The Company was engaged by the Queanbeyan City Council to manage the construction of the new Queanbeyan Preforming Arts Centre. The Centre comprises of an Art Exhibition area, Stage and Theatre Seating. The Centre also has a large impressive  foyer ideal which can also be used for functions



The Preforming Arts Centre was designed using fabricated steelwork the largest pieces were 4 trusses measuring 22 metres in length and over 2.5 metres in height. The rest of the building structure was core filled block work which reached a maximum height of over 9 metres. The core filled block work serves firstly to stabilise the structure and secondly to provide acoustic protection to the interior of the building. The Acoustic levels are such that a performer on stage or an orchestra in the orchestra pit can be clearly heard from the back of the auditorium without needing to be amplified.

The external cladding is zinc panelling imported from France which has an expected life span of 250 years. Also used on the façade is a terracotta tile which was imported from Creaton, Italy.
