The works involved significant demolition and new structural work to underpin existing walls and form the new auditorium steps and slabs.

With site access restricted to one relatively small opening in the heritage facade, completion of the project was akin to key hole surgery.

The fit-out elements included full AV systems and an electronic glass switching system allowing the occupants to change the glass from clear to opaque at the flick of a switch.
