The Coombs Building Refurbishment Project is a major infrastructure project designed to transform teaching and working spaces at ANU College of Asia and the Pacific.
The Project will commence in July 2018 and is expected to take between two and three years to complete. It will be conducted in stages with the South Hexagon first, followed by the Centre and North Hexagons.
The Project has been designed to maintain the heritage of the Coombs Building while ensuring critical changes are made to teaching and working spaces. These include:
A number of changes are not possible as part of the Project, including:
It is expected there will be some disruption to working spaces across the College and most staff will be required to relocate to alternative space at least once throughout the life of the Project.
Staff in the South Hexagon of the Coombs Building will be required to relocate first in June 2018. This is expected to include staff in:
Staff will be relocated to both single offices and shared working spaces and it is expected that most staff will be relocated for a period of 10 – 12 months.
Due to changes happening across the Coombs Building as part of the Project, it has not yet been determined where staff will be permanently located upon completion of the refurbishment. Staff should not assume that they will return to their original working spaces.
The Project is being managed by ANU College of Asia and the Pacific Facilities and Services Team in partnership with the contracted architect and builder and ANU Facilities and Services Division.
We will continue to update the website as the Project progresses. Stay tuned for updates including photos of the transformation as it happens
