The building has been designed with significant sustainable features and has achieved a 5-star Green Star Education rating with the Green Building Council of Australia.
 
A flagship development for Swinburne University, the Advanced Technology Centre comprises two 12-level towers and two four level buildings clad with white precast panels.
 
The $76 million fixed price lump sum contract was awarded to Kane Constructions following a competitive tender.
 
The Project reached Practical Completion in January 2011. Watch the video here.
