Trinity College Cultural Centre

The Trinity Cultural Centre is a four storey music, arts and drama facility constructed for Trinity College in East Perth. The building consists of art rooms, rehearsal areas, a large performance space, offices, reception areas and large staff recreation room.

 

The building is a concrete frame structure with a structural steel roof frame and double cavity brick infill. The floors are constructed from delta core planks covered in a structural screed. A portion of the top level was also post-tensioned. The structure is clad with curved colourbond roof and wall sheeting, Toodyay stone, aluminium glazed panels and alucobond.

 

There were a number of challenges faced during the construction of the building which included:

 

  • Working within acid sulphate contaminated soils
  • The discovery of an underground stream which ran through the lift shaft. This resulted in a very serious dewatering system operation.
  • The discovery of serious concrete cancer to the existing building that the Cultural Centre was to connect to. This meant that the existing structure had to be repaired prior to connection with the new structure.

 

One of the main features of the building is the large ‘Pic Perf’ mural constructed from perforated powder coated steel. PS Structures liaised closely with the artist and metalwork subcontractor to manage the production of the mural from design stage until installation.

 

The site was surrounded on three sides by existing school buildings which made access to site difficult. There was also only a very small lay down area which made the management of deliveries, material storage and waste disposal crucial for success onsite.

 

The project was completed on time and within budget. Trinity college went on to award PS Structures a further two projects as a result of their good performance in the construction of the Cultural Centre.

 

“We have worked with PS Structures over several years for Trinity College. The Managing Director, Royle Godwin takes personal interest in all projects and is available at all times. We would certainly recommend PS Structures for similar projects”
