New cutting-edge labs for La Trobe University

Posted on May 16, 2022

Our latest project for La Trobe enhances the university’s reputation for world-class rural health education, providing new nursing labs, together with wet labs for biomedical science teaching and research.


Announced this week, the university has received Federal Government funding towards the delivery of state-of-the-art labs for health and science students in Mildura. The new facilities will help address the increasing demand for local nursing and healthcare professionals, and will allow the university to introduce a new Bachelor of Biomedical Science from 2024.


The labs are designed to provide nursing students with an environment that closely resembles a hospital or other clinical setting, “nursing students will have the opportunity to practice the skills and techniques they will need in a real-world situation, while being safely supported by skilled teaching staff”, Dean of La Trobe Rural Health School Professor Jane Mills.


Our studio has delivered more than 50 projects for the science, education and technology sectors, including the recently completed Science Research Facility at UTS and the new Flinders University Biodiversity Facility. Construction of La Trobe’s new facilities is due to begin later this year.


New cutting-edge labs in Mildura: the facility will help bring the university closer to realising their ambition to establish a new rural medical training pathway in the Mallee region.
