CSU WAGGA WAGGA
Building 29 forms one of a series of new buildings for Charles Sturt University's Wagga Wagga campus.
Research House is a new academic office building housing two research groups: Institue for Land, Water and Society; and Research Institute for Professional Practice, Learning and Education.
The new building provides office spaces for 54 academic staff; a range of formal and informal meeting and breakout spaces gives best opportunity for interaction between academics, research students and staff; and supporting print and IT spaces and amenities.
Research House has been designed over split levels to give best opportunity for access on the sloping site. Together with the parallal existing Building 28, the new building completed the latest in a sequence of landscape courtyards.
Office and open plan spaces are given views out to this landscape and beyond out over the city of Wagga Wagga, while openings to the west are limited to reduce summer heat gain.
Quattro has provided full design, documentation, approvals, consultant coordination and contract administration services to meet a rapid delivery program.
