Project Details

$13m refurbishment project delivers new health-related teaching, research and laboratory spaces

Working alongside construction specialist Hansen Yuncken, Benmax recently completed a refurbishment of the HVAC mechanical systems at the University of Newcastle’s (UoN) ICT Building located at their Callaghan Campus, NSW, as part of a $13 million repurposing project.

The fast-tracked project involved a full refurbishment of the existing Level 3 ICT Building to accommodate the university’s expanding School of Health Sciences. The repurposed space delivered a range of health-related teaching, research and laboratory spaces including imaging suites, CT-scanner, medical linear accelerator, and x-ray areas; nuclear medicine laboratory; physiotherapy teaching spaces and expansive dietetics laboratory, in addition to staff workspaces, meeting rooms, collaboration zones and amenities.

Delivered within the challenging COVID period, the Benmax team proactively worked with project partners to manage equipment procurement and delivery challenges experienced during the tight construction program successfully completing client witness testing and achieving practical completion in early 2022.

Since completing this project, the Benmax team have gone on to complete numerous upgrade and refurbishment projects in facilities across the UoN site including the UoN Great Hall, UoN University House, UoN HBDEP CB Building and UoN NIER C Building.

Working with Hansen Yuncken, Benmax delivered the mechanical services for the $13m repurposing of the UoN ICT Building to deliver a range of health-related teaching, research and laboratory spaces.
