University of Technology Sydney, Building 10

Transforming a historic building to a contemporary facility 

The University of Technology Sydney required an extensive refurbishment to their Building 10. SHAPE was engaged to transform the historic Fairfax Building into a modern and contemporary facility. The scope of the works included the refurbishment from the ground floor to levels eight, which included a new student services centre, offices, class rooms, amenities, plant rooms, storage area, bike stores, timber staircase and green walls. The new building will host the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) and the Faculty of Heath (FoH) from the Karing-gai Campus to Building 10 from late 2015. 


“The UTS CB10 ISIS team delivered a complex, staged project which was spread across multiple construction sites within the building. The team performed well ensuring that disruption to UTS building occupants was kept to a minimum. The project involved the upgrade of essential building services and included services shutdowns. The ISIS team worked around UTS operations ensuring little disruption to UTS operations and end users. I found the team pleasant to deal with and communication channels were kept open throughout the project duration.”
