Last week the Westmead Redevelopment held a pop-up event to answer questions about the exciting Westmead Education and Conference Centre (WECC) refurbishment program.
Members of the project team attended the pop-up at Westmead Hospital in the level 1 special functions area. Staff and students were invited to ask questions about the upcoming WECC project which will see the level 1 and level 2 areas of the WECC undergo a much needed facelift. The WECC project is planned as part of the University of Sydney’s $60m investment in the West-mead precinct.
The WECC refurbishment project aims to create a new highly engaging teaching and learning environment within Westmead Hospital. It will provide attractive learning and relaxation spaces, designed to encour-age interdisciplinary collaboration between students, researchers, clinicians and other precinct staff, to enable exchange of knowledge and ideas.
The new space on level 1 will be tailored to the teaching and learning requirements of students and staff. It will consist of formal and informal learning spaces with “bring your own device” capabilities. The level 1 space will also include a new contemporary staff room for use by hospital support staff.
We’ll be talking more and more about the WECC project in updates to come as we continue to plan for this major refurbishment to Westmead Hospital—so stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!
