Construction Impacts

Excuse the interruption...

We are constantly looking to improve campus facilities and grounds through routine maintenance, planned refurbishment, and new capital developments.

Where disruptions are expected, traffic and/or pedestrian management will be in place, spaces will be cordoned off and notice will be provided to users. Sometimes classes or group sessions may be relocated or postponed. Where classes or lectures are impacted, students and staff will be advised by the University's Timetabling team.

For any enquiries regarding the projects, please contact

Description of works

Start Period

End Period

Building 3 Level DConstruction Works

Access scaffolding will be erected (including external stairs and a materials hoist) across two (2) accessible car parks in Building 27. This will reduce worker traffic through Building 3 during the construction period.

During the project, the main switchboard in Building 3 will also be replaced. This will require a complete power shutdown to the Building for three (3) to four (4) days. Temporary power will be provided, however, this will only supply  essential services in the Building. These works will be scheduled over a weekend to minimise the impact to University operations.
