The University of Queensland, Hawken Engineering Building, Clean Energy & Water Research Laboratory

The design of this project was a thoroughly collaborative process across the DM2 Architecture, the final users and various stake holders at the University. This has resulted in a research laboratory which supports the current research, permits operation and maintenance activities of the university now whilst remaining flexible for adaptation in the future.

The laboratory has been created around a central core accommodating the majority of the built in research laboratory infrastructure. This layout provides efficient work flows and maintains enough flexibility to house two research groups sharing the main lab facilities.

Further to this it allowed for the creation of a clean finish while maintaining ease of access to key services for ongoing maintenance and future flexibility.
