City of Casey Cultural Precinct - Bunjil Place
CHW Consulting has been appointed to lead the AV design and the coordination for the delivery phase of the City of Casey’s new cultural precinct, Bunjil Place. The $125 million project is currently one of the largest projects undertaken by local government in Australia.
Due to the complex nature of this large scale project and the high level of coordination required, CHW was engaged to take over AV services and see it through to completion. The AV coordination is the next exciting stage of this four-year project, and CHW Consulting will be responsible for finalising the AV design and coordinating the integration of AV services. Our previous work on similar projects such as the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre and Hamer Hall, as well as our strong resource capabilities, makes us the perfect choice for such a comprehensive project. Our large team of specialist AV consultants are working closely with award winning architects Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp, a team of specialist consultants and contractors to ensure Bunjil Place is delivered to the City of Casey on time and within budget.
Once completed, Bunjil Place will be an iconic arts and community centre featuring a purpose built 800 seat theatre, regional art gallery, library, function centre, community plaza and council offices. A number of complex, custom designed AV systems valued at over $3.5 million will be seamlessly integrated across this state of the art facility. The community plaza, a designated space for family gatherings and community events, will also feature a large outdoor screen and events space similar to Federation Square.
Bunjil Place is scheduled to open to the Casey community late 2017 and will offer a place where locals can connect, collaborate and celebrate. The cultural precinct is expected to attract 1 million visitors annually and will provide much needed arts and cultural facilities to Melbourne’s south eastern suburbs.
CHW Consulting is extremely proud to be brought on board this project, particularly at such a critical stage, and we look forward to helping the City of Casey achieve their goals of developing a unique community facility that brings together art, leisure, entertainment, library and civic services.
