Macquarie University, The Australian Hearing Hub
The Australian Hearing Hub is a 5 Star Green Star facility at Macquarie University. Its unique, world class facilities are purpose designed to understand hearing and related speech/language disorders.
The $74 million project incorporated an anechoic (“no echo”) chamber, acoustic laboratories, relocation of two MEG machines and ancillary office space. The seven storey building covers 34,000sqm GFA including car parking for 340 cars.
Slattery was engaged from the preliminary design stages through to final handover. Our services included all stages of cost planning, preparation of a bill of quantities, tender analysis and post contract cost control services. Through this project our team had the valuable opportunity to learn about specialist acoustic systems and treatments including the construction techniques and cost drivers.
