University of Tasmania (UTAS)
Everything old is new again on the streets of downtown Hobart, with the official opening of the freshly refurbished campus of the University of Tasmania's School of Nursing & Midwifery. Combining all the charm of early 20th century architecture with the comforts and energy-efficiency of 21st century design and technology, the building is now an epicentre of learning for a whole new generation of future nursing professionals.
“In the last few years there’s been a push to bring the university back into the city and so they [the University of Tasmania] decided to bring functions like the School of Nursing & Midwifery and also health functions to this site.”
But there were a number of challenges, the first being adapting a heritage building to accommodate new demands.
