As part of the pre-New Academic Street construction works, two under-utilised rooms in Building 10 have been refitted to provide improved teaching labs for the School of Engineering.

Project: Refurbished teaching labs in Building 10, level 7

Architect: John Wardle Architects

Commenced: 5 January 2015

Completed: 9 March 2015

The state-of-the-art undergraduate labs are spacious, light-filled, and feature multi-purpose storage facilities. They replace previously vacant rooms on level 7 and are a significant upgrade on the former spaces.

Electrical engineering student Alastair McDonald said,

“I think having new desktop computers, plenty of space and good chairs helped make the lab feel like a modern facility.”

Chris Arthur, Senior Projects Officer, School of Engineering, said the new areas are more versatile and student friendly.

“All the equipment is new, out of the box, high-end instrumentation for the lab-based learning programs. They have an open, brighter feel with contemporary finishes and are better suited to RMIT’s collaborative-based learning model.”
