PROJECT

Continuing the successful collaborations on 1 Parramatta Square and Westmead Innovation Quarter, Charter Hall and Western Sydney University have engaged Floth to undertake the base building design and by Western Sydney University to undertake the integrated fitout design of the Parramatta Engineering Innovation Hub. The base building project comprises 29,000m² of commercial space in a single tower with large 2000m² floor plates, along with complementary ground level retail and basement services and parking. The integrated fitout comprises 7,000m² of under-graduate engineering learning and innovation spaces for the Western Sydney University’s School of Computing, Engineering & Mathematics. The fitout utilises innovative flexible learning environments to both improve learning outcomes for students and improve space utilisation for the university. A key aspect of the design is for the building’s engineering to be on display in order to utilise the space as a teaching tool and enhance the students learning experiences. Floth are assisting the University and Charter Hall in exploring a range of leading-edge technologies to enable greater engagement between the students and the building.
