WA National Winner Lighting & Design & Construct for Boola Katitjin Building (Building 360) Murdoch University
Our Electrical team received recognition for their innovative lighting and design work at Murdoch University’s Boola Katitjin Building.
This building is the first of its kind in Western Australia, with most of the structure made of laminated timber, meaning our team had to change how they executed their Electrical work. As part of the aesthetic of the building, it had no ceiling spaces, resulting in exposed services that had to blend into the architectural finish of the building.
Our team carefully planned and coordinated the installations to ensure the highest level of craftsmanship was implemented and that it was integrated seamlessly into the design.
