The School of Veterinary Science at the University of Queensland is a new state-of-the-art facility which includes a major research facility, a small and large animal teaching hospital, post mortem and anatomy teaching laboratories, animal holding facilities and administrative accommodation.

Due to the school’s existing facilities being in urgent need of replacement and refurbishment, and as they could not accommodate research and teaching activities pertaining to large animals, Architectus was engaged by the University of Queensland to design the relocation of the school from the St Lucia campus to the Gatton campus.

 

The relocation provided the Veterinary School with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment which enabled the school to gain accreditation with the Australasian Veterinary Board and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, and future accreditation by the American Veterinary Medical Association.

The new school is a significant addition to the University of Queensland’s Gatton campus and is housed in both new and existing buildings within a newly defined Veterinary precinct.

New buildings have been carefully located to create courtyard spaces which promote the flow and interaction of people within the precinct and to existing circulation routes back into the campus.
