Coastal Marine Ecosystems Research Centre (CMERC) is located at CQUniversity’s Marina Campus which neighbours key local industry organisations and the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area (GBRWHA). The new location supports the CMERC team being located at a key location within the Gladstone Marina for the continuous development of the provision of independent research and advice, related to the mitigation and reduction of environmental impacts while growing the blue economy.
Relocating to the new location will open space needed to move Aged Care from CQUniversity City Campus and consolidate with Gladstone Marina Campus. Aged Care is the third largest programme delivered at the current Gladstone City Campus.
The project works will be completed in two separable portions. Portion 1 objectives are to design and refurbish the existing spaces to facilitate the research for the CMERC. Portion 2 is for the design and refurbishment of the existing spaces in building 604 to facilitate Aged Care teaching.
