Reaching for the skies at the QUT Kelvin Grove campus as the $56m iconic Education Precinct Building sets the foundations for the future

With the structure now boasting stunning 360 degree views of the CBD skyline and overlooking the beautiful Victoria Park Golf Club, the project milestone was marked with a "Topping Out" ceremony on Friday 9th March. Fortunately, after a bout of untimely wet weather, the clouds parted and the team were blessed with a delightful sunny afternoon as the rooftop celebrations began.

The QUT project team were joined by representatives from the design and construction teams as well as many QUT delegates. The team were honoured to welcome Professor Margaret Sheil, The Vice Chancellor of QUT, not only to take in the magnificent views but also show her support of this impressive landmark project.

The event celebrated the safe completion of the building to date and recognised the significant amount of work undertaken to construct the building to this point. Already we’re seeing the shapes, forms and features of the finished building rapidly appearing, as well as working spaces develop. Project Manager Gerard Harris and Qld State Manager Greg Baumann addressed the crowd, recapping on the importance of this state-of-the-art development, highlighting the achievements to date and touching on the exciting progress still to come.

With a distant city silhouette and gentle breeze, a meet and greet concluded with the humble ‘tradie barbie’ cooked by the undercover site team chefs. 

For Hansen Yuncken, it is an honour to be associated with QUT and what is sure to be one of Queensland’s most prestigious educational developments.
