PERTH TOWN HALL

The Perth Town Hall plays a vital role in providing the community of Perth with an historic civic space. HP&A prepared a Conservation Plan in 1996 which guided the conservation works that were to follow in a staged process between 1996 and 2005.

Stage 1 works included the restoration of the undercroft and the reconstruction of the colonnade and facades. The first phase of the re-cladding the roof with Sheoak shingles was also undertaken. Internally a lift was installed and a glazed foyer within the undercroft.

Stage 2, 3 and 4 works saw the completion of the shingle roof, installation of new lighting, structural improvements and earthquake proofing, the reinstatement of the original formation of the gallery and balcony, reinstatement of the hall windows, improvements to the stage and acoustics and restoration of the clock face and tower. An interpretation strategy was implemented to document both the history and the conservation of the Perth Town Hall.

HP&A were part of a consultant team which were led by architects Cox Howlett & Bailey Woodland.
