Nov 2014 – April 2015
The Deakin University Burwood Campus – Building W houses staff who administer and teach students enrolled in the School of Nursing and Midwifery. The project involved the demolition and refit-out of the ground floor plus a Home Lab and store room on the first floor.
The fit-out was purpose built for staff to ensure that they had the facilities required to manage and teach the School of Nursing and Midwifery efficiently and effectively.
The new construction included new offices, meeting rooms, administration areas, staff amenities room and a refurbishment of the existing male and female toilets. The building has a variety of mobile and fixed furniture installed including the latest model workstations, Italian designed and built furniture and furniture made locally.
The building was occupied by Deakin University staff however, they were temporarily relocated whilst construction took place.
Though the project was not staged, it was handed over in two sections so staff and students of Deakin University were not restricted in their use of amenities. The first section was the refurbishment of the existing male, female and accessible toilets and the second section being the balance of the project.
The project was conducted in accordance with the Victorian State Code Compliance Guidelines.
