Facts

  • The building received a $6 million refurbishment between January 2001 and June 2002, which involved removing asbestos, and the complete renovation of the interior.
  • Being a laboratory complex, services are mainly routed through a central riser duct which services every floor.
  • This building is regarded as a notable exponent of the Brutalist style of architectue by the Royal Australian Institute of Architects.
  • Elements that contribute to the external expression of the structure of the building include the solid plinth, exposed columns and beams, projecting floor slabs and the seemingly 'floating' enclosed section of building in the middle of the exposed column and beam grid.
