CANBERRA’S Hindmarsh has been appointed to deliver the new College Of Computer Sciences and the Mathematical Sciences Institute at the Australian National University, continuing a partnership with the university that has spanned over 15 years and resulted in the delivery of over $640 million in cutting-edge educational projects.

The $25 million building will include accommodation and support spaces for both the College of Engineering and Computer Sciences and Mathematical Sciences Institute as well as shared collaborative and teaching spaces.

The facility is being designed by dwp|suters in association with Clarke Keller Architects and will span approximately 6,340sqm in total. Hindmarsh anticipates construction will commence in December this year with completion scheduled in early 2017.

Hindmarsh ACT State Manager Construction, David Colbertaldo, said the project builds on the long-standing partnership between Hindmarsh and the ANU.

“Over the years Hindmarsh has partnered with the ANU on projects of different size and scope, ranging from $1 million to $240 million in value, and we’re proud of the contribution we’ve made on campus. This new facility will further reinforce the University’s position as a global leader and Australia’s premier teaching and research institution,” David said.

In a separate new appointment, Hindmarsh has also been appointed to deliver a comprehensive $3 million refurbishment of the ANU’s Peter Baume Buildings on University Avenue.

The College of Sciences Precinct incorporates the Teaching, Chemistry, Biosciences, Wes Whitten, Hancock West and Central Plant Buildings, as well as The Fenner School of Environment & Society.
