Located at The University of New South Wales, the TETB H6 building integrates flexible laboratory modules (including cleanroom working environments), a series of collaboration, teaching and learning spaces, and administrative offices, engineering workshops and engineering research laboratories.

The Tyree Building houses 1300 m2 of SPREE research and support spaces spread over a number of laboratories on different levels – ranging from wet chemical processing, laser processing, characterisation and vacuum and plasma processing. Level 4 houses the thin film vacuum processing laboratories (cleanrooms) where the specialty (toxic, pyrophoric, flammable) gases are employed.

Supporting spaces include plant room spaces – Ultra Pure Water (UPW) generation, Gas and Dangerous Goods stores. There are over 200 laboratory users and the facility and equipment  operate 24/7. This means engineering services such as exhaust and abatement, air conditioning and humidity control are required to run 24/7. As bulk asphyxiated gases are reticulated through the building there is a need to ensure adequate ventilation and detection of hazardous conditions is provided.
