International Convention Centre Sydney

International Convention Centre Sydney

Project International Convention Centre Sydney 
Size  ~35,000 sq m
Location Darling Harbour, Sydney
Project finish December 2016
Value $1.5b.

Containing over 70 meeting rooms, three theatres and two formal ballrooms, The International Convention Centre Sydney is the country’s first fully Integrated Convention, Exhibition and Entertainment centre.

With a critical project timeline and need for a high performance acoustic roof system, Durra Panel and Durra Steel Sections were selected to cover each of the building envelopes to control break-out noise and noise intrusion. A simple dual-layered panelised system was assembled in large modules safely on the ground and once completed, was crane hoisted using the Durra Lifting Frame and placed onto the roof structure, ensuring fast coverage while minimising risks associated with working at heights.

The ICC Sydney adds to the extensive list of Convention and Exhibition Centres Ortech Industries has had the privilege of supplying to, including:

  • Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre and its eventual expansion (Ongoing)
  • Adelaide, Darwin, Brisbane and Gold Coast Convention Centres.

RAC Arena

Project RAC Arena 
Size 27,000 sq m
Location Perth CBD
Project finish November 2012
Value $550m.


A world class, indoor, multi-purpose, all weather venue that caters for sports and entertainment, RAC Arena is a cutting edge challenging design, that required the highest levels of acoustic performance.

The combination of Durra Panel, Durra Soundsorb Cassettes and Durra Steel Sections were specified for the project due to the safe, cost-effective method of ground based panelized installation using the Ortech Lifting Frame. Incorporating a dual-layered system in the roof structure as well as layers in the walls and underneath the seating, Ortech was able to achieve one of our most high-performance systems to date.

RAC Arena provides a visually striking addition to the city skyline and is another proud example of Ortech’s commitment to high-performance, acoustic solutions in some of Australia’s most renowned sporting venues such as:

  • Margaret Court Arena
  • Queensland State Tennis Centre
  • Brisbane Entertainment Centre
