New Student Hub
Refurbishment and alteration to existing redundant facilities to create a new dynamic, flexible and adaptive community place to socialise, refresh, engage and co-work at the centre of the South Street Campus where students meet, eat, socialise, study informally and gain access to important support services.
Extensive works were undertake across a number of existing buildings to link and create a new Student Hub consisting of food and beverage tenancies, commercial areas, student study and support areas along with external associated areas. Works also included a bookshop and separate refurbishment and fitout of the existing tavern including a new commercial kitchen.
The Fitout was of a very high quality and allows for future adaptation as the universities needs change. The internal spaces have been linked through extensive hard and soft scaped outdoor areas to create a winter and summer gardens.
All works were carried out in a fully operational environment requiring detailed management planning to facilitate the coordination of consultation activities, public vehicular movements and student pedestrian traffic.
