EAG installed stick and unitised curtain walling, glazed doors, rainscreen cladding and louvres as well as a fully glazed atrium roof to the 12,700m2 building, which will allows natural light to filter through into the rooms below. The project, was led by contractor Osborne and design architect Grimshaw, involved a complete remodeling of the existing building situated at 24 Kingsway in the West End – formerly the Public Trust Office – which was built around 1912. The building is an eight-storey, U-shaped structure. The plans incorporated an atrium, roof pavilion and a revamped central courtyard. The building provides three new lecture theatres, 18 classrooms, research facilities and academic offices on the upper floors and has provide capacity for a further 2,500 students. The New Academic Building will ease overcrowding in the centre of the campus and enable departments with similar academic interests to come together.
