It takes a lot to build a new icon for Greater Western Sydney. We know that many hours go into designing and building the site but what about the actual materials?
We took to the worksite and asked the Hansen Yunken team to tell us a bit about what actually goes into creating Western Sydney’s new theatre for the arts.
- 5,400m3 tonnes of concrete have been poured as of September 2018. That’s 5 million kilograms!
- 1,350 tonnes of steel will be used to provide the frame for this gorgeous piece of architecture
- 1,380m2 of beautiful glass will be installed, much of which will provide beautiful linear panels for the light to stream into the main foyer
- They folks on the work site have so far clocked 120,000 hours of work across a variety of trades
- If you laid out the steel ropes for our theatre counterweight flying system one after the other, they would reach a massive 30 kilometres. That’s the distance between the Western Sydney Performing Arts Centre and Homebush!
The Western Sydney Performing Arts Centre is due to open late 2019
