Western Sydney University’s Bankstown City Campus (BCC) is a transformative and pivotal cornerstone propelling the progression of Bankstown CBD. The impressive 18-storey tower comprising nine levels for education and nine levels for industry exemplifies an innovative and sustainable approach to education and research, combining technology, design and the highest achievable green credentials to provide a range of long-term economic and social benefits for the region. BCC brings together 10,000 students, 700 staff and industry partners to create a highly accessible, technology-rich environment for the local community, fostering universal collaboration in learning and research. Featuring LaunchPad and the Factory of the Future, the campus nurtures entrepreneurship and provides resources for local businesses. The campus’s design is visually stunning and environmentally responsible, pushing the limits of sustainable development to deliver a connected, interactive, and social experience for students, tenants and the region through its innovative fit-out, outdoor terraces, intuitive wayfinding, and transport connectivity. The project was recently certified with a 6 Star Green Star Design and As Built rating – the result of meticulous planning and collaboration between Walker and Western Sydney University.

Overall, the design of the Bankstown Central Campus is a significant step forward in sustainable building design.
