Arts & Education Building - Griffith University - Gold Coast

This 2,400m2 classroom and administration facility forms part of the University’s multimedia hub. The substantial split-level 2/3 storey building is a reinforced concrete and structural steel structure. Designed by Brand + Slater Architects, the project took just 46 weeks to design and build.

The building was designed according to environmentally sustainable principles. The roof captures rainwater into a series of tanks for reuse onto the surrounding landscaped areas. Provision was also made for grey-water reuse.
