Steele Building, Level 2 Teaching Labs  

University of Queensland, St Lucia

Just completed construction and recently handed over to the client user group, the Steele Building Level 2 refurbishment involved working within an existing building and structure to create a range of flexible learning environments for Geology and Earth Sciences students.

The new mezzanine plant space was relocated from the centre of the room (which adversely dived the space) to its new position over a fire isolated exit. The plant room has dramatically improved access for P&F maintenance as it utilises the space in the most efficient way.

Acoustics were considered heavily as it was important to prevent noise transfer from the new mechanical plant services and between the flexible teaching spaces when the rooms are divided with the sliding glazed doors.

“Thanks again to the Architects for their efforts to deliver this time critical project.  They pulled out all the stops to ensure that information flowed as it need to, to ensure delivery.  From what I hear the space is well appointed and people are happy.  Yes we will need to meet again once you have spent some time in the space and there maybe some refinements to be made (AV as well), but in substance I think its an excellent outcome.”
