Sydney Coliseum Theatre
Located in the bustling heart of Rooty Hill, the Sydney Coliseum Theatre at West HQ represents a cultural milestone for Western Sydney. Opened in 2019, this 2000-seat multi-mode performance venue, crafted by Cox Architecture, is designed to host a myriad of events, from grand musicals and ballets to elegant corporate gatherings.
The Haron Robson’s team role was to bring our specialties in electrical, data, access control, and dry fire consulting services to meticulously tailor innovative technical solutions and meet the complex requirements of a modern performing arts centre while ensuring the functionality and safety into a dynamic and secure atmosphere.
We implemented comprehensive electrical systems, to support the venue’s diverse technological needs. This included ensuring efficient data communications throughout the venue, reinforcing its security with advanced access control systems. Furthermore, we installed advanced smoke detection and emergency warning systems, prioritising patron safety.
Communication with other consultants that were involved was integral to achieve a successful outcome. The project included Cox Architecture for its exterior and interior design, Marshall Day for acoustics, Maddison Property and Hanna Newman Associates for project management, Hansen Yuncken as the builder.
The Sydney Coliseum Theatre has received wide recognition for its architectural and design excellence, evidenced by awards such as the 2020 AIDA for best Public Design Award, 2020 Master Builders Australia Awards for Public Buildings over $30 and Best Use of Concrete. These accolades reflect not only the aesthetic and functional success of the theatre but also the collaborative effort and technical proficiency that brought this cultural landmark to life.
