An organic, dynamic campus community will be encouraged to grow at the central canopy at the heart of the campus. The canopy’s open learning environments, auditoria, conference facilities, retail stores, gym, cafes, bars and restaurants will support all kinds of connections – from sharing ideas and research thinking to a few drinks or meal at the end of a day.
Science communities often need to be highly secure environments, so our scheme includes mechanisms such as controlled entry into the gated community, controlled entry into the buildings and on-floor card entry into all the labs and research areas.
Smaller organisations and start-ups will benefit from the flexibility we’ve enshrined in the design – allowing access to shared core facilities like research platforms and instrumentation that are normally beyond their means.
Providing this equipment as ‘fee for service’ acts as an additional revenue generator for our client while expanding access for the researchers of the future.
