Further developments will be determined largely on the success of the Eakins Redevelopment.

Concept designs will be created to be used for both preparation and fund generation We will make these designs available to club once released. The Eakins Redevelopment What Why Covered ramped walkway from the JCR to Eakins Wheel chair access Smoother function operation Removal of Eakins foyer

stairwell Increase floor space and functionality Increase space and usability of the Stafford room Addition of an elevator servicing the Stafford room Creation of two independent functional rooms (Foyer/Stafford) with wheel chair access and catering access Provision of toilet block adjacent to Eakins in bike

Will serve Eakins, the Foyer and the Stafford Room. The New Project Facilities Complex The main thrust of the whole Project Almost entirely for the purpose of Queeners but with some day conference and external student use (especially in the holiday term).

Residential Developments Kernick Over. Leprosy Eliminated. The new residential block is to be designed to suit graduate students and SCR. 3 floors orientated in line with J and Parnaby wings. 6 apartments of 4 rooms to a bathroom, kitchen and living area. The Culture of Queens Impact of new construction Potential disruption to community Change in geographical location and numbers of students social segregation? More randoms? Less security and insulation. Commercial enterprise or Residential College?

All of these points were raised by us at the Council Meeting. The Council aims to retain the sanctity of the Quad and the community and give the students of Queens the best facilities possible. The only means by which this can be achieved is increasing cash flow eventually to stream into other divisions within college (Eakins, IT, sporting, performance etc.) This is well understood by all on the council and included in the New Project document. Point of Interest Melbourne Model Applicable to 85% of undergrad Queens community (15% RMIT/VCP) Potential change to student

demographic/length of stay What are we doing about it? Committee (Nathan W, Mel W, Jesse Z, Courtney F (past pres) and two Wyverns (Linden Ashcroft and Michael HugDanish).
