Robert Menzies College – Student Accommodation at Macquarie University
First established in 1972 the Robert Menzies College is a safe, vibrant and affordable college located adjacent to Macquarie University in North Ryde. Big River was proud to supply a range of building materials for the 2012 upgrade of the premises. The refurbishment ensured the right balance of modernisation and coherency with the existing architecture on the site. The materials used in redesigning the 4 storey, 103 bed student residency included convenient and durable Matrix and Linea fibre cement cladding, as well as spotted gum timber decking.
