The $72 million Ngoolark building will combine the university�s student and research services.

Built by PACT Construction, designed by JCY Architects and Urban Designers, the five-storey complex was named best commercial construction ($10-$50 million) at the WA chapter of the Australian Institute of Building�s Professional Excellence in Building Awards.

Ngoolark is the Nyungar word for the endangered Carnaby�s black-cockatoo. The golden sun-shading emulates the plumage of the cockatoo.
