Construction firm Multiplex has completed construction on an innovative learning space known as “The Kiln”, a milestone in the construction of the $225m new Monash Learning and Teaching Building at Monash University’s Clayton campus in Victoria.
Designed by architects John Wardle Architects, the new learning and teaching building spans across four levels and offers a total of 29,227 sq m of formal and informal learning space and staff workspace.
The new facility seeks to facilitate learning across all disciplines and will also be home to the faculty of education and the office of learning and teaching.
“The Kiln” marks the shift from traditional learning spaces to a more contemporary mode. It is a signature feature of the learning and teaching building’s design.
Multiplex regional managing director of Victoria region Graham Cottam said: “This innovative learning space is a testament to the progressive vision Monash University maintains for its students, and we are honoured to play a vital role in its delivery.”
The Learning and Teaching Building development features a four-level basement parking space for 830 cars, a bus terminal with 16 designated bus bays, and a 27,000 sq m landscaped outdoor area.
The learning and teaching building project in scheduled to be completed by February 2018.
