A Job Well Done: Our Top 3 Design and Construct Projects

A Job Well Done: Our Top 3 Design and Construct Projects

26 Nov 2018

Here at EMCO Building, we have over thirty years of experience across the multi-residential and commercial building sectors in Western Australia, and have constructed everything from healthcare facilities to recreation centres. In fact, we now have so many design and construct projects under our belt that it was difficult to choose our favourites. Here are just three of our more recent top design and construct projects.

HBF Arena

Based in Joondalup, HBF Arena is an impressive multi-purpose sporting facility spread out over 35 hectares of lush parkland. The brief was to re-develop their existing football and basketball facilities with a $20million upgrade, including the design and construct of associated amenities for the West Perth Football Club and the Wanneroo Basketball Association. This was to include the following:

⦁ A new four-court basketball stadium
⦁ Player amenities
⦁ Function areas
⦁ Football development services
⦁ Member facilities
⦁ Administration areas

The re-development was opened by Minister for Sports & Recreation Mick Murray at the end of 2017.

Murdoch University Student Accommodation

The brief for the student accommodation at Murdoch University was to create a modern, appealing and cost effective living space for 296 residents that would appeal to students from a wide range of backgrounds. Three of the structures were 4 level residence buildings, with an additional single level building required to house amenities such as:

⦁ A laundry
⦁ Change rooms
⦁ Common usage facilities.

In addition to these functional inclusions, the project also incorporated a pool with a village green atmosphere to enhance the atmosphere and liveability for residents. We’re immensely proud of our ability to deliver an end product that was both highly functional, appealing and allowed a large number of people to comfortably live in close proximity to each other while completing their studies.

Bottleyard Apartments

EMCO Building were commissioned by Handle Property Group to redevelop an old North Perth bottle yard into a 125 apartment complex. The completed works consisted of seven buildings that ranged from two to five storeys high, along with a carpark in the basement. 

During excavation, old bottles were found that dated back to 1912, along with many other artefacts now showcased in the West Australian Museum. In addition to the apartments, the new premises also includes:

⦁ The largest rooftop solar PV arrays in the southern hemisphere, powering all apartments in the complex and reducing the site’s carbon footprint by around 50%
⦁ A herb and vegetable garden
⦁ Shaded outdoor retreat for residents
⦁ Private rooftop terrace area
⦁ Many of the colourful glass excavated now on display as artwork throughout the complex

The project was completed late last year and appeared on Channel Nine News.
