QUT Kelvin Grove Dining Precinct Refurbishment



RCP was engaged by QUT to provide tenancy co-ordination services for a new student food court precinct located at the Kelvin Grove Campus in Brisbane.

The tenancy mix includes Asian and American style food choices plus coffee and juice operators. The tenancy fit-outs were intended to complement a significant upgrade to the existing C Block office building which had been constructed some 30 years prior.

The RCP team worked closely with the tenants and designers to develop individual tenancy designs to a standard acceptable to the University and acted as the liaison between the tenant fit-out contractors and head contractor to manage fit-out access and services relocation interface to accommodate the new traders.

Predominant project challenges included working within a building framework that was over 30 years old and a head contractor with limited retail experience.

The new food court opened on time to coincide with the commencement of Semester 1 2016.
