Lecture Theatre Upgrades, University of Auckland
This upgrade of lecture theatre BLT 100 in the Biology Building of the University of Auckland was undertaken as part of a campus-wide upgrade of lecture theatres. The fundamental design requirement was to ensure that every student to easily hear and see everything presented in a high-quality environment.
To be able to achieve this, a number of services were integrated to provide a state-of-the-art learning environment. These included architectural, audiovisual and lighting services.
This particular theatre is located within a heritage building and it was therefore necessary to carefully retain and emphasize some existing whilst not compromising any of the functional lighting design requirements.
This project received an Award of Commendation in the Illuminating Engineering Society of Australia and New Zealand Lighting Awards in 2009.
