With help from Schiavello Construction, the corporate education centre in Brisbane was built to meet the requirements of their Graduate School of Business.

A longstanding partnership

As part of a longstanding relationship with the university, Schiavello Construction (QLD) was engaged to complete the fit-out. Schiavello worked closely with QUT and DM2 Architecture to transform the centre, which was completely stripped back to basics.

The upgrade featured the installation of all new services and a series of flexible learning spaces, including two new seminar rooms with expansive 4m ceilings, a comprehensive staff area, a meet-and-greet professional networking zone and four new syndicate rooms. The finished product is the perfect marriage of contemporary design and cutting-edge technology, with superior level acoustic treatments and a purpose-built media wall.

Schiavello products complement an agile environment

Architectural highlights include new external glazing to optimise natural light, an impressive interconnecting staircase and custom made feature lighting. Schiavello’s Bene Workplace System and Marina Fold Table were installed to complement the agile working environment – providing ease of use and customisation for staff and students alike.
