The Arthouse in Wyong is a large community building featuring a 450 seat theatre, 150 seat studio and a restaurant. It’s designed to be a distinctive facility that provides new opportunities for local, regional and national touring productions – thus boosting tourism in the Wyong Shire Council.
Northrop were engaged to assist the Mechanical contractor in making their revised project solution work. Initially over budget, the contractor had explored other options but needed assistance on how to execute.
There were a number of coordination issues with the original design which we worked with the contractor, builder and other disciplines to solve. Northrop reworked plant areas and system designs to remove barriers and allow cost effective solutions on a very tight timeframe.
The venue is due to open in early 2016.
