Harris HMC has been partnering with the University of Melbourne since 2011 to deliver complex projects in some of Melbourne’s busiest environments. We recently completed a refurbishment to the Faculty of Business and Economics Building across six levels to create vibrant new student spaces and conference facilities for utilisation by honours students and leasing out to external parties.

The university sought a high-quality finish to all aspects of the refurbishment and the scope of works included:

  • Staged demolition of existing office and student areas
  • Refurbishment of student spaces across five levels
  • Refurbishment of conference/integrated learning space across one level
  • Construction of bespoke metal banquette seat canopies
