Lang Walker Business Centre
The Lang Walker Business Centre is a significant feature of the landscape at the southern end of the College on Scotsman’s Hill. The Centre provides 1,270 square metres of floorspace over two levels, consisting of the equivalent of eight teaching and learning spaces which are fitted out on the innovative Activity-Based Learning (ABL) concept; an adaptation of the fit out so popular with leading commercial entities.
Building on the success of this concept in the Graeme Clark Centre, these spaces include opportunities for individual and collaborative working areas along with a purpose-built lecture theatre and conventional classrooms. Also included is a clinic, visitors change room, and an Old Boys’ Room. Endowed by the Old Boys’ Union, this beautiful room on the upper level can open out to adjacent spaces creating a large function space for hosting seminars and dinners, as well as supporting sporting and commemorative events on the Oval. It also features exhibitions of historic records and objects from the College collection and enjoys a synergy with the research centre on the same level. This facility, with additional archive storage, will provide a base for College research staff.
