Designing in Revit allowed us to deliver an effective building services design that proactively detected potential issues
The Joondalup campus at Edith Cowan University was looking to provide students with additional administrative student services support. Building 34 includes a 5-level atrium and house student service functions over 5 levels, with integration of Noongar cultural references throughout.
Our team was heavily involved in the project as engineering consultants, collaborating to deliver an inspiring and robust design with a focus on architectural intent. We designed the building in BIM Revit, allowing for effective building services design and early detection of potential issues throughout the development stages. Design features included ducted, chilled, and heating water air conditioning, ventilation, heating, and building management systems in compliance with the Building Code of Australia and Australian standards. Efficiencies were gained with heat recover air handling systems to supplement free cooling and displacement systems in the atrium.
The resulting Ngoolark building creates an integrated student and research centre within a campus urban design framework. Landscaped areas connect the new facility to surrounding buildings, uniting an entire precinct including the library, lecture theatre, chancellory building, and key campus pedestrian links.
