COVIDIn the second on our series in Fluidity of Assets, we look at buildings and how they are currently being repurposed to provide new ways to help the community during the coronavirus pandemic.

Let’s head to Western Australia. Nineteen kilometres off the coast of Fremantle, lies Rottnest Island, famous as the home to Australia’s cutest marsupial, the Quokka. However, the infographic gives a brief history of the building assets on the island, and how they have been constructed and repurposed over time.  

And most recently, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Western Australian prime minister is considering the option of Rottnest Island being a quarantine zone1, highlighting again the fluidity of assets to meet stakeholder and community needs.
