The Learning and Teaching Building is a key piece in Monash University’s reinvigoration of the Clayton campus southern precinct—the largest infrastructure development program in the campus’ history.

It currently sits as the largest development on site, delivering 28,000m² of teaching space and housing the Education faculty across four levels. The building has been created to enhance the dynamic learning environment offered by the University and further their innovative educational practices with more than 60 formal and informal learning and teaching spaces.

Irwinconsult provided Structural and Civil engineering services from early works through to completion including stormwater drainage and pavement design for the landscape redevelopment of the southern precinct, a high traffic area used by pedestrians, cyclists and as a transit interchange.  An 836 space underground car park has also been developed adjacent to the Learning and Teaching Building providing increased access for users of the southern precinct.

Key innovative features of the Learning and Teaching Building include the 25 metre span transfers over the three ground floor lecture theatres, and an impressive 23 x 70 metre structural timber roof. Photography Trevor Mein
