FDC (WA) has recently completed the fitout of Australian Radio Network (ARN) – 96fm -Studios, 169 Hay Street, Perth.
96FM is a commercial FM radio station broadcasting in Perth, Western Australia and is owned by the Australian Radio Network. The station, formerly owned by Fairfax Media, transferred ownership to Australian Radio Network in March 2015.
The 400sqm project was delivered within 17 weeks and involved the conversion of existing office space into new radio studios for ARN, and refurbishment of existing office and breakout spaces for the 96fm staff. The scope included highly specified acoustic products, in particular the sound room and studio doors.
The conversion was executed whilst the studio was still in operation, providing the team with challenges in noise restrictions and also site access / safety for contractors and studio staff.
The project was delivered on time, within budget and with a solid relationship forged between FDC, ARN and the building owners.
