ABC Studio, Gore HillGore Hill, Australia
Norman Disney & Young assisted Austin Australia Pty Ltd to win this design and construct project.
The studio is designed for the production of television drama series for the Australian Broadcasting Commission.
The project budget was very limited, but nonetheless the studio was required to operate at very low noise levels, and with high lighting loads. Norman Disney & Young provided all building services, including mechanical, electrical, fire and hydraulics.
The mechanical design was a key element in securing the project, with the following elements being instrumental in meeting the brief at low cost:
- Use of roof top packaged equipment
- Running supply air at medium velocities by reticulating moist air outside the acoustic enclosure but within the roof space.
The project ran smoothly through construction and commissioning, and met all the client’s requirements.
