A New Era for the Sutherland Entertainment Centre 

The Sutherland Shire’s principal performing arts venue, the Sutherland Entertainment Centre, is now open after its reconstruction. It officially opened its doors early March 2023 as The Pavilion Performing Arts Centre Sutherland, though performances and production began in the venue in late January with the 2023 Sydney Festival.

The purpose of the reconstruction was aimed at transforming the existing venue into a more modern and multi-purpose cultural and entertainment hub. The redevelopment included upgrades to the auditorium, backstage facilities, and public amenities, expansion of the foyer, as well as improving the surrounding public domain space. The redevelopment has increased the capacity and functionality of the centre, allowing it to host a wider range of events and activities, including concerts, theatre productions, conferences, and community events.

JN have been super excited by this project, as the Sutherland Shire is home to JN’s head office we are a stone’s throw away from the Pavilion. JN’s design work was early in the process with all Engineering Services covering Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Hydraulic, Fire and Sustainable Engineering and we have assisted the construction team through the reconstruction of the centre.  Exceptional designs of NBRS Architecture and CHROFI work within the existing structure of the iconic 40-year-old entertainment centre, re-imagining its internal and external spaces to create this now iconic space. ADCO Constructions worked tirelessly to achieve the finished project.
