USIU Science and Technology Centre
Value of Project: $6 million
The project is seen as a combination of highly technical work in upgrading and extending USIU and providing enhanced and extended common facilities to serve the present and future needs of USIU.
The master plan, which has previously been developed by the architects, serves as a guide to all future developments on the complex. USIU intends to establish a world-class education.
The existing buildings, both technically, socially and administratively, are of mixed character, and we believe the Science and Technology building should reflect the latest science and technology in Architectural Character. Externally, this includes a stone plinth with composite aluminium panels above, in a double storey configuration set around a court yard. A high tech glass atrium forms the hub of the building. Solar glazing and naturally ventilated offices reduce the need for air conditioning except in selected labs and meeting rooms. The interiors reflect modern high tech, low maintenance and easily cleanable materials.
