Career Deconstruction Series


Industry figures involved in the New Academic Street project are invited to present to students as part of the ongoing Career Deconstruction Series. Architects, landscape architects, engineers, builders and project managers discuss their ideas, expertise and role in the construction of the new City campus learning spaces.

The Series kicked-off in mid-2015 and presentations will continue intermittently throughout the two-year life of the project, giving students valuable insight into the real-life workings of a major city construction project.
