10:00 AM University of New England Case Study – A Science Precinct Masterplan

Deciding when it is time to renovate and when it is time for a new build is crucial when developing campus master planning. The UNE Science Schools faced issues of aging buildings and infrastructure, duplication of non-shared spaces and a lack of collaboration, which required a new focus for one of Australia’s great teaching, training and research universities.

The Masterplan for the UNE Science Precinct enables and drives excellence in research and teaching in the areas of agriculture, the fundamental sciences, and the life and environmental sciences, by creating a precinct which optimises efficiency and collaboration. This was achieved by providing centralised research, teaching, staff and storage facilities resulting in a program for campus demolition, the adaptive reuse of existing buildings, and new laboratory infrastructure.

This session will:
  • Identify the processes adopted to determine the current issues, and need for future Teaching and Research
  • Identify the strategic decisions for planning the location of all Science disciplines, and corresponding strategy for existing/new infrastructure
  • Outline the potential of centralisation of teaching & research, pure research and storage (temperature controlled and general) facilities.
