The Biological Sciences Building (Stage 1) is a contemporary research and teaching facility for the Faculty of Science at the University of New South Wales. The nine-level building represents the third stage of the regeneration and expansion of the university’s Biomedical Precinct and addresses the long-term accommodation needs of the Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences and Biotechnology and Biomolecular Science schools. The building includes a new atrium; contemporary research, teaching and learning spaces; wet and dry laboratories and extensive upgrading of the surrounding landscape. Works were completed on a fully operational campus and strict measures were put in place to ensure minimum disruption of staff, students, visitors and the ongoing activities of the busy university. In-ground works required the relocation of major high-risk services. The university substation required demolition. The new substations were constructed within the adjacent buildings while these buildings remained live and occupied during the works. The building required many areas to have physical containment certification (PC2). This included minimisation of gaps, access to clean surfaces and pressure boundaries. Ceiling spaces and penetrations required special attention. Multiplex engaged specialist relocation consultants to assist in the critical relocation and decanting strategy. Through an extensive ECI and ongoing design development, Multiplex delivered a project that maximised the footprint and addressed the long-term accommodation needs of the Biomedical Precinct. The Biological Sciences Project was successfully delivered on program, below budget and handed over defect free.
