Clinical Education building

A new teaching and learning building for the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is being built between Macquarie University Hospital and 75 Talavera Road. With works commencing in April 2019 and scheduled to conclude in the first half of 2020, the four-level, 3400m2, timber-and-glass facade building will be surrounded by large, landscaped and paved areas connecting pedestrians to Wally’s Walk on the west side and to Innovation Road on the east side. Interior spaces will be feature Harvard-style lecture theatres and interactive tutorial and study spaces.

Designed by Architectus and being built by Buildcorp with structural engineering by Arup, the contemporary teaching and learning building will have abundant team-based learning areas for future medicine and health sciences students at Macquarie. This project will support the rapidly expanding requirements and popularity of courses offered by this Faculty.

Adopting the same approach taken for the Incubator building, materials for this development will be largely pre-fabricated and environmentally sustainable to complement the modern design that will feature an abundant glass exterior to allow maximum light into the narrow site. The use of pre-fabricated panels reduces overall on-site construction time and resources.

The W feature

This structural design element has been included for visual appeal and to showcase the key material used in this development - cross laminated or mass timber. See below on how it is taking shape.
