Architectus appointed to design UNE Tamworth Campus

A disused velodrome on the edge of the city centre in Tamworth, New South Wales, will be transformed into the University of New England’s (UNE) latest campus, with Architectus leading the design.

Architectus was appointed to lead the design for an agile, adaptable and resilient campus that’s connected to the broader UNE teaching, learning and research network.

“Our design for UNE’s Tamworth Central Campus will deliver a community-centric approach to teaching, learning, research, and regional industry engagement,” said Principal Karl Eckermann.

UNE Interim Vice-Chancellor Professor Simon Evans said UNE Tamworth Central will be the anchor for UNE’s offering in Tamworth.

“UNE is deeply committed to UNE Tamworth Central. Through this project we would like to create greater opportunities for higher education and professional development in Tamworth. The design process that we now embark on will accommodate the changing needs of education in the decades to come.”

The first university campus for the regional centre, UNE Tamworth Central will complement UNE’s Armidale campus and improve access to higher education and industry connections. It will also generate increased employment opportunities in the region.

Community and stakeholder consultation on building design and function will now commence, with master planning and concept design expected late 2023.

Project Management firm Touchstone Partners will deliver the project. Tamworth-based firm Hill Lockart Architects will provide site inspection assistance during construction period.
