UTS Broadway Building Completed
      June 2014
 
The exciting new home of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology (FEIT) has been completed. This new building in Sydney is part of the $1 billion City Campus Masterplan that the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) is undertaking.

Waterman Sydney was engaged as Mechanical, Electrical and ESD consultants for the AU$170 Million project which comprised approximately 42,000m2 of usable floor area, car parking and plant room areas over 15 levels. The project which took 3 years to complete was conceived and managed by Melbourne based architects Denton Corker Marshall, incorporating large open areas, lecture theatres, teaching and learning spaces, engineering and computer/IT laboratories, faculty offices, a data arena, eatery and other areas.

The building is designed for a 5-Star Green Star rating. The energy saving strategy is to deliver a 25% energy saving over benchmark tertiary educational buildings with similar functional spaces. Energy modelling was undertaken by Waterman’s Melbourne office in close consultation with the design team in Sydney.

Waterman Sydney’s job manager and Sustainability Director, Scott Brown, commented “This is one of the most exciting and innovative projects that Australia has ever seen. “This is more than just another sustainable building, it is a live showcase of current and emerging engineering and sustainable technologies which will be used by engineering students and researchers alike for years to come.”
