Probuild to deliver $300 million Curtin student accommodation


19 June 2019

Probuild has been appointed to build the Greater Curtin Stage One Student Accommodation project in Perth, Western Australia, for a consortium led by InfraRed Capital Partners.

With a development value of more than $300 million, the project is made up of two student accommodation buildings with about 1,000 new student beds and a third building housing 38 apartments and 60 hotel rooms. The buildings sit over a mixed-use precinct of retail, commercial and recreational spaces with a combined Gross Floor Area of 57,400m2.

The development forms part of Curtin University’s new Exchange precinct, a transformative hub that delivers genuine mixed-use development to serve as a catalyst for innovation for students, industry and the broader community.

“We’re excited to be ramping up our presence in WA’s University market.” said Probuild’s WA Managing Director, Sam Delmenico.

“This is the first time we’ve worked with Infrared Capital Partners and we are pleased to have formed such a strong partnership right off the bat. “This is Probuild’s second construction project on Curtin University’s Perth Campus, building on the relationship initiated by the University’s TL Robertson Library development.

“We’re really looking forward to working with these organisations to help realise the Greater Curtin vision.”

Curtin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry said Exchange was a unique higher education development because it is a genuine mixed-use development that brings many industry sectors into a community destination.

“Exchange has been designed to transform Curtin’s main Perth Campus into a major innovation hub where research, industry and the wider community will be able to come together to drive real-world solutions to tomorrow’s challenges in one convenient location, so I am absolutely delighted that this important milestone has been achieved,” Professor Terry said.

“Our new student accommodation will be located in the heart of our main Perth Campus, and has been designed to complement our current 1,150 student accommodation beds. The new development will target a 5-Star Green Star Design and As Built which includes water recycling, energy minimisation initiatives and is situated close to Curtin’s bus interchange.”

The contract win caps off a big 12 months for Probuild in the education space, with the company recently converting the $200 million Victoria University Tower in Melbourne, as well as the ECI contract for the $70 million refurbishment to Curtin University’s Library.

Probuild has already commenced working with consultant team and site establishment is anticipated to begin in July 2019 with construction commencing shortly thereafter and completing in 2021.
