The University of Melbourne, Melbourne Conservatorium of Music

Slattery was appointed as cost consultant by the University of Melbourne for the consolidation of eleven buildings into one world-class conservatorium, the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (MCM), at the Southbank campus. The iconic façade and acoustically superior building presents a unique opportunity to create educational and performance spaces at the heart of Melbourne’s arts precinct, as part of the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA) campus.  The new building will comprise orchestral rehearsal space, studios, music workshops, teaching spaces, educational centre, administration, library and external landscaped areas for informal performance training.

Throughout the project we established weekly meetings with the external PM and Client to improve communication lines and mitigate cost issues on a project with a challenging budget.
