RMIT Food and Science Laboratory

A complex project delivered to the highest quality standards

RMIT Property planned to transform a dilapidated floor of its science building into a contemporary teaching laboratory with capacity for 180 students. The fitout had many technical aspects including a commercial grade kitchen, a sterilisation room, fume cupboards and a blast freezer. The project required collaboration with other contractors and RMIT wanted the fitout completed within a critical time period.

A modern teaching laboratory

The client wanted an 1100 square metre laboratory with natural light, exposed ceiling services and vinyl floor coverings. Extensive plastering work was carried out to repair the old ceilings and make them look presentable. The client was very happy with the quality of the fitout and has since hired SHAPE for other projects, including the Penrose Feature Façade on the corner of Latrobe Street.


“I wish to extend my sincere thanks to SHAPE in delivering this outcome. The works are of a good standard with inherently minimal defects for a project of this size and complexity.”
