Australian Catholic University Building 200 Refurbishment

High quality internal refurbishment of heritage building on campus breathing life back into the mixed use space

The refurbishment of the ACU Building 200 has been designed to meet the needs of its users, while also respecting the building’s character and heritage. Inspired by the Mercy Building, the design aims to promote accessibility and equality, and ensure that the user experience reflects the wider campus. The use of bespoke timber craftsmanship and artworks creates a warm and welcoming environment, while materials have been carefully selected to complement the existing building fabric. To enhance the boardroom fitout, solid silky oak timber joinery has been used. User needs are well-served by the provision of comfortable break-out spaces, waiting areas, accessible meeting rooms, quiet rooms and social areas, with individual offices featuring glazed frontages to capture light and views.

Buildcorp was engaged on this project to provide more appropriate office accommodation for staff from the Office of Planning and Strategic Management, Finance, Vice Chancellery and Executive teams.

The scope of works included:

  • Demolition of internal structural walls,
  • Installation of new structural steel to accommodate new office configuration,
  • Complete refurbishment of a mix of offices, open plan areas, meeting spaces, kitchens and breakout spaces,
  • Services upgrades including integration of new BMS system.
