Nearing completion: Flinders University Biodiversity Facility

Posted on Jul 30, 2021

Part of Flinders University’s upgraded science precinct, the new Biodiversity Facility supports the university’s reputation for world-class research and teaching. Located at the College of Science and Engineering at the university’s Bedford Park campus in Adelaide, the facility will be a state-of-the-art, purpose built research and education biodiversity facility.


Designed in association with Phillips/Pilkington Architects, the 505sqm facility incorporates bespoke environmental conditions with a focus on humidity, temperature and light control. The facility also includes landscaped outdoor areas designed to be in-keeping with its bushland surrounds and sympathetic to the landscape.


With environmental issues at the forefront of global debate, the new Biodiversity Facility will play a vital role in supporting the teaching and learning of conservation and biodiversity. Currently under construction by Sarah Constructions, the facility is due for completion towards the end of 2021.


As national specialists in the design of science, greenhouse and storage facilities, the new Biodiversity Facility follows the recent completion of our high-tech New Science Research Facility for the University of Technology Sydney. H2o Architects also has an impressive track record of projects in South Australia, which includes a number of collaborations with Phillips/Pilkington Architects, such as the University of Adelaide Plant Accelerator.


The Biodiversity Facility will support contemporary teaching and research across biodiversity, nature conservation and education.
