UTS building a reputation for design, construction and sustainability
If you think UTS’s new buildings and facilities are pretty special, you’re not alone.
Since UTS:InProgress reported on a raft of nominations, commendations and awards last year, the City campus’s new facilities have continued to make an impression on architecture, construction and sustainability experts.
Most significantly, the Dr Chau Chak Wing Building is being considered for a coveted Property Council of Australia Innovation and Excellence Award in the Best Public Building category, with the winner to be announced in early June.
