Contractor Multiplex has secured a contract to build a $206M learning and teaching building for Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
Designed by architect John Wardle, the multi-storey building will cover an area of 30,000sq m. The building will encompass a large underground car park and a regional transport interchange.
Construction work on the project is already underway and is expected be wrapped up by February 2018.
Multiplex regional managing director Victoria Graham Cottam said: “Monash University is already ranked within the top one percent of global universities and fittingly the brief by architect John Wardle is both challenging and visionary.
“We are delighted to partner with Monash University to be part of a revolutionary vision for higher education where innovative learning spaces are realised through a series of light-filled atria, indoor and outdoor landscapes.”
Recently, Multiplex also completed a $145m student accommodation precinct with four new residential buildings for Monash University. The buildings feature over 1,000 studio apartments, associated retail space, as well as informal learning spaces for students.
