Bio 21 Incubator
This refurbishment project was established in 2019 and aimed to upgrade the existing 3-storey building in the Bio-Health precinct to allow for an increase in private sector engagement.
Bio21 is a private-public partnership venture that connects medical start-up companies with the health research clusters at the University of Melbourne.
The brief for the project was to upgrade laboratories, staff amenities and common areas to entice commercial research tenants.
Hatz worked closely with the project manager and the stakeholders to develop a brief, prepare a feasibility study, and coordinate the consultants.
