Queensland University of Technology, Q Block, Teaching Laboratories

DM2 Architecture worked closely with staff and faculty to design and implement a replacement suite of teaching laboratories over two levels of the building in the Life Sciences disciplines. This was driven by the need to respond to developing teaching trends and current PC2 laboratory compliance.

Executing the project while keeping key facilities operational, such as the Central Sterilising Facility, was critical to the project’s success. The floor plates have been designed for maximum flexibility and service accessibility to better accommodate future changes.

All benching is modular and incorporates fully accessible services distribution via the ceiling and custom ducting. Service and support areas have been amalgamated to maximise staff access, while reducing initial and recurring costs by avoiding duplication.
