In 1985, 6PR relocated to its current premises at 169 Hay Street. Although still functioning successfully, the studios welcomed a technology and studio refresh.
Ensuring full functionality of the 24/7 broadcast, the scope of works entailed building brand new broadcasting studios, demolition of old studios, new high tech IT server and recording rooms, staff amenities, office space and atrium courtyard.
The project was programmed and built around the two existing broadcast studios. It was imperative that the studios were not disrupted and kept operational throughout the works. To achieve this, all noisy tasks were undertaken during songs, advertisements and news breaks.
The new state of the art studio was delivered seamlessly and exceeded 6PR’s expectations. Byte Construct successfully achieved the original completion date, whilst delivering numerous variation works and maintaining zero work-related incidents.
