On behalf of ECU, OPRA Projects delivered an upgrade to their Enright Studio in Building 1, a unique black box theatre capable of accommodating up to 70 people in a flexible seating area.
The refurbishment of the original theatre included a full electrical services upgrade, notably a new Audio Visual system, as well as upgraded bathroom and shower facilities, and change rooms. OPRA Projects also replaced the existing façade as shown.
As is typical for University projects, the project involved many stakeholders. It required a high degree of coordination by OPRA Projects to ensure delivery with minimal disruptions to students, and academic and non-academic staff. Long lead-time items were also a concern with the theatre having a critical practical completion date, the commencement of the teaching and learning calendar. OPRA Projects delivered the project in a challenging nine weeks.
