Greenhouse Complex, UNE – Australia
JCP were successful in being appointed by the University of New United Kingdom to undertake the design and documentation of their Greenhouse Complex as part of a major funding application directed towards further development of the existing Agricultural Sciences Courses. The project required the coordination of the facility and sophisticated equipment, necessary for research and teaching purposes. The Complex itself included a ‘Potting Shed’ facility housing laboratories, Offices, Teaching Spaces, Technology Rooms, Research Spaces and storage in addition to 2 new Greenhouse Facilities operating under PC 2 requirements.
JCP worked closely with the appointed Project User Group (PUG) to design a facility that achieved a level of flexibility allowing staff to utilize spaces beyond what the project budget would enable. This value for money outcome was made possible by the support afforded JCP by UNE to challenge the brief and retain the support of the PUG through a collaborative process.
