The Innovation Lab at the University of Newcastle School of Creative Industries

Innovation Lab at University of Newcastle

As part of the Unversity of Newcastle’s growing interest in creative industries, a modern and collaborative space was born. This space enables students to learn in an industry-style collaborative environment, reflecting the new style of working environment.

GKT Group Budget: $70,000.00

Principal Contractor: E1 Projects Group Pty Ltd

Project Date: Q1 2017

Project Details:

The refurbishment of an existing dwelling became The interim Innovation Lab, a custom-built facility designed to support new programs at the University of Newcastle. It is used as a flexible base for students across the Creative Industries disciplines.

GKT Group Scope of Works:

GKT Group was required to complete the design and installation of electrical systems to meet the University of Newcastle’s specifications. The project included general purpose power, dedicated circuits and linear LED fittings.

A powder coated black cable tray system was installed to make the most of an open plan learning space, this allowed more freedom to incorporate retractable power outlets for the moveable desks and workstations.

Exit and evacuation lighting, as well as wireless access points, were also installed throughout the use of this system.

GKT Group has experience with a range of commercial fit outs, from restaurants to retail stores and, of course, educational labs! View more of our projects below:
