New Campus Fitout
|Client||Canberra Institute of Technology|
|Role||Principal's Authorised Person|
Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) intended to modernise its Tuggeranong services by creating a new Southside Campus at 205 Anketell Street, Greenway.
Since 2013, Xact had been Project Managing the refurbishment and upgrade of CIT for the building owners, 151 Property. By mutual agreement between 151 Property and CIT, Xact was separately engaged by both CIT and Procurement and Capital Works as the Principa's Authorised Person to manage the fitout works concurrently with the base building works.
CIT’s new campus is spread over two floors and the design concept was to be the new benchmark for CIT, delivering flexible and interchangeable learning spaces along with specialist classrooms for the delivery of vocational education and training for students in the Tuggeranong area.
205 Anketell Street was previously utilised as office accommodation. In order for CIT to operate in the premises, the building owner needed to seek an amendment to the Crown Lease to obtain approval for an educational facility to be accommodated in the building.
The new fitout was carried out under a MW21 contract form where the contractor was responsible for the completion of CIT’s fitout design.
