26 Feb 2024

There will be some investigative works taking place at Chemistry Building (68) which forms part of the UQ Façade Replacement Program.

Affected Area & Disruption



Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences Buildings

Southern Elevation

  • Investigation of the service riser above the Chemistry Building southern entry.
  • A boom will be used to access and investigate the service riser. This may create some noise and will require an exclusion zone on the ground.
  • The entry to Research Road from Cooper Rd will be closed during these works. Pedestrians will be diverted around the exclusion zone. Vehicles will need to access from the top of Research Rd.
    Refer Figure 1 for extent of exclusion zone.
  • Chemistry Building southern entry will be closed. Molecular Biosciences Building northern access will be closed. Entry to these buildings will be via alternative entries.
