ADaPT (Advanced Design Prototyping Technologies) Centre

Griffith University, Gold Coast Campus



The ADaPT (Advanced Design Prototyping Technologies) Centre is a facility designed to significantly enhance the university’s technology resources.

It will incorporate many correlated functions – a Big Data Visualisation facility advanced 3D printers and robotics, an Experiential Design Laboratory, Biomanufacturing and Molecular Biology Laboratories, clean and PC2 laboratories, materials fabrication laboratory and wet chemistry laboratory. Considerable space is provided for University partners to co-work and research.

The building’s gross floor area is 16,642 m2 over 7 levels. It is sited on land which served as the operational centre for the 2018 Commonwealth Games and is being principally developed for university partnerships and commercialisation.

The design controls environmental conditions to enable facilities normally internalised to express a transparency to the surrounding streets. While the building is directly opposite the Griffith campus proper, it will effectively form the address into the campus, thus the emphasis upon the university’s red branding.
