In light of redevelopment at Adelaide Convention Centre, new and existing facilities have been brought to life with an interactive tool for planning, presentation and collaboration that allows users to navigate and visualize all three levels of the Centre.
An interactive floor plan map allows users to quickly identify information such as floor level descriptions, images, space configurations, individual meeting room capacities and set ups.
The project began in 2011, with the first stage expanding the existing facility westward over the railway lines to link with Morphett Street bridge. Stage two of the redevelopment will replace the existing Plenary Building with a multi-purpose, state-of-the-art facility with plenary capacity of up to 3,500 seats, and is scheduled for completion in 2017.
With the opening of the west building, WiFi technology will improve speed and offer up to 12,000 connections for delegates. The center’s team can also create zoned Internet cafes and private hot spots.
The design is inspired by the South Australian landscape and was put forward by Adelaide-based international architectural firm Woods Bagot in association with London-based international architect and Vx3 founder Larry Oltmanns.
The Riverbank Precinct is rapidly evolving to create a new hub for Adelaide which incorporates new research, health and medical centers, educational institutions, sport, entertainment, convention and event facilities.
