Melbourne Exhibition Centre Expansion

Ortech is proud to once again be involved with the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre during the final stage of their multi-million dollar expansion.

Located in the heart of South Wharf, the expansion is set to be finished mid-2018, and will see Melbourne set the benchmark for exhibition spaces nationwide.

Given it’s close proximity to major roads as well as requiring high performance acoustics within the convention areas, Durra Panel was a natural choice to help mitigate break-out noise and provide Acoustic Absorption within the ceiling envelope.

Combined with our Durra lifting frame and the fact Durra Panel is trafficable once installed, installation across the structure was practical, efficient and above all, safe.

Working closely with Probuild, the expansion has been a massive undertaking, with MCEC stating on their website: “Over 16,000 square meters of roofing panels are being erected over the new exhibition space – enough to cover 100 hockey rinks”.
