Macquarie University – Australian Hearing Hub
The Australian Hearing Hub is an industry leader in providing linguistics, audiology, speech pathology, cognitive and language sciences and pathology to a university that services more than 40,000 students.
Northrop provided engineering solutions to a growing population at the university with a renewed workstation and collaborative space arrangement on Level 1, study laboratory spaces and audiology rooms on Level 3.
The key to project succession was to maintain an operational facility throughout the construction works. Having the areas broken up into sections across both Levels 1 & 3 required a strategic approach to design methodology. Utilising both knowledge of the facility and frequent project user group design coordination meetings, Northrop was able to give confidence to our client that the team had incorporated a mitigated operational downtime design.
This project is due for completion in 2018.
