Project Details

Currently on site at the Research School of Physics and Engineering (RSPhys) at the Australian National University, Canberra, Benmax is partnering with Hindmarsh Construction on the delivery of HVAC mechanical services for the new purpose-built facility. The RSPhys is the leading institution in Australia for physics research and its applications, and the ultra-modern facility will replace the ageing building infrastructure currently housing the school.

To be completed in staged works, the four storey building combines administrative and teaching spaces, large 250 person auditorium, boardroom and seminar areas, with critical laboratory spaces including stable labs, specialist equipment rooms, cleanrooms (ISO 5, ISO 6 and ISO 7 standard), and microscope rooms. Seismic restraint and vibration protection technology features throughout the construction to maintain the integrity of the building and the important work of its occupants.

The experience of the Benmax team in completing numerous laboratory projects, in both Australia and New Zealand, has been invaluable in the construction of the ANUs latest technical laboratory facility.

The project is due for completion in late 2021.
