DPI Conference Centre

architectural illustrationThe Department of Primary Industry in Rockhampton required a conference centre and library. The DPI approached Project Services who in turn approached James Riddell. The main auditorium has a stage and the capacity for 400 seats. This auditorium can also be divided into 4 separate function rooms, each separately entered and serviced and acoustically isolated from each other.

architectural illustrationThe demountable walls that achieve the separation can also be randomly placed throughout the auditorium to provide backing for displays, art gallery or convention style.

Natural materials were used where possible to reflect the produce of the Primary Industries. Acoustic straw ceilings, plywood linings, ship-lapped cladding, terracotta and bricks give the building an elegant but earthy feel. The building received a regional commendation from the R.A.I.A.
