Overview

The refurbishment of the Meeting Chamber in the John Scott Meeting House will provide the facility with a modern facelift, and establish it as a highly functional and flexible meeting space for both the University and external users.

The refurbishment implements best practice design principles with respect to spatial planning, thermal comfort, current ICT and AV technologies and recycling of existing materials and fabrics.

The upgrade will provide the University with a state-of-the-art conference facility, able to accommodate a number of uses in one space.

This project contributes to the University's Future Ready strategic goal of 'Lively connected campuses' and Melbourne Campus Masterplan strategy that will see the Melbourne campus evolve into a 'University Town'.
