Facade Replacement Works: Centre for Advanced Imaging (57) lookahead

3 Aug 2023

The Centre for Advanced Imaging (57) forms part of the UQ Façade Replacement Program. As part of these works the cladding on the CAI building will be replaced.

This notification provides an overview of works coming up over the next 2 – 4 weeks. Initially, the contractor will set-up their construction compound, followed by installation of site fencing, access gantries and mast climbers.
