Western Sydney University

Charter Hall, Western Sydney University (WSU) and the University of New South Wales formed a strategic partnership to deliver a new state-of-the-art campus including a worldclass engineering and innovation hub, along with high-end commercial and retail spaces.

Ideally located in the heart of Parramatta, the home of western Sydney’s infrastructure boom, the 19-storey, multi-use campus includes:

  • State-of-the-art tertiary education and commercial office floorspace
  • Ground level retail tenancies and tertiary education lobby space
  • Mid-rise and rooftop terraces
  • High quality end-of-trip facilities
  • Undercover car parking
  • Landscaping and public domain works, including the provision of a ground level, through-site link

The challenge

The joint owners, Charter Hall and WSU, required a fast-tracked development program to deliver a new integrated campus in time for the commencement of the 2021 academic year. Additionally, the project required the complicated amalgamation of three adjacent sites and the submission of a State significant development (SSD) application.

Our solution

WSU needed to have a fully operational campus at the same time the building was delivered, which required diligent planning to ensure that all program milestones were achieved.

Acuity worked closely with WSU and its procurement team to procure a design team to obtain WSU’s brief and deliver a highly developed and detailed design in preparation for the price submission.
