Strong Sustainability Focus

24,000m2 Floor Area

Complex Façade System

Construction of Health and Medical Research Building is targeting a Gold Rating through the International WELL Building Institute, together with a Green Building Council Five Green Star Rating. At 10 floors high, the Health and Medical Research Building will include specialised PC2 and BC2 compliant specialist laboratories, general laboratories, offices, seminar and support facilities for Flinders University students, faculty, academics and alumni.

Supporting a strong partnership with the local Aboriginal community, the building’s design elements respect and celebrate Rainbow Country through consultation with the Kaurna people, especially elder in residence Lewis Yarluburka O’Brien. The Health and Medical Research Building will also incorporate a considered Indigenous narrative and will operate as a culturally inclusive and safe space.
