Murdoch University - Building 360

The 'Building 360', the largest mass engineered timber construction project in Western Australia, is currently being delivered by global contractor Multiplex on the grounds of Murdoch University in Perth, Western Australia. The new building comprises a total of four storeys and is designed to sustainably improve student life at the university through new, innovative spatial concepts. The large spans enabled by the use of glued laminated timber (GLT) allow for flexible room design in order to be able to react flexibly to future changes. In addition to the use of the most natural building material in the world - wood, there are photovoltaic installations on the roof as well as a concept for natural ventilation. The 'Building 360' is thus setting new standards in the field of sustainability, both nationally and internationally.
