Description of proposal

The project relates to the upgrade of existing external exhaust risers which contain existing ductwork associated with laboratory equipment (fume cupboards, vented cabinets etc.). The existing risers have been constructed externally between existing balcony low height walls and have been framed in combustible timber with external sheet metal cladding (assumed Colorbond). The existing risers are generally at maximum ductwork capacity, and therefore constraint the ability to install additional ducted equipment for growing research means. The objective of the project is to both address the presence of combustible timber framing, and increase the capacity to support internal laboratory upgrade project. The design intent is to adopt a similar aesthetic with a marginally expanded façade impact. In addition, the expanded risers would have a minimal impact to the Royal Parade and Mile Lane building presentation.
