The Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture (ACC&C) is an ecumenical foundation which was established in 1993 under the auspices of the National Council of Churches in Australia (NCCA). Xact participated in the development of the original masterplan for the ACC&C, and was selected as Project Manager for the construction of George Browning House (CSU House).
George Browning House is an academic research facility sponsored by Charles Sturt University (CSU) and is a key part of Stage 2 of the development of the ACC&C. The centre provides a focus for ecumenical activity in Australia and is an entirely new development, consisting of academic offices which surround communal spaces on two floors.
Key factors in this project included management of the site to protect heritage interests, and the careful selection of materials to reflect the overall vision for the site and natural surroundings.
