University of Queensland – Duhig Library

The University of Queensland underwent a renovation to levels 1 and 2 of their Campus Library. The revamp was a nine-month project beginning December 2018 and was completed July 2019, the library officially reopened September 2019. The objective was to create accessible, comfortable, welcoming and engaging spaces for the students with more natural light and collaborative flexibility.

New Building Features:

  • Modern spaces with more seating
  • Presentation Rooms
  • Spacious study desks with power outlets
  • Student Cafe


The Solution

CMS power and charging solutions help to create better facilities for students to study and collaborate.
The CMS in-desk power solutions have been integrated into the desks of the study spaces, providing students with the ability to work and charge their devices easily without having to stop and hunt for a power outlet.
All the wiring has been tucked away neatly inside the umbilical’s which are fitted into both the ceiling and desktop.

Axess umbilical managed cables from the ceiling to the collaborative desks, with Odyssey above-desk modules supplying power and USB-C fast charging outlets to the collaborative pods.

The below-desk under trays in the longer collaborative tables were fitted with CMS SW18 softwired power outlets, they were supplied together with our CAT6 data provisions and USB-A and C fast charging modules, keeping devices charged up on the move. Access umbilical managed cables from the desk to the wall and floor outlets.
