The P.A. People deliver venue engineering for new $24mil Theatre project for Trinity College SA.

Head of Venue Engineering for The P.A. People, Peter Grisard, is delighted that The P.A. People could assist in delivering an outstanding project outcome. ‘We engaged with Mossop Constructions from the outset to design and deliver the key staging elements including motorised hoisting, massive hinged acoustic panels, motorised overhead acoustic reflectors and a motorised stage platform. The functionality of the staging systems and equipment allows the venue to be quickly transformed into either a concert hall or into a theatre. A high-quality outcome for which the College, the builder and the theatre consultants should be congratulated.’

Trinity College Theatre

Project lead builder, Mossop Construction and Interiors describe the project facilities as outstanding learning spaces – accommodating various educational and community uses such as music, drama, dance, oratory performances, assemblies, information events, social functions, meetings and exhibitions. Mossop describes itself as a proud South Australian family business, employing 160+ local and regional based staff, and proudly provides jobs to hundreds more local subcontractors and suppliers.’

Completed in December 2023, the $24mil, 14-month project included the construction of a 520-seat auditorium with raked seating, the acoustic treatment of the auditorium walls and a stage performance area with a fly tower.

The venue also comprises a multi-purpose foyer, front of house and gallery spaces, recording studio, green room, control room, staff offices, multimedia sound production spaces, sound recording room and a rehearsal room – all designed with suitable acoustic treatment.
