This project is an integral component of the “UTS” city campus master plan. The UTS Broadway Building is approximately 42,000m2 over 15 levels and will house the UTS Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology.
The building was designed based on a 5-Star Green Star rating. The energy saving strategy is to deliver a 30–45% energy saving over benchmark tertiary educational buildings with similar functional spaces.
The design includes for under floor air distribution systems and low energy lighting and a facade that is fully wrapped in a laser cut, low reflectance externally mounted aluminium ‘binary code’ screen, which in its perforations represents the pattern of ‘0s’ and ‘1s’ that underpin computing language reflecting the IT nature of the building.
Waterman undertook the full design, documentation and construction phase services for all engineering services including Mechanical, Electrical, Fire, Hydraulic, Vertical Transport and ESD.
