Shamrock Electrics were engaged by BADGE construction to assist in the construction of the new School of Indigenous Studies Building in UWA’s Crawley campus. The building serves as an expansion to the University’s thriving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Higher education programs.
This new building is designed to blend in with the cultural narrative of the site’s local flora and fauna, integrating with Prescott Court directly north. It accommodates a wide range of facilities including informal and collaborative learning spaces, as well as research and postgraduate office spaces.
Shamrock Electrics’ scope of works during construction of the building included, but was not limited to the installation of submains cabling and Low voltage switchboards, general power, fibre optic cabling and structured cabling, lighting and intelligent lighting control systems including landscape lighting, dry fire detection, electronic security services and hydraulic services.
Construction of this building provided Shamrock with many challenges, including working on large open concrete ceiling surfaces, and landscape lighting installation which allowed minimal margins for errors. Due to the prestigious nature of the building, stringent quality requirements were imposed for all scopes of work. Nevertheless, Shamrock were successful in managing our personnel and subcontractors to overcome these obstacles.
