The John Curtin School of Medical Research

The design of the buildings is influenced by the DNA double helix, which increases the "organic" look of the building. The school is a special purpose building combining a public interface with state of the art secure research and laboratory facilities. To this end a significant amount of design effort has been applied to physical interrelationships and requirements for such a purpose.

The project involves three stages as part of a master planned outcome to the value of $150M. The stages needed to be progressively completed and occupied to allow the Research School to maintain its on-going research activities.

The $45M Stage 2 was completed March 2009, with $60M Stage 3 commencing in mid 2009 for completion in March 2012.
