Creating a world-class venue in Asia

International Convention Centre, Macau

Theatreplan is delivering theatre planning and auditorium design; BIM modelling; sound, video and lighting design; and comprehensive content distribution for this 15,000-seat arena and multi-space convention centre.



The primary vision for this highly-ambitious project is to provide a world class multi-purpose convention, conferencing, banqueting, sports, entertainment and exhibition venue. The development consists of a 15,000-seat arena; a 2000-capacity convention and exhibition hall; a 600-seat plenary theatre; and a conference centre with 26 meeting rooms with speaker preparation and support spaces.



The concept and schematic design phases were achieved within a tight schedule with the client requiring fast turnarounds.   Theatreplan used a highly efficient working method within the Revit 3D modelling software that significantly speeded up the design process, thus enabling the design team to achieve the deadlines required by the client.

Theatreplan has also provided cutting edge technology design to provide a converged network where any audio, video or data signal is instantly available across the entire development.



The project is currently undergoing detailed design and is expected to open in 2019.
