Project director Jamie Cargill said the atrium construction was completed last year, during the redevelopment project’s first phase, but the result could be fully seen only after the recent removal of covering materials.
The atrium links the new clinical services building, completed mid last year, and the Walsh Building, better known as the dental school.
The new building houses clinical services, including radiography, oral surgery, paediatric dentistry, undergraduate clinics and orthodontics.
More than 200 new, state-of-the-art dental chairs are among its features.
The overall main contractor is Leighs Cockram, and Aurecon Advisory is the project manager.
The current phase of the project, phase two, involves extensively refurbishing the 8000sqm Walsh Building, which houses non-public functions, including academic offices, laboratories, and school administration.
The atrium would be fully completed by mid to late January next year, Mr Cargill said.
