The Mayne Centre building houses the UQ Art Museum. While holding a collection of more than 4,000 pieces, this building is also renown for its award wining architecture.

The Mayne Centre is rapidly progressing in the sustainability ladder with the recent addition of  a 133.62 kWp rooftop PV system, efficiency improvements in its air conditioning system, and the installation of specialised LED lighting in exhibition spaces.

The Mayne Centre PV system is expected to generate 196,000 kWh per year. This is one of few art galleries in Queensland powered by its own photovoltaic system.
