Education & Research
The twenty-first century has seen a revolution both in the knowledge we have access to, and the way we share it. As a result, educational buildings need to be more adaptive, more flexible, than ever before. Robert Bird Group sees this challenge as our opportunity to deliver creative and innovative design solutions for building structures in this sector.
To design and deliver such innovated responses that cater to current and future requirements is demonstrated through landmark projects such as the Charles Perkins Centre at the University of Sydney, and the Biological Sciences Phase 1 Redevelopment at the University of New South Wales.
