As architects for the National Exhibition Centre, our commission included the initial Master Plan for the expansion of the Centre to more than double its original size. Four separate phases were planned, linking physically and seamlessly to the original Centre.
Phase One: Halls 6-8, increased the Centres capacity by 20,000m2 (included the atrium with associated restaurants, bars and ancillary facilities).
Phase Two: Halls 9, 10, 11 and 12, increased capacity by 30,000m2 of exhibition space and again provided all support for the new halls.
Phase Three: Halls 17 to 20 added yet a further 30,000m2 of exhibition space and associated facilities.
Phase Four: Visitor Improvement Programme to refurbish the original piazza area.
