Carlton Connect Initiative

The University of Melbourne is developing Australia’s leading innovation precinct on the former site of the Royal Women’s Hospital, located on the corner of Swanston and Grattan streets in Carlton.

Industry, researchers, government and the community will co-locate within the new precinct and collaborate to develop innovative solutions to major societal challenges.

Miglic MacLeod was consulted by developers Lendlease to redesign a structural façade of the proposed building to be safer, more efficient and streamlined than the previous design.

The façade consists of angled brickwork which overhangs the parallel pedestrian walkway, interspersed with sheets of shaped glass.  
 
The challenge was to find a design solution which supported and secured the brickwork facade.

The challenge of a structurally complex design was reviewed to find a safe, functional and optimised solution.

Our solution was practical, efficient and safe. We met regularly with our client to talk through ideas and challenges until both Miglic MacLeod and Lendlease were satisfied with the outcome.

The innovation precinct we’re developing in partnership with Lendlease has been shortlisted in the 2018 #World Architecture Festival awards. With completion anticipated in late 2020, the precinct will provide an unrivalled opportunity to co-locate and collaborate with start-ups, world class university researchers, government agencies and industry.

Winners will be announced 28-30 November 2018 in Amsterdam.
