B302 East Gate Precinct & Hayman Theatre Upgrades

Project overview

Curtin will be delivering upgrades to Building 302 Hayman Theatre and new sanitary facilities to service the East Gate precinct. This project will see improved integration with the University’s Eastern Gateway, providing a welcoming, attractive and functional facility whilst respecting the heritage value and character of the existing architecture. The upgrade will enhance the visibility, identity, accessibility and operational elements of the Hayman Theatre, in addition to providing an improved user experience.

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 will overcome the current shortfall of sanitary facilities and improve wayfinding for those entering from Brand Drive and the Curtin Bus Station. Extending the life of Building 302 will assist to improve the Hayman Theatre’s acoustic performance, rejuvenate its foyer and provide much needed rehearsal space for the Company.
