Professional consultancy APP Corporation has been appointed as Project Manager for the delivery of University of Newcastle’s $95M NeW Space campus in the Newcastle CBD.  The campus is intended to breathe new life into the city centre.

The Project is jointly funded as an initiative of the Australian Government being conducted as part of the Education Investment Fund, the New South Wales State Government and the University of Newcastle.

The new campus facility is expected to comprise over 10,000m2 of functional space including a library and information common, collaborative learning spaces and zones for professional and community engagement. 

Gillian Geraghty is APP’s Project Director for the project and says:  “The University of Newcastle has a clear vision for this exciting project, which is to provide a world class space for the faculty of Business and Law as well as providing upgraded digital capabilities across the whole University.  With such a significant investment, they are on a path to realising this vision and APP is committed to making it happen for both the University and the local community.”

The new campus is scheduled for completion in time for the 2017 academic year.
