The Lincoln Marine Science Centre is starting to transform, with vacant land on the block being made into a centre of excellence.
The $6 million expansion of the tertiary education centre is ahead of schedule, and is set to be finished by the, desired time of late June next year, according to Candetti Constructions site manager Ben Johnson.
The block next to the existing structure was levelled and retaining walls have been built,paving the way for major building works.
"All the lower level block work has been completed, along with the walkway to the building and some retaining walls," Mr Johnson said.
"We will be doing the suspended floor for the rest of the week."
The two-storey laboratory and office facility is set to create a national centre for excellence in marine science research, doubling the size of the centre.
