Who we are
COLAB is a Perth based, not-for-profit organisation established in 2014 by a group of local engineers. Get to know us better!
Community organisations need infrastructure to do what they do.
We believe engineers & architects want to use their skills for social benefit.
We are enabling engineers and architects by connecting them to community organisations in need of their pro bono skills.
What we do
We provide a market place for engineers and architects to find community projects in need of their pro bono services.
For community organisations seeking project assistance, the COLAB’s Meeting Place offers a one-stop-shop providing convenient access to high quality design and construction services.
Architects and engineers have a strong culture of building social capital through pro bono work.
Create a market place where architects and engineers can leverage their skills by providing pro bono work on community projects.
