Building W at Deakin University’s Burwood Campus houses staff whom administer and teach students enrolled in the School of Nursing and Midwifery.
The project involved the demolition and refit-out of the ground floor and a Home Lab and store room on the first floor. The fit-out was purpose-built for staff to ensure that the facilities to manage and teach Nursing and Midwifery met their requirements effectively.
Construction included new offices, meeting rooms, administration areas, a staff amenities room, and the refurbishment of the existing male and female toilets. The building had a variety of mobile and fixed furniture installed including latest model workstations, Italian designed and built furniture, and locally built furniture.
Whilst construction took place, the building was occupied by Deakin University staff however they were temporarily relocated. Though the project was not staged, it was handed over in two sections to ensure staff and students of were not restricted with their use of the building. The project was conducted in accordance with the Victorian State Code Compliance Guidelines.
