Pindan completed the Design and Construction Contract to build accommodation for students at St Catherine’s College – UWA.
The project included 250 self contained studio apartments, common rooms, indigenous cultural space, tutorial rooms, Head of College apartment, boardroom, meeting rooms, music rooms, autorial rooms, and recreation and administration facilities.
The facility consists of five main building blocks which are all four levels and incorporate a secure entry, wireless internet connections, swimming pool, half basketball court and roof gardens. Each studio apartment consists of a double bed, ensuite, kitchenette and reverse cycle air-conditioning.
The external façade consists of a number of different materials. The extensive use of split face blocks and limestone facades was deliberate in trying to match the new building with the feel of the older buildings at the UWA Campus.
