ABC Albany

Address | St Emilie Way, Albany WA

Project Budget | $1.3m

Area | 380m²

Designer | Brewster Murray

Renascent worked closely with Brewster Murray to complete the construction and refurbishment of the ABC Regional Broadcasting Facility and offices, involving the 180m² extension of the existing single-level building.

The construction component of this project includes the excavation of unstable soil, the import and compaction of fill, new slab on ground, structural steel, brickwork and the extension of the existing roof over the extended building. Internally the fitout changed an over-occupied office area into an open plan space. In addition to the increased office space, new production and editing facilities were constructed, a new meeting room and station manager office were added and the existing kitchen facilities were upgraded.

The project scope was completed whilst maintaining a fully operational broadcasting facility that involved a consultative and accommodating management approach with the local staff.
