Becton Dickinson building public realm

BD public realm concept 

Overview

This project forms part of the body of work to de-traffic the campus and prevent the campus roads from being used by 'through' traffic. It involves the upgrade of the roads and public realm around the BD building at 4 Research Park Drive.

The work includes the re-aligning of Innovation Road from University Creek to the rear of the BD building, via the existing carpark roadway to Research Park Drive. Research Park Drive will be transformed to a pedestrian friendly route with new decorative paving and enhanced landscaping.

Wally’s Walk will be extended across Research Park Drive to 75 Talavera Road Building and University Creek, with quality finishes and landscaping incorporating wheelchair accessible ramps along with stairs, decorative seating and lighting.

The BD building carpark entry/exit will be relocated to the eastern side of the building to create a safer and more direct vehicle access.

Project status

The tender documentation has been completed and tenders for construction will be called in the first quarter of 2017. Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.

Benefits
