Work under way at Sarich neuroscience facility

The first sod has been turned at the Sarich Neuroscience Research Institute in Nedlands, with Cockram Construction set to begin work under a $30.3 million contract.

As reported by Business News in March, the facility will be located on the Verdun Street boundary of the Queen Elizabeth II Medical Centre campus, with $20 million in funding provided through a donation by Perth businessman Ralph Sarich, $7.2 million in Lotterywest grants, $3.5 million from Curtin University, and $1 million each from the Wheatley family and the University of Western Australia.

Health Minister Kim Hames said the project had been made possible by the work of neurosurgeon and Department of Health acting director general Bryant Stokes, and the generosity of the Sarich family, whose contribution is one of the state’s largest ever personal donations.
