The University of Newcastle began construction in February of 2020 on a AUD$25 million facility for the School of Creative Industries in Newcastle, NSW, Australia. Designed by EJE Architecture, the four-story building will provide a maker space, research labs, studios, a co-working environment, seminar and conference rooms, flexible and informal learning spaces, and a café. Located in the AUD$500 millon Honeysuckle City Campus Development, the project will also house the region's Integrated Innovation Network Hub. Featuring extensive smart glazing and a cross-laminated timber (CLT) frame, the project is expected to attain 5 Green Star certification from the Green Building Council of Australia. Hansen Yuncken is the general contractor for the facility, which is slated for completion in mid-2021.
