A spokesperson told pv magazine that the TETB will also be the new headquarters for the UNSW Centre for Energy Research and Policy Analysis (CERPA). Work's been progressing rapidly since a sod-turning attended by Prime Minister Julia Gillard (she was then deputy PM) at the end of last year, he said.
According to information released at the end of last year, the project is an initiative of the Australian Government and is being conducted as part of the Education Investment Fund. It has received government funding of AUD$75 million.
Situated on the corner of Anzac Parade and the University Mall, the TETB is the most prominent remaining site on Campus, says UNSW, and accordingly requires an iconic building that will provide a gateway to the Faculty of Engineering, the Lower Campus, and the University as a whole.
