UTS Sydney – Building 10 FASS & FoH Upgrade Project

  • Sector
    Education
  • Client
    University of Technology Sydney
  • Date Completed
    November 2015
  • Budget
    $18 million

This project was a large scale upgrade of UTS CB10 for two key faculties, the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) and the Faculty of Health – Nursing & Midwifery (FoH). In developing this successful learning environment, GWA facilitated several stakeholder workshops to develop a robust brief that capturing work and communication methods and  also how future aspirations could be met.

The new FASS & FoH occupants in CB10 are spread across seven floors with teaching labs for Science and Arts subjects; clinical labs for Nursing and Midwifery; general teaching and computing spaces; academic offices and executive offices for the FoH Dean’s Unit.

 

The Higher Degree Research students enjoy an Activity Based Environment (ABE) which maximises adaptability, flexibility and connectivity. This ABE sets a new benchmark for future projects.

A significant element of the new teaching spaces and laboratories is virtual classroom technology. UTS FASS & FoH are at the forefront of virtual teacher and nursing training, with their classes and research extending globally beyond the physical classroom.
