Student Accommodation Engineered for Better Living
University of Sydney’s Regiment Building is a brand new student dormitory with eight levels for housing 620 beds, learning and recreational facilities.
Its ideal location on the narrow corner of City Road and Darlington Road gives the structure a unique form while maintaining some of its historic charm.
The construction aims to enhance the student lifestyle to deliver better living spaces and flexibility at lower fees.
JHA Consulting Engineers fulfilled the services of Mechanical and Electrical engineering, and Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD), plus Hydraulic engineering. Additionally, the Fire Protection System, Vertical Transport and Level 3 Electrical design were carried out.
The Environmental Sustainable Design process adhered to the University of Sydney’s sustainability framework to achieve a silver rating. Any recommendations were welcomed for reaching elements of a gold standard.
Overall, the construction of the building and its new facilities are geared to providing a better lifestyle for the students’ physical and mental health. The vision for an improved student life and its connection beyond the campus propel the University’s mission and values onto a global stage.
