New Adelphi is a landmark building providing the focus for arts and culture on campus. The space has been carefully designed to inspire and motivate; housing the music, performance, art, design and architecture students and providing a rich environment to stimulate curious minds.
This new build features a 350 capacity theatre, a 140sqm studio theatre, 2 large TV acting studios, 6 industry standard recording studios, music ensemble rooms, 2 dance studios, a 100sqm band-room / live room, as well as a suite of flexible performance, studio and rehearsal spaces.
Above the auditorium is a tension wire grid linked to gantries that run around the stage, all equipped with a comprehensive installation of facility panels and production lighting boxes fed from both dimmed and hard powered supplies. Over the stage there are eight pile-wind motorised bars for lighting fixtures and the projection screen and also an additional twelve hemp sets.
The studio theatre and two TV acting studios are equipped with internally wired lighting grids fed from dimmed and hard powered supplies. Facility panels all around the studios at low and high level allow for easy connection of equipment.
The theatre and studio spaces are equipped with comprehensive house and working light control systems, perimeter curtain tracks and curtains, infra-red assisted listening systems as well as communication systems. The basement houses all the recording studio suites and radio studios, all of which are equipped with facility panels and talkback speakers.
All the spaces (including some of the ensemble, rehearsal and band rooms) have fibre and data connections linked back to a central patching system to allow signals to be routed around the building to meet future requirements.
