Chatswood Civic Place Site Visit

24/11/2009

Had the opportunity to visit Chatswood Civic Place.  The project is really shaping up.  Most of the concrete is poured, the steelwork is starting to get erected.  All the scaffolding is shaped to the curvy form of the building, can start to imagine it now.

Helmets and glasses don’t mix.  Helmets, glasses and camera walking up stairs without handrails is even more of a challenge.

The trusses for the concert hall are laid out ready for installation.  To the left is the watercourt, and in the background are the retail buildings.

The drum theatre shaping up.

Looking over the Level 1 terrace.

This truss supports the atrium glazing, and will be clad in timber veneer

The top of the concert hall.

Realised at this point that I was scared of heights.

Looking down from somewhere high.  In the foreground is the concert hall facade wing.

Walking through the Library level.  The library stair is to the right with a skylight above it.  To the left is the watercourt.

Chatswood Civic Place

5/11/2009

Some model pix of the Chatswood Civic Place.  This is a project that I worked on for a while.  Its now under construction.  It includes a concert hall, a theatre, a multipurpose hall, library and retail.

The plaza and watercourt are surrounded by sandstone retail blocks
