The University of Canberra engaged Rork Projects to undertake a fit-out for their new Robotics and Engineering Facility. The industrial feel of this fit-out is innovative in its design.
Undergraduate students will be able to occupy the space with engineering equipment specialised to the Robotics course, areas for teaching and research in environmental science, conservation biology, forensic and analytical science and biomedical sciences together with data science, artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, cloud computing and cybersecurity.
The new facility will provide a combination of research and teaching spaces for the Faculty of Science and Technology. Presented with a cold shell, the project consisted of the demolition of the existing building façade, the installation of structural steel to walls, internal glazed doors and plasterboard walls, feature ceilings with acoustic panels and a concealed grid system ceiling, the construction of an external terrace for outdoor learning which included the installation of a 12.4 ft long sliding door out to the terrace. Other features encompassed, precast concrete, mechanical, electrical, AV, hydraulic, data and fire services.
As an Indigenous business, we proudly acknowledge that this project was completed on the lands of the Ngunnuwal people.
