UTS Insearch is a fully accredited Australian higher education provider and a controlled entity of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). Insearch provides academic pathway programs for local and overseas students as a way to access UTS and other tertiary institutions.
This was a complex multiphase refurbishment of an existing 1970’s office which is now UTS Insearch’s main premises and teaching facility in Haymarket Sydney. The initial phase of the project involved the provision of a Masterplan for the internal fitout works related to the whole campus with extensive facilities planning to rationalise the leased areas and to cater for a 5 year expansion of the Insearch program.
A key challenge for the project was the refurbishment of the building and upgrade of building services for a building which had been designed for office use. The works were staged to facilitate progressive occupation of the space coordinated with the termination of leased areas and Insearch time-tabling and to allow the Insearch teaching program to continue without interruption.
