The Hillsong Church already have multiple locations around Australia, however this will be their latest project and a flagship venue for the Gold Coast region.
The Auditorium itself will accommodate over 700 people and also have multiple supporting rooms that allow for smaller internal events.
Works commenced in the last week of 2019 and will be completed by September 2020
There are a number of key challenges and constraints that present themselves when designing and working within an existing structure, such as supporting of ceiling mounted items and large height walls which are required to be supported by internal structural steel and numerous layers of soundproofing.
The other key challenge is coordinating works with Hillsong Audio Visual and Events Teams to ensure that all works are available at Practical Completion for community events to roll out immediately after handover.
Both project and subcontract teams are working collaboratively across multiple fronts to accelerate the project and deliver an exemplary product.
GCB are looking forward to the commencement of sound checks and commissioning later on in the year.
