Construction is underway at Monash University’s Clayton Campus on a new $206 million Learning and Teaching Building designed by John Wardle Architects (JWA).
The 30,000sqm facility is being delivered by construction company Multiplex (formerly Brookfield Multiplex) and will be a key component of the campus’ reinvigorated southern precinct—the largest infrastructure development program in its history.
It will feature 65 formal and informal learning spaces across a four-storey building which, according to Multiplex Managing Director Graham Cottam, will form a cornerstone in “Monash’s ambition for the next half century”.
Brick-clad learning spaces at the centre of the building.
“Monash University is already ranked within the top one per cent of global Universities and fittingly the brief by architect John Wardle is both challenging and visionary,” says Cottam.
“We are delighted to partner with Monash University to be part of a revolutionary vision for higher education where innovative learning spaces are realised through a series of light-filled atria, indoor and outdoor landscapes.”
Informal study spaces within the Teaching and Learning Building
$145M million student accommodation precinct comprising of more than 1,000 studio apartments as well as retail and informal learning spaces.
One of the buildings, Logan Hall by McBride Charles Ryan, is a finalist in the 2016 Sustainability Awards.
Construction on the new Learning and Teaching Building has already begun and is scheduled for completion in February 2018.
