ECU Joondalup Library Refurbishment (B31) | Interiors

This project involves the refurbishment of the Library at ECU Joondalup to accommodate significant changes in the profiles across all levels of the existing building. This has in part, been the result of the completion of ‘Ngoolark’ (Building 34).

This refurbishment has been undertaken in two parts; the refurbishment of level 1 and the refurbishment of levels two to four.

The focus of the refurbishment is two fold. The first is to create a change of operation by the Library in order to further liberate its delivery of services to the student population. This was achieved  by reducing the quantities of physical books in the library spaces through increasing delivery on line, increasing the type, quality and diversity of student informal learning spaces within the library and  support a more free form staff presence through the elimination of the provision of ‘the front desk’ and creating a more open service delivery environment.

The second aspect of the refurbishment includes the provision of accommodation for PIBT (Interaction Student Services Provider) which was moved from the Mt Lawley campus, as well as consolidation of office accommodation for Library Services staff, and the return of the Law facility into the building, including the previous old moot court. Apart from the office accommodation for PIBT, 8 classrooms were established in this building (where previously there were none) as well as a ‘pop up’ shop style student services booth on level 2. This project was complex, staged and undertaken in a live environment to very tight deadlines.
