The objective of the Science and Engineering Centre redevelopment was to provide state-of-the-art teaching, research and student facilities to position QUT at the forefront of higher education within Australia and the international tertiary education market, and also to facilitate extensive collaboration with the private sector through joint research activities.

One of the unique features of the Science and Engineering Centre is ‘The Cube’, an open plan space over two levels in the main public area with a bank of fully interactive screens that showcase innovative technologies, and a Microsoft area, which allows sample use of the company’s most recent products.

Making the difference

Turner & Townsend Thinc provided a diverse and integrated skillset in delivering this project for the University. I valued the calibre and commitment of the business and the project personnel in successfully delivering the most complex project undertaken by the university. Their ability to work collaboratively across all stakeholders within the university community was a key aspect of the project success”.
