South West Christian Church
Description: The South West Christian Church project consists of a total refurbishment of the existing church and large auditorium extension.
The project was completed in two stages. The first stage comprised construction of a brand new worship hall (auditorium) that joined on to the existing structure. The worship hall is an 800 tiered seat auditorium used for services and productions. It also features a 96m2 stage with a full theatre audio / visual system installed. There are also two levels of storage, change rooms, and mixing booths incorporated to this area. Precast panels, bondor panels & compressed sheeting all make up the outside structure of the building along with energy saving glazed windows. The roof structure is made of strammit roofing and a large concrete plant roof deck to hold all the air-conditioning units.
Once the Worship Hall was completed, stage 2 works commenced on the existing building. This was completely gutted and rebuilt into a new 2 storey building. Inside holds a new café, foyer area, reception and a mezzanine area which holds new offices and meeting rooms. Construction of a new car park, concrete pavements, acoustic perimeter fencing and fully landscape gardens complete the external works.
