JCU Vet Sciences Facility
The James Cook University (JCU) Vet Sciences Precinct integrates advances in veterinary science with intelligent architectural design to provide students and staff with functional, inspiring and collaborative learning space.
Designed to enhance university life and the JCU brand, this world-class teaching and research facility is equipped with the latest technology, featuring an administration building, Necropsy-Pathology PC2 laboratories and a pig handling facility.
The design team at PDT Architects designed the necropsy suite to support interactive, team-based learning with viewing areas, audio infrastructure, overhead cameras and LCD screens. The administration building features two and a half storey-high glass atriums at both the front and rear entrances to provide abundant natural light and improve air quality and circulation.
