The Macquarie University Arts Precinct Project (MUAPP) was a transformational project for the Faculty of Arts that consolidates ten of twelve departments into a precinct that showcases the unique nature and focus of each department.

The specific components of the project were:

    • Upgrade and expansion of existing buildings W6A and W6B from approximately 11,000m2 to 12,300m2 to meet current requirements for workplace, research and teaching activities, as well as building in a level of flexibility and adaptability to allow for future change
    • Provision of a new museum and office building W6C of 4,800m2 (consisting 2,800m2 of office/showcase space expansion, highlighting the work, research and achievements of the Faculty and brings engagement with the wider community and 2000m2 of Museum space that consolidates the Ancient History Museum (currently in X5B), numerous collections, Numismatics and the Australian History Museum

In 2020, at the Sydney Master Builders Association’s Excellence in Construction Awards, the project was the category winner for the Tertiary Buildings $100m – $200m award.

“This new precinct will be a transformational learning and research-enriched environment with access to enhanced learning facilities and an immersive environment for languages and culture. It allows for the continued growth of the Faculty and is a big part of our vision for the future growth of our campus,” said Mark Broomfield, Director of Property.

“The development of the new arts precinct is an exciting project to happen in the rich history of our Faculty, and it represents a strong commitment and sizeable investment in the future of arts, humanities and social sciences at Macquarie University,” said Professor Martina Möllering, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Arts.
