Thinking #wayback to Bunbury Centrepoint Shopping Centre renovations and extensions for Primewest, circa 1995. This project represents two firsts for our team – first project for Primewest and first collaboration with HASSELL Studio.

Over the past 22 years both have become repeat clients and with HASSELL we’ve completed multiple projects in the sectors of Health, Education, Retail, Commercial and Multi-Residential. Highlights have included Willetton Senior High School, The ...Garden Office Park in Osborne Park, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Centre, Rockingham Kwinana Hospital Emergency Department Upgrade and we’re currently working together on the $130M Karratha Health Campus.

Here’s looking forward to another 20 years! Thank you Hassell.

At the conclusion of NAIDOC Week, our team welcomed Bev and Darren from Creative Native Perth to teach us about traditional dot paintings and the meaning behind the works. The session resulted in four beautiful works of art, completed by our team. This impactful experience resonates strongly in recognition of this year’s theme “Our Languages Matter” – recognising that art is a form of communication and is a significant medium for sharing history, values and culture. Thank you Creative Native. #NAIDOC2017

Today we celebrate engineering as an inclusive profession, which values and supports the contributions of women in the engineering team. As much as we strive for equality in all aspects of diversity, not all interactions are alike. Encouraging women in STEM disciplines facilitates balanced teams with opportunity for more diverse perspectives and solutions. Within our industry, this is crucial to a well rounded design for our communities.

(Photo features a few of the women on our incredible team: Sara Matulovic, Effie Fox, Denise Tyler-Hare, Beata Kotecha, Miriam Salter and Veronica Bonnar. ALSO in our fantastic team, but missed from the photo opportunity below - Cliodhna Doran)

We recently had the special privilege of attending a smoking ceremony at the site of the new Ellenbrook Early Learning Centre project for MercyCare with SPH architecture + interiors.

We were honoured to participate in what is said to be one of the most significant ancient ceremonies performed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The ceremony involves smouldering various native plants to produce smoke which is believed to have cleansing properties capable of warding off unwanted spirits. The site will soon become home to a new 86 place childcare facility for children aged 0-5 years.
