ASTUTE BUILDS THE ULTIMATE BLANK CANVAS

DEVELOPMENT of the largest sound stage in the southern hemisphere has won Astute Projects the award for Industrial Building Over $5 million.

Measuring 80m by 47m, Sound Stage 9 has an overall surface area of 3716m2. It has a dual role, not only as the filming location of Hollywood films, but as a sports venue in the upcoming Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018).

Sound Stage 9 will play host to stars such as Chris Hemsworth, as it will be used to create Asgard in the latest addition to the Marvel Thor films.

It will be the official venue for the squash competition at GC2018, as part of Village Roadshow Studios' partnership with the Queensland Government as a GC2018 venue. Table tennis and boxing competitions will also be held at the venue, alongside badminton training.

The world-class facility is fully sound proofed and equipped with air-conditioning, extraction fans, steel grids and catwalks.
