SMART Infrastructure Facility

The SMART Infrastructure Facility project team have successfully handed over our fifth project for The University of Wollongong. The $35.2 M Construction Management project commenced in April 2009 and was constructed on the main campus of the University concurrently with the recently completed Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute. The gross floor area is approximately 12,000m² which consists of a four storey concrete structure including a detailed façade system, external brickwork, structural steel components and three link bridges to connect to neighbouring buildings. Internally, the ground floor will resemble a large open area for manufacturing, research and teaching – features include’ overhead gantry facilities and a ‘Strong Floor. The upper levels include specialised research facilities, teaching laboratories, collective research spaces, lecture theatres and teaching spaces to assist with research in transport modelling, supply chains and monitoring and analysis of infrastructure. The SMART Infrastructure Facility has been designed to meet a 4 star green star rating and includes detailed services, solar panels, low VOC content through internal finishes, day-light monitoring, skylights and open-able windows.
