Kane Constructions has been appointed under a Design & Construct contract to deliver the new incubation space for manufacturing businesses at Deakin University.

The project aims to establish an expanded and upscaled innovation hub and accelerator to enable the development of deployable and adaptive manufacturing innovation.

The project will contribute to the University campus development plan by furthering the establishment of the ManuFutures Precinct. While the new ManuFutures 2 building is not anticipated to be a physical continuation of the existing ManuFutures 1 building, it shall read as one precinct, including covered and landscaped interconnections between buildings.

The new ceremonial entrance for both buildings will be located in the central zone between ManuFutures 1 and 2, relocating the principal entry for ManuFutures 1 to the western end of that building.

The project is expected to reach Practical Completion in mid-2022.
