Project Overview

Designed by leading architects Ashton Raggatt McDougall, and constructed by Bovis Lend Lease, the MRC/MTC Complex features a 500 seat theatre and the 1000 seat Dame Elizabeth Murdoch Recital Hall, and is one of the world’s leading venues for chamber music.

Due to its busy St Kilda Road location, which is subject to significant low frequency noise, shock and vibration energy from passing trams and traffic, the venue had to be completely isolated to ensure a world class acoustical standard. To meet this demanding specification, Embelton engineered, designed and manufactured 54 high load capacity springs upon which the entire auditorium is floated, preventing any noise from entering the auditorium.
Embelton also designed and supplied wall, ceiling, lift and mechanical services isolation ensuring a single point of responsibility for all key vibration control requirements.
