Overview

The SIEC project is greater than a simple, adaptive re-use. It transforms an industrial building into creative opportunities for teaching, learning and innovation. As a primary design principle, the structure was retained, where possible. The design elements provide a visually enhanced learning experience for the students.

A major challenge was bringing five outdated facilities into one significant facility. The project delivers a sustainable built outcome with efficiencies in operational and recurrent costs.
