The new Engineering and Mathematical Science building at Adelaide University has a number of innovations to its credit. One of them is that it can now be used as a case study for courses taught inside it. The building, which was completed last year, is part of the extensive redevelopment of Adelaide University. Designing it to fit a crowded site had its tricky elements. A large cedar tree of heritage significance needed protection. Brick cladding was required to match the building to others around it. With research and teaching ongoing only 3 metres away, dust, vibration, hazards, air pollution and noise had to be kept to a minimum.
