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 - January


The structure has been completed in all areas. 


The facade is now installed up to L9 and will continue to progress over the following months.


the Fitout has continued throughout the floors with high level 1st fix services now installed up to L11, Framing works up to L8 and plasterboard linings now up to L6. Internal Aluminium Joinery and Flooring works have also now commenced on L2.
