arete Australia served as the Principal Contractor for the Digital Human Bioscience Facility project at RMIT University Building 201, Bundoora Campus. The project involved the refurbishment of Level 2 (Mezzanine area) of Building 201, existing Anatomy Teaching spaces, and the installation of new roofing over and provision of new Plant Platforms.

The main objective of the project was to create a state-of-the-art Digital Human Bioscience Facility. The refurbished area features four spacious Laboratory Teaching spaces, each with unique features to cater to the specific needs of students:

  • Lab 1 (wet Lab) boasts a new clerestory skylight to bring natural light into the space.
  • Lab 2 (broadly Physiology teaching) is a versatile space designed for the teaching of various aspects of Physiology.
  • Lab 3 (overflow Anatomy and Physiology teaching) is a multi-functional space designed to cater to both Anatomy and Physiology teaching requirements.
  • Lab 4 (smaller Lab containing Anatomage tables, Museum pots, and Student study desks) is a smaller laboratory with Anatomage tables, Museum pots, and Student study desks.

The project was completed within the specified timeframe and budget, and the Digital Human Bioscience Facility now serves as a key facility in RMIT's Bundoora campus.
