From Walker Corporation:

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 smart building ideas, boasting the highest achievable sustainability credentials while providing 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. It’s also home to the largest Western Sydney University Badanami Centre, a dedicated space for Indigenous students to study and connect with community.

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. The inclusion of innovative eco-friendly features that promote energy efficiency, reduce waste, and enhance indoor air quality have put BCC on track to achieve Gold WELL core credentials while minimising the tower’s long-term environmental impact. 

The campus's state-of-the-art technology and focus on sustainability make it an outstanding achievement that sets a new standard for future buildings. It continues to attract commercial partners seeking proximity to the university campus for the growth and development opportunities it offers.

The campus's mixed-use design creates a positive impact on the community's economic and social development by providing greater education and employment opportunities for the region and its people.

Additionally, cultural inclusion and community are key considerations throughout the project.  The campus design honours the Dharug people, guided by the University’s Indigenous Elders Advisory Committee.

The iconic “Wall of Hands” from Milperra has been transformed into a steel artwork within the heart of the campus’ student hub and boosts the largest WSU Badanami Centre, preserving Indigenous culture.
