The Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture (ACC&C) is an ecumenical foundation which was established under the auspices of the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA). The ACC&C is located on a five hectare site on the edge of the Parliamentary Triangle in Canberra, on the CSU Canberra Campus at Blackall Street, Barton. Xact participated in the development of the original masterplan for the ACC&C, including the design management and delivery of George Browning House, completed in 2009.
The latest stage of development after George Browning House is the CSU Multipurpose Pavilion, which is to be a new multi-purpose meeting and teaching centre available for use by CSU and ACC&C personnel, as well as by community groups as required.
The new Pavilion will incorporate a multi-purpose meeting room, supported by a kitchenette and staff amenities and will be joined by an entry lobby to the gardens beyond. The Pavilion will be situated so as to take advantage of the natural beauty of the location, and the view of the Great Cross, which is being refurbished as part of the construction works. The early stages of the works involve demolition of the redundant administration buildings on the site of the new pavilion.
