Broad Construction has completed the next-generation student accommodation in Perth – in what was the first development of its kind seen in Western Australia.
The 80 Stirling Street Student Accommodation Refurbishment and Extension project incorporates international-style ‘Campus 4’ shared living environments, where four students will integrate within modern and attractive surrounds.
Broad secured the project following an early contractor involvement phase with clients GCP Hospitality, Gaw Capital Partners and developer DevWest Group to produce an innovative and cost-effective design and construct program.
Designed to appeal to a diverse range of domestic and international students, Broad has created a quality asset of long-term value, and a vibrant and creative living environment for students.
