Taking on the redevelopment of a Norton Street icon is not for the faint hearted. Integrating significant structural additions and a complete fitout for the Palace Cinemas draws on EDT Projects’ broad skill base.
This challenging and important local project in the heart of Leichhardt, comprises the construction of four new cinemas and the refurbishment of an existing four within an extremely constrained site. The works require significant structural coordination, with the new cinemas “hanging” from the new roof structure and penetrating the existing structure down to the basement.
Managing the design to ensure innovative and robust engineering solutions is critical to the successful fast tracked delivery of the project. The construction methodology requires a proactive approach to problem solving on this tight site. For example, the erection of the tower crane means all loads are transferred to the existing structure. EDT delivered an integrated fitout of the Palace Cinemas and intimately understands the relationship between base build and the efficiency of a cost effective fitout.
