B302 East Gate Precinct & Hayman Theatre Upgrades

Project overview

Curtin has delivered upgrades to Building 302 Hayman Theatre and toilet facilities to service the East Gate precinct. This project has created a more welcoming, attractive and functional facility at the University’s Eastern Gateway, whilst respecting the heritage value and character of the existing architecture. The upgrade has enhanced the visibility, identity, accessibility and operational elements of the Hayman Theatre, in addition to providing an improved user experience.

Project features

  • Refurbishment of the B302 foyer with partial weather enclosure
  • Construction of new all gender toilet facilities
  • New office space, box office/kiosk, laundry and theatre storage for Hayman Theatre Company within the undercover foyer
  • Construction of Back of House facilities including toilet, shower and change facilities
  • Refurbishment of Lecture Theatre 2 to provide a ‘black box’ rehearsal space
  • Refurbishment of existing stairs, ramps, handrails to improve accessibility
  • B302 roof replacement and infrastructure upgrades
  • Relocation, installation and lighting of ‘Sculptural Form’, a 4m high sculpture by Tony Jones, previously located at Tech Park B603

Project benefits

Upgrades to B302 and construction of associated facilities highlight the University’s commitment to the Faculty of Humanities and the Hayman Theatre Company. In addition to enhancing the East Gate Precinct, the project has overcome the previous shortfall of sanitary facilities and improved wayfinding for those entering from Brand Drive and the Curtin Bus Station. Extending the life of Building 302 has assisted to improve the Hayman Theatre’s acoustic performance, rejuvenate its foyer and provide much needed rehearsal space for the Company.
