Science & Engineering Building (SEB)

Randwick, NSW

The SEB is a multi-use building housing laboratories, research, learning and performing arts spaces.  The laboratory areas within the building were designed to suit vibration criteria being – RF = 1 to the typical laboratory spaces, VC-C to the laboratory spaces at Level 5, and VC-E/F to the most vibration sensitive areas in the basement.  TTW undertook vibration analysis to optimise the structure whilst achieving the required vibration response.  The basement also houses the IO Myers and Studio 1 theatres and associated spaces, beneath the raked podium slab over.
