Tomkins Commercial & Industrial Builders and The University of Queensland have joined in a landmark new partnership.

Tomkins will be refurbishing and extending the Gatton campus’ existing JK Murray Library.

The existing library is a two-storey concrete, brick and steel development constructed in 1973.

The proposed refurbishment and extension will revitalise existing facilities and provide additional space, including a new 24/7 student study centre.

Construction on the JK Murray Library has started and is due to be complete mid-2017.
