University of Sydney, Centre for Obesity, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease

This building was designed to support collaboration and new ways of thinking in research into obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease.


Steensen Varming facilitated this aim with several initiatives including the development of a bespoke environmental rating tool and full documentation of building services in BIM. The new building occupies 10% of the floor-area of the campus and is the largest project undertaken by the university to date.  An innovative laboratory lighting system, daylighting, low-energy ventilation systems and a multifunctional façade further enhance the ‘thinking’ environment.
