Narre Warren, VIC
The $125 million public building is being constructed for the City Casey Council and will become the new civic hub for the Narre Warren area. The building will include an 800 seat theatre, a car park, an international standard art gallery, office space for over 400 staff, council chambers, a flexible exhibition and performance space and a public library.
The central focus of the building will be a timber gridshell that defines the main atrium of the building. The gridshell assists with the support of the roof and the podium in the building is a prestressed concrete frame.
This exciting central space will have a 12m high glass facade facing a large community plaza area beyond. The remainder of the freeform roof structure will be constructed of steel with spectacular cantilivers at the building corners.
TTW are working closely with FJMT architects and timber subcontractors to optimise the timber roof form within the spatial design constraints. The multiple functions of the building create challenging design conditions, especially with respect to acoustic separation.
$130 million council facility proving an 800 seat theatre, art gallery, office space, council chambers, flexible exhibition space and library within the Casey precinct. Extensive landscaped external areas to the building include a large amphitheatre, new car park areas, reading and nook gardens and a beautiful grove area.

- Large scale site earthworks
