Canberra Southern Cross Club Function Area
This work comprised a major fit out of an existing vacant space built in advance for this project. The space was divided into 4 function rooms with operable walls capable of creating rooms of varying sizes. The space incorporated a stage, preparation kitchen, bar area, toilets and change rooms, extensive audio visual, lighting and mechanical to cater for up to 700 seated patrons (1000 in theatre style).
A new service lift was installed along with an access corridor in the basement from the main kitchen to the new service lift.
Due to the close proximity to an adjacent apartment block the design was subject to very strict sound rating of the external walls and roof. In order for the Club to operate the area with bands and entertainers, a sound rating of 65 STC was required. This very high level required the construction of double walls lined with high level acoustic insulation. The existing roof had to be insulated double lined underneath as well. The decorative ceiling below was also insulated and lined to provide further sound protection.
