Probuild have constructed a $300 million expansion of Melbourne’s Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), incorporating a hotel and multi-storey car park to the existing facilities.
The 20,000m2 MCEC expansion integrates the existing spaces and includes an additional 9,000m2 of flexible expansion space. A multi-purpose space will have retractable seating for up to 1,100 people, service pods, meeting rooms and informal meeting spaces. There will also be a large concourse and a banquet room with capacity to cater for up to 450 people.
The 331-room hotel adds a new tier of accommodation to the precinct, complementing the existing Hilton South Wharf hotel.
Mirage Doors were contracted to supply and install four large 6.0M x 6.5M Bifold counter weight doors, and 8 smaller 3M x 3M Bifold doors. These doors were insulated and fully clad, with double side and bottom seals to minimise noise transfer.
