The GHD Woodhead designed Southern Cross University Building B continues the strategic implementation of the Gold Coast campus masterplan, which includes the development, sequencing, landscape, access and environment considerations for site B.
The ten storey building of approximately 15,417 sqm houses a significant component of Allied Health Research facilities, including cutting-edge clinical laboratories for nursing and midwifery, laboratories for occupational therapy students and physiology, anatomy and biomechanics laboratories for pedorthics, podiatry and speech pathology. The building also provides learning spaces to pursue scholarship in tourism, business, arts and social sciences, and education. Student facilities include computer rooms, meeting rooms and a student lounge.
The building occupies a prominent position on the site and completes the first precinct which includes the foundation Building A, carparking and public forecourt. The building provides a contemporary and complementary architectural form consistent with Building A and the future Building C.
