This presentation will be on the engineering behind the rebuilding of Her Majesty's Theatre in Grote St Adelaide.

Our presentation this month will be of special interest to Adelaidians, consultants, designers, contractors, and anyone interested in the rebirth of this beautiful building.

Her Majesty’s Theatre has undergone a total rebuild with only the façade and eastern wall remaining of the original structure. Cox Architecture did a fantastic job of designing the “new Her Majesty’s Theatre with Hanson Yuncken as builders.

Aurecon were engaged by Cox Architecture to provide all engineering services for the redevelopment project including mechanical, fire, electrical, communications, security, pedestrian modelling, specialising lighting, vertical transportation and hydraulics. Fahad Islam, Senior Mechanical Engineer, was responsible for the design of the underfloor displacement system which balanced patron comfort with strict acoustic design criteria set by the project. Michael Richards was responsible for developing the specialist house lighting package together with the interior design team from Cox to enhance the heritage features of the building and provide flexibility to cater for a variety of performances.
