The Joondalup Campus is set to be transformed with a new $72 million building program that will create a new, active space for university life.
Drawing together student facilities under one roof, Building 34 will become the centre of campus activity, making ECU Joondalup an even more desirable place to study and work.
It will be located between the Building 32 lecture theatre and the Library, forming a link between the two. The project will create a ‘campus street’, offering a new marketplace and increasing the vibrancy of the campus.
The new building will complement the striking, modern architecture the Joondalup Campus is renowned for, including the iconic Chancellery (Building 1) and the award-winning Library (Building 31).
Building 34 will meet five star energy efficiency targets and incorporate state-of-the art technology, including large LED panels that will display signs, live information and student art.
It will also become the highest building on campus when completed.
With five floors, the building has been designed to draw in natural light, connect with outdoor areas and engage with the existing buildings. You can view a slideshow of more images of what the building is expected to look like via the ECU website.
The initial works will commence on Monday, 16 April after the mid-semester break. This means there will be a reduction in parking spaces in car park 2 behind the Library.
During the initial period of work you will need to consider using other parking areas on campus, including car park 11, or alternative ways of travelling to campus.
A number of parking bays will be returned for use in September when the initial works are complete. Full construction starts later in 2012 with the building expected to open in early 2015.
If you have any questions regarding changes to the parking please contact Mark Deamer in the parking team.
