A beautiful community atmosphere with stunning performance features is achieved on a tight budget

In a style reminiscent to the Northbridge Piazza, the Newman Town Square offers a stunning community space at the heart of Newman, Western Australia’s iron ore town in the Pilbara region.

Designed by Cameron Chisholm Nicol Architects, the Royalty for Regions-funded Town Square features an elevated outdoor LED screen, with a performing stage and a landscaped forecourt, destined to attract extraordinary live performances and community festivals. Our team was engaged to provide hydraulic, mechanical, and structural services. The design of the screen support structure was driven by the unique specifications of the AV system as well as a stringent maintenance regime. Detailed coordination was required to ensure that the ongoing maintenance costs could be kept to a minimum, particularly where skilled trades are at a premium in a regional town like Newman. Transportable units for pop-up stores and restaurants were used in lieu of a traditional in situ building, offering great opportunities to reduce construction costs.

Under tight budget constraints, the team delivered a public asset that added significant value to the regional town of Newman by beautifully integrating atmosphere with contemporary architecture.
