Mayne Medical Building Refurbishment

At 82 years young, the Mayne Medical Building in Herston is having an injection of new life. The new facilities will provide alumni and the wider Queensland medical community with a world class event space and the opportunity to reconnect with one of Brisbane’s most iconic buildings.

The update will see the refurbishment of meeting rooms and the introduction of a function centre on level four. With new event facilities and a commercial kitchen, the Mayne Medical Building aims to become the preferred function and conference space for Queensland’s medical community and will be available to alumni, friends of the Faculty and the wider community from mid 2020.
