The Roundhouse UNSW – Final Inspections

With less than 2 months until the opening party for UNSW’s ‘The Roundhouse’, our team of JHA Engineers complete their final inspections of the iconic building.

Beautifully redesigned and redeveloped, the impressive entertainment venue is almost ready for the 2018 university year. Designed by Tonkin Zulaikha Greer Architects, the heritage building has been brought into 2018 with TZG’s signature aesthetic including robust, dramatic materials such as Australian Spotted Gum and strong architectural detailing. The interior spaces have been utterly transformed by the new circular central skylight which during the day floods natural light throughout the building.

JHA’s Specialist Lighting Design team worked closely with TZG to conceal integrated lighting where possible, especially on the mezzanine level where achieving minimum illuminance is critical during performances to allow the complex audio visual system to take centre stage on the ground floor.   We look forward to seeing all the engineering services in the space come to life with the first performance.

The external spaces of the surrounding public domain are also undergoing a transformation in conjunction with landscape architects Aspect Studios, completing what is destined to be a dynamic quarter within the UNSW precinct.

JHA Consulting Engineer, Alex Bartley, shows JHA’s Environmental Engineering Intern around the redevelopment at The Roundhouse UNSW.
