The Queensland Ballet’s Thomas Dixon Centre in Brisbane’s West End has been undergoing a refurbishment including a three storey expansion to revitalise the iconic building. Built in 1908 and home to the Queensland Ballet since 1991, the redevelopment of the historic centre will allow for additional spaces for both rehearsals and performances.
The completed centre will provide world class facilities for dancers and the community, which include:
CV worked closely with Hansen Yuncken on the refurbishment project to deliver a turnkey package for the electrical connection (Large Customer Connection or LCC) works.
To deliver the power to the existing heritage building as well as the multi-level expansion’s additional infrastructure, the CV team progressed the design and installation of an Energex indoor substation.
The team also installed the electromagnetic frequency (EMF) shielding, all doors for the substation, and civil conduits along Drake St, Montague Rd and Raven St. Throughout the job, CV worked closely with Energex to ensure project timelines were met.
During the initial stages of the project, a high level of coordination was required between CV and Energex to incorporate the design works for the Thomas Dixon Centre with five other Energex projects occurring in the area.
CV achieved approval from Energex for the construction of the physical substation on the first inspection, which is a testament to the team’s capability and experience. Delivering this major milestone for the project enabled the installation of the electrical equipment to expedite the power on site.
The CV team was proud to work with Hansen Yuncken on the transformation of the Thomas Dixon Centre in making the Queensland Ballet’s vision for the future a reality. We look forward to seeing this iconic centre continue to be a community staple for many years to come.
