UTS Tech Lab – Faculty of Engineering & Information Technology.

The UTS Tech Lab is a brand new state-of-the-art research facility located close to Sydney’s Airport in Botany.

Tech Lab provides 9,000sqm of modern purpose-built premises, providing cutting-edge research equipment and facilities for the university, and for potential industry partners.

Client: UTS

JHA Services: Mechanical, Electrical & Hydraulic

Location: Botany, NSW

The new spaces will accommodate a range of research and educational uses with facilities including CEMPE Research labs, Xlabs Manufacturing, Geotechnology Research, Acoustics & Anechoic Chamber, Photonics Lab, Welding Bay, Mortar Clean Lab Space, Service Life Materials & Characterisation, Antenna Chamber, open office areas as well as collaborative work spaces.

Beautifully designed by architect George Scoufis, JHA were integral in the building services design for electrical, mechanical, lab gas design and hydraulic services for the tenancy fitouts on the ground and first floor/mezzanine areas.

Some of the speciality areas included a climate chamber, for controlling temperature under humidity, a Wireless Communications and Networking Lab for 5G testing and an anechoic chamber, a confined area clad in sound deadening material on the walls, floor and ceiling. The chamber is designed to have no echo and needed to be Electromagnetic field free, which meant all electrical cables had to be shielded. As each lab had a different and very varied purpose, one of the challenges for the engineers was designing around specific needs for each area.
