Cooper Lodge 2 Student Accommodation
Cooper Lodge 2 is located at The University of Canberra’s Bruce Campus, a few minute’s drive from Canberra’s city centre and the Belconnen Westfield shopping centre.
The project consists of two buildings, one of eight stories, and the other six stories, connected by bridge links on four levels. Both buildings will be home to 497 students at the University of Canberra. Cooper Lodge is a mixture of single occupant studios and five bedroom apartments with an undercover secure area for bikes.
The ground floor of both the interconnecting buildings will provide convenient commercial and retail space for the students.
PBS’s project team have carefully designed and styled each room with a modern feel whilst managing to provide an energy efficient, environmentally friendly and cost effective building. Cooper Lodge has been designed to meet the requirements of a 5 Star Green-Star rating.
The project is due for completion in December 2016, four weeks ahead of program and under budget.
