Through a process of careful collaboration and the trusting relationship between Hassell, the University of NSW, and the end-users, the $104 million project is complete, with the building given a major refurbishment.
The EEB now welcomes the next generation of engineers to a healthier, more sustainable building. This includes an additional 10% floor area efficiency, reduced environmental footprint, enhanced natural daylight, renewable energy generation, and an extended 40-year building life.
Through a series of careful interventions, the building has a new dialogue with the surrounding campus. Visibility into student spaces, teaching and research spaces gives the building identity; one which will be carried forward for the next generation of engineers.
