University of Technology, Sydney's new Faculty of Engineering and IT opened today, as part of the university’s $1 billion buildings upgrade.
It is located at the university's city campus, on the corner of Jones Street and Broadway (opposite UTS Tower).
The aluminium binary code screens on the outside of the building spell out ‘University of Technology Sydney Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology’.
The screens also provide shade, reducing the need for cooling. It is estimated they will deliver energy savings of 10-15 per cent.
Solar and wind turbines are mounted on the roof of the building and will produce 40 per cent of the building’s energy needs.
UTS is targeting a 5 Green Star rating for the building.
