The University of Melbourne Veterinary School | Learning and Teaching Building
The AU$63 million-dollar redevelopment of the Melbourne Veterinary School Learning and Teaching Building provides enhanced facilities for pet treatment and training for future veterinarians in Victoria, Australia. The project includes a new five-story learning and teaching building and a two-story veterinary hospital.
Through a strong working relationship with a variety of stakeholders — each with unique requirements within the facility — Integral Group delivered a facility that not only benefitted students, but also the local community.
The building has been awarded a 6-Star Green Star Design rating and As Built certified by the Green Building Council of Australia. Original sustainability targets for the project were exceeded during construction, and consequently, the Veterinary School Learning and Teaching Building became the University of Melbourne’s first building to achieve a 6-star accreditation.
With key sustainability features, such as passive, energy efficient building design, smart metering, environmentally sustainable building products, fixtures, fittings and furniture, and integrated photovoltaic and hot water systems, this project is a wonderful example of leadership in sustainable building design and construction.
