To accommodate forecasted growth in students and staff, the existing Reid Building will undergo a refurbishment to accommodate an adaptive re-use.

The $1 million Lump Sum project prepared the site for the impending state of the art teaching and research facility supported by modern technologies, administration and common spaces to align with industry benchmark standards.

The decanting and enabling works have been a necessary part of the project to fully vacate the Reid Building to accommodate the Main Works in due course.
