James Cook University (JCU) completed a large construction project “The Science Place” at the Townsville campus. The state-of-the-art, 12,000m² building includes laboratories, learning facilities and a 6m cylindrical aquarium that leaves visitors excited to see more.
University staff, high schools and the community are encouraged to utilise the aquarium for marine research and teaching opportunities.
The aquarium life support system and rockwork bommie were built in AAT’s factory before being freighted to site for installation. AAT’s extensive procedures and commitment to quality control guarantee a smooth transition from contract to completion.
