Construction has started on a new $72 million building program set to transform the Joondalup Campus by creating a new, active space for university life.
Drawing together student facilities under one roof and offering a new marketplace, Building 34 will increase the vibrancy of the campus, making ECU Joondalup an even more desirable place to study and work.
The new building has been designed to complement the existing architecture the Joondalup Campus is renowned for, including the iconic Chancellery (Building 1) and the award-winning Library (Building 31).
Building 34 will incorporate state-of-the art technology, including large LED panels that will display signs, real-time information and student art. It will also meet the equivalent of a five star energy efficiency rating.
With five floors, Building 34 has been designed to draw in natural light, connect with outdoor areas and engage with the existing buildings.
Building work started on Monday, 16 April 2012 after the mid-semester break. During the initial period of work those driving to campus will need to consider using other parking areas, including car park 11, or alternative ways of travelling to campus.
Building 34 is expected to be open to students and staff in early 2015.
