This project has delivered a dynamic, functional, flexible and inspiring home for CSU Engineering at Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Bathurst. CSU Engineering is a new discipline that will be offered at CSU from 2016.

Charles Sturt University (CSU) is a place that welcomes, values and supports Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in their pursuit of higher learning.

The project also works towards the University's approach of maintaining and enhancing existing spaces for improved student experiences.
This project involves the replacement of the original lift in the William Merrylees Library at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga. The lift is more than 30 years old and many components of the lift have reached their end of life cycle. The new works will improve travel for staff and students who utilise the lift, including cleaning and catering staff. Access to level one, 24/7 Learning Commons computers and amenities, will also be improved. The upgrades will make the lift safer, more reliable and compliant with current-day standards.
