Gathered together – Sacred Heart College Performing Arts Centre by Ebert Construction


The design for the new performance centre at Sacred Heart College had to work hard in terms of cost effectiveness, functionality and future-proofing. And the efficiency of the concept had to be matched by the skills of the constructor of the building.

Ebert Construction provides build solutions for the industrial, commercial and community sectors, says director Ron MacDonald.

"The new Sacred Heart College performing arts centre was an exciting project for us and an empowering for the school. The facility enables the whole school to celebrate as one. The older boys can be seen as role models for the juniors, strengthening the overall sense of community – a core Sacred Heart value."

The 1500-seat auditorium has steel framing with precast concrete panels and brick veneer, decorative ceiling panels and polished floors. Its refined architectural exterior is composed of a combination of brick, stone and glazed windows.

The auditorium's performance space will include a thrust stage in the future, an expansive entrance hall and multi-use courtyards. For safety reasons, the main access to the college was repositioned and a circular driveway introduced.


"As one of New Zealand's leading design-and-build contractors, Ebert Construction provides whole-of-life project resolution for all our clients – optimising design efficiency through smart building solutions," says MacDonald. EBERT CONSTRUCTION
