Andrew N. Liveris building

The Andrew N. Liveris Building will support researchers and students to address sustainability challenges facing our world and create positive change for developing populations.

This project was realised thanks to a historic gift from Mr Andrew Liveris and Mrs Paula Liveris.

At 11 storeys high, the building will stand as the tallest building on UQ’s St Lucia campus, and the new home for the School of Chemical Engineering. It will act as a vibrant hub for industry and interdisciplinary collaboration to address global challenges in areas such as energy, water and sustainable manufacturing.

It is expected to be completed in July 2021. View the latest construction update.

Pilot hall

Chemical engineering is all about creating things at scale. This new pilot hall will show case fundamentals of processes used in an ideal range of industry sectors like energy, water, bioengineering, metals, materials, gas, food, mining and petroleum.

Design studio

Chemical engineers must work collaboratively on large process designs using various modelling tools. This area will facilitate work-integrated group learning work for the students.

Learning centre

UQ chemical engineering graduates have said that the number one feature of their UQ experience was a student learning space where they could work on industry-related group modelling and design projects together – just like they ended up doing in industry.

Teaching lab

Having the state of the art experimental laboratories for teaching the basics of chemical engineering will be a showcase for UQ. Having a hands-on lab work in conjunction with high quality lectures and research-informed progressive chemical engineering applications will attract people to UQ.
