With a total of 44,000 students, the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is one of the largest universities in Australia, spanning across three building clusters within Sydney’s CBD, as well as additional scattered administration and student buildings across Sydney. INTREC have completed many projects across multiple sites at UTS since 2011. Recently, UTS sought an experienced building contractor to complete an interior refurbishment of their Innovation Hub, a collaborative study area for the Faculty of Engineering and IT(FEIT) in Building 11, located on the City campus.
This project consisted of the refurbishment of a new learning area for students, that included new flooring and joinery as well as a new kitchenette and breakout space. Conducted over six weeks, our team worked closely with key consultants to complete the space within programme. Long lead times for the procurement of FF&E items accommodated the challenging short programme. The INTREC team managed potential delays by adjusting the programme to allow realistic time frames for the transportation of supplies, as well as conducting all noisy works over night to ensure minimum disruption to the daily operations of the University.
Other projects which we have undertaken for the University in 2018 include: DAB Masters Workshop Refurbishment Building 6 Level 4, the interior refurbishment and external remediation of the newly established UTS Building on Buckland Street, and Science Buildings 4 and 7 Laboratory refurbishments located on the City campus.
