universities & TAFES face substantial challenges with regards to their existing building stock and campuses, and their
future needs.

We can help.

Universities face many of the same funding shortfall pressures felt elsewhere in the education sector, combined with the fact that they are competing in an increasingly global marketplace for a finite pool of students and research dollars. At the same time, they are usually responsible for maintaining and utilising large collections of buildings of differing ages, with widely divergent whole-of-life costs.

John and Marcus of BCA partner with their tertiary sector clients, and bring their resources and expertise to bear on projects large and small. For example, for Federation University, BCA has taken on projects as small as paint colour selection for part of an existing building, ranging up to the major $12 million redevelopment of a suite of buildings with heritage complications.

The relationship we share with our University and TAFE clients is very important to us. A key assumption we bring to this relationship is that no project is too small or too large for the team at Baumgart Clark Architects. 


Since completing the Graduation Wall Project, and [after] successfully completing a range of smaller commissions for us [...] Baumgart Clark Architects [was] engaged by the University to design and deliver the Flecknoe Redevelopment project, a $12 million plus major project with heritage implications. On the basis of my experience with them, I would not hesitate to recommend Baumgart Clark Architects as architectural consultants for tertiary educational clients.
