The Griffith University Engineering Enabling project was made up of three different locations across the Griffith University Nathan Campus, with the main focus surrounding the N44 Engineering Building.

Level 0 of the N44 was turned from a dark, prehistoric computer lab, to a bright, modern engineering lab where students could undertake their studies.  Alongside the modern fixtures, arete also provided some high end joinery ‘pods’ where the students can collaborate and work alongside the Engineering faculty.

arete worked closely with Griffith University and Hassell Architects to ensure that the works were future proof to allow the three individual student spaces to be able to withstand the constant traffic of University students and faculty members within the spaces.  An example of this was changing the electrical layout for the work station pods to be run through an umbilical as opposed to ground mounted. This was a cost effective motion for arete as the builders and the client.

The project was completed on time and within budget.
