Activating Great Student and Learning Experiences and Unlocking Value of Campus infrastructure


These are just  some of the  projects that are set to transform the educational and community landscape in the next couple of months.

-          University of Queensland is investing $ 500 million in developing a new student hub

-          University of Sydney is planning to spend more than $ 2.5 billion in transforming its historical campus

-          The Victorian government is transforming Melbourne’s West into a $ 30 billion super city and $ 10 million in the Footscray Education District

Universities are continuing to spend heavily in campus design and development in a bid to sharpen their competitive edge in attracting students, teaching staff and research funding. The 4th Annual Campus Development Conference 2017 returns with a brand new agenda that will highlight both greenfield and brownfield projects that are redefining the modern campus.
