Geelong Performing Arts Centre: A Season of Transition!

07 Aug 2018 General all,

Exciting things are happening in Geelong's Cultural Precinct, and MultiTek Solutions is thrilled to be sharing in this excitement!

MultiTek Solutions has successfully secured the Theatrical Technical Infrastructure and AV Systems Package Contract for Stage 2 of the Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) Redevelopment. MTS has maintained close professional ties with GPAC now for well over a decade, whether providing Theatrical AV solutions or ongoing maintenance and support. Several of our highly qualified Audio Visual technicians and experts have previously worked for GPAC in Senior Technician and Theatre Management positions. This successful procurement further cements MultiTek's long-established professional relationship and association with GPAC.

There's no doubt that Geelong's Arts Precinct is thriving and transitioning to its next level, and MTS is pleased to be part of this revitalising wave. GPAC is undergoing a massive transformation with the demolition of existing buildings and the creation of a new five-floor building and a unique, accessible new entry on Ryrie Street.

As part of this ...the Stage 2 Redevelopment will also see the emergence of two new foyers, new dance studios, bar area, and rehearsal and creative industry spaces. Work is also currently being done to meticulously preserve the historical integrity of what was GPAC'S original steeple church.

Once completed, the stunning new design by international Melbourne-based architecture studio, HASSELL will be a synthesis of old architecture with modern design. Built by award winning Kane Constructions, the striking new translucent facade will form a commanding presence along Ryrie St with the historic facade of the original steeple church nestled subtly beside it.

MultiTek Solutions is thrilled to be part of this exciting and revolutionary theatre project and looks forward to seeing the new and improved building unveiled. MTS will be working to the specifications provided by ARUP Theatre Consulting Services to achieve the very best in theatrical functionality.

GPAC is one of Geelong's most iconic cultural and artistic hubs and continues to be a highly valued client of MultiTek Solutions. We are excited to be providing Audio Visual Solutions for this incredible project.
