The project design team specified the use of Durra Panel acoustic roof, ceiling and wall systems, to form an acoustic envelope throughout each studio complex.

State-of-the-art, high performance film and television studios.

The challenge was to design and build state-of-the-art, high-performance film, and television studios in a very challenging construction environment.

The studio land was situated on the Yarra River flood plain with no solid foundation material to work with. Further, a multi-lane express way was located next to the proposed complex at roof level. A high performance and lightweight acoustic shell was to be the key to a successful project outcome.
