RMIT School of Textiles

RMIT School of Textiles
Location: Melbourne, Victoria
Year: 2000
Value $6.5M
Client: RMIT University
Architect: H2O Architects
Description: This 3 storey building accommodates the relocation of textile facilities from Pascoe Vale to the RMIT Dawson Street / Brunswick Campus.
The environmentally responsive facade incorporates passive solar temperature control through a double skin facade and as a result the building is only partially air conditioned.
Services: Wilde and Woollard provided full cost management services from conception through to completion including the preparation of provisional and subsequent re-measured bills of quantities. Numerous costing feasibilities were also prepared to support the environmentally responsive design solutions.
