Forestry Research at Lismore

Southern Cross University is located in the lush, picturesque Northern Rivers area on the Far North Coast NSW. The campus, with its steep slope and limited space created some interesting challenges for Richard Crandon & Associates, a local engineering firm contracted to design and supervise construction of the University’s new Forestry Research Building.

The project consisted of two separate buildings: a three-storey administration block and a two-storey research laboratory complex with a walkway-link between. The new building had to continue with the existing theme of the university as specified in the design brief.
