CSU – Residential Accommodation

Value: $34M

Location: Albury, Wagga, Bathurst, Orange

This design and construct project for CSU consisted of a total 780 beds across 4 campuses – Albury, Wagga, Bathurst and Orange. These cost effective and robust facilities provide a new and exciting step into university living. The underlying design was based around a structural system consisting of innovative modular precast concrete ‘boxes’ stacked to provide 2 storey living. Heating is achieved through a gas hydronic system with coils in the ground slab and precast boxes, whilst evaporative cooling provides fresh air to all areas. This project was successful in winning the 2009 MBA NSW Excellence in Construction Award in the Innovation Construction Technique/Equipment category.
