, and encourage multi-disciplinary collaboration.

Our new multi-disciplinary learning spaces (MDLS) provide the Faculty of Engineering with a unique opportunity to utilise a space that is configurable to a variety of different disciplines. The furniture and equipment is all easily movable, so teaching staff are able to customise the labs to best suit student needs.

Alongside the new teaching spaces, there'll be some great spaces for students to study and relax. Larger areas with comfortable furniture for relaxing and socialising will be complemented by smaller breakout spaces, where you can study solo or with a group.

Monthly update - May


The structure has been completed in all areas. 


In the past few months the project has been busy closing in the façade to the main building and also the new atrium.


The fitout is currently full steam ahead with fitout works
now being carried out on all levels.
