Architectus has completed its design of the relocated University of Queensland School of Veterinary Science complex, creating a state of the art multi-purpose facility.
February 3rd, 2011
Relocating from the St Lucia campus to the Gatton campus, UQ’s School of Veterinary Sciences was in dire need of an upgrade of its facilities.
The existing building could not accommodate research and teaching related to large animals.
The new Gatton campus facilities are housed in both new and existing buildings, creating a clearly defined Veterinary ‘hub’.
The existing laboratories and lecture halls were upgraded, and a new Veterinary Medical Centre, Veterinary Teaching Laboratories, Clinical Studies Centre and Veterinary Science Building were constructed.
New facilities include an equine hospital and a companion hospital.
New buildings have been incorporated with old in such a way as to allow for courtyard spaces, promoting human flow and interaction.
With world-class facilities now available for students, UQ is solidifying its status as a leading institution for Veterinary Science, with the view to gaining accreditation with the American Veterinary Medical Association.
