BALDIVIS LIBRARY & COMMUNITY CENTRE I PACT CONSTRUCTION INSTITUTIONAL
fter impressing locals with the
completion of the Baldivis Secondary
College, PACT Construction has made
its mark in the region yet again with
the construction of Baldivis’s new library and
Incorporating a contemporary library,
e-training areas, meeting rooms, offices, an
on-ground plaza area, and creche facilities, this
cleverly constructed building has become the
heart of the suburb.
The client, City of Rockingham, handpicked
PACT Construction from a group of eight
respected builders who submitted their interest
in the tender.
As with any of its jobs, the PACT Construction
team took great pride in carrying out each task
to the highest level, and working in with the
council’s time frame and budget.
Special features that make it unique include the
curved roof and intricate facade.
From the hexagonal ceramic tiles to the
stone, timber-and-aluminium composite
cladding, and rendered brick, there is very
little material repetition.
The delivery of services was also complex,
including the introduction of a suspended floor
system hosting reticulated data cabling and
distributing air-conditioned air.
Modern in design, with a timeless quality,
the Baldivis Library & Community Centre will
enhance the streetscape for years to come.
