The Federal Government has committed to contributing $47M to the development of The Science Place at the Townsville Campus. It will replace two existing buildings at the campus and create an estimated 530 local jobs during the construction phase. Ecomplish are working with internal stakeholders to define the sustainability principles and targets for the project and tracking the initiatives throughout. All relevant rating tools are also being evaluated to determine their appropriateness for the university building.
