Designed by Cox Howlett + Bailey Woodland in association with local architects Roberts Gardener, the striking Albany Entertainment Centre is the result of an extensive planning process between the State Government, the City of Albany and the Great Southern Development Commission.
Premier Alan Carpenter said “the landmark design would become a jewel in the crown of the new Albany waterfront precinct. As well as being the focus for performing arts in the Great Southern region, the entertainment centre will play a key role in reinvigorating the waterfront.”
Constructed by Perth builders Doric Constructions, the Albany Entertainment Centre is complete with a 620-set auditorium, rehearsal space, café, convention/corporate function space and an observation platform, which has a breathtaking view of the Princess Royal Harbour.
This dynamic building is dominated by four ‘triangles’ of zinc-cladded panels, with an inner ‘diamond’ of zinc roofing and glass skylights.
To prevent roof space and interstitial condensation forming, Proctor’s Roofshield breathable membrane was introduced and installed by HM Metalcraft.
Installing Proctor’s Roofshield breathable membrane behind the zinc cladding prevents moisture ingress whilst allowing water vapour to escape. The breathable membrane reduces the risk of mould growth and corrosion within the building structure, effectively allowing the building to breathe.
