Deakin University Waurn Ponds

Inspiring spaces for university life

As part of major capital works for Deakin University, SHAPE was engaged on to expand and refurbish 2000 m2 of the central campus at Waurn Ponds – the University’s second largest campus located 72 kilometers south west of Melbourne. The university focuses on providing inviting spaces for collaboration and interaction as part of the fabric of university life. This new build and refurbishment reflects that notion, upgrading the dining and communal areas to ensure a high quality student environment that is both modern and inspiring.

As SHAPE’s second project at the Waurn Ponds campus, the new build aspect represents SHAPE's breadth of delivery. The scope of works comprises 35% new construction and 65% refurbishment, extending to new external paving and extensive landscaping fitted with a water harvesting system.

SHAPE has critical experience working within an operating school campus, with over 4300 on site students at Waurn Ponds, and offered a collaborative, partnership approach, and to deliver a high quality finish with zero defects.
