Mansergh Shaw Building

Project: Mansergh Shaw Building, QLD | System: 110Beam and 85Beam

Level 5 of the Mansergh Shaw building located in the Mechanical Engineering Faculty at the University of Queensland won a 2012 Australian Institute of Architects QLD State Award for Interior Architecture as well as an Award of Commendation at the Queensland Chapter of the IES Illuminations Awards.


Electrical engineers Multitech Solutions based the lighting design on the Klik Systems Beam family. Klik’s 110 Beam D/I was specified, as well as the recessed version and they were combined with Klik’s 85 Beam to provide both task and ambient light for this important university building

While floors 1-4 of the building contain engineering labs, staff offices and a lecture theatre, Level 5 is home to research divisions and conference rooms, and the lighting of the space is absolutely crucial to the work that goes on there.
