The Biotechnology Building was designed in 1991 as the first of a series of research buildings intended to form a Life Sciences precinct within the university campus at Belfield.
Although relatively small in area (it is only 1,500m2) its plan form and elegant appearance with north facing laboratories on two levels and a south facing studio-like drum for write up, was hugely successful and won several design awards.
It was clad with small scale modular GRC Panels (900 x 900mm) with granite bands at the window heads. The complete building was subsequently absorbed into the much larger “Conway Institute” designed by the practice in 1999.
