Western Projects were engaged to complete the highly anticipated Hayman Theatre and East Gate Amenities Upgrade at the Curtin University Bentley campus.
Works included refurbishment of the two existing theatre spaces and a new build extension to enhance the facility with additional office and amenities spaces. Working in conjunction with the Architect and Superintendent, construction was completed in two separable portions to allow a fast-tracked handover of the newly refurbished theatre spaces to the Hayman Theatre Group. All construction activities were forward planned and coordinated with the project team to ensure minimal disruption to Curtin University operations, to include material deliveries with all access paths to site set up on a temporary basis.
Key design elements of the new Hayman Theatre spaces include kiosk and prop store areas for the theatres, all gender amenity spaces and a refreshed theatre foyer entrance with new decorative concrete. The works were coordinated in conjunction with University stakeholders to ensure the purpose-built facility met the functional and operational requirements of Curtin’s performing arts stakeholders. The project provides example of our team’s ability to deliver a highly polished design project in a live university environment.
