University of South Australia Constructs Health Innovation Building

The University of South Australia is constructing the AUD$247 million Health Innovation Building in Adelaide. Located in the Biomed City development, the 310,000-gsf facility will house the Centre for Cancer Biology, the Museum of Discovery, the Innovation and Collaboration Centre, health teaching clinics, a vivarium, and an atrium. Construction began on the 14-story project in 2015 and occupancy is expected in mid-2018. The Health Innovation Building was designed by Swanbury Penglase and BVN with Hansen Yuncken as construction manager. LEED Gold sustainable design certification will be sought for the project, which features a rooftop photovoltaic array, advanced building systems, solar shading, and high-performance glazing.
