West 5 (X8) car park extension 

Work will commence on 16 January 2017 to extend West 5 (X8) car park to create an additional 746 spaces, bringing the total capacity of West 5 to 1332 spaces.  The car park will be extended westward towards Culloden Road.

The extension will be constructed of grass reinforced mesh with bitumen roadways similar to the existing car park, and include pedestrian walkways, lighting, CCTV cameras and help points.

Weather permitting, construction of the car park extension will be completed in late September 2017.

Parking at the existing section of West 5 will not be affected by these works, and University permit holders may continue to access the car park via Link Road and Gymnasium Road.

Design guidelines

The Guidelines cover Strategic Planning, General Design, Space Types, Component Specs and information about the Master Plan which was completed in 2014.

The Master Plan has been strategically aligned with the Vision and Strategy of the University 'Our University - A Framing of Futures'.  It provides a reference framework which will allow flexibility to accommodate future infrastructure and space needs while enhancing the existing qualities of the University's campus.

Working collaboratively with Property for the fitout, PACE now have have a light filled space designed specifically for their needs, that they couldn't be happier with, as reported by Lindie Clark, Academic and Program Director of PACE.

Lindie says, 'With the colour palette being greens and browns, it seems that the outside is being brought inside making for a natural and calm environment.  The workstations are broken up with timber framing and the incorporation of areas for collaborative teamwork give the whole floor a great community feel. We love it!'

After what was a reluctant move from the Australian Hearing Hub, the PACE team is even happier in their new office in the EMC building, with a collaborative workspace, and a kitchen area that encourages interaction with staff from across the entire floor.

It will provide power for the next 50 years to some 50,000mof new science and medical research floor space and contribute to a reduction in the long term Campus electricity supply costs. 

Power is supplied from the Macquarie Park Zone Substation, some 2.4km east of the University adjacent to Lane Cove Road.

The building is a reinforced block and concrete construction, clad in painted cement sheeting with screened aluminum louvred doors and wall vents and is partially screened with decorative lineal aluminum fins in 5 earthy colours.

Project completed August 2016.
