team employed state-of-the art technology

atrium, and was required to construct in-ground
ductwork to deliver airflow from the existing
university system to the new building.
Through its collaborative approach with the
architects, effective time management and high
attention-to-detail, PACT Construction has
demonstrated once again that its position as one
of Western Australia’s leading commercial builders
