The Nine Network in Adelaide will relocate to its new CBD studio and offices at 169 Pirie Street, Adelaide on Monday, September 21.
In a first for Adelaide, the Hindmarsh Square building includes a street-level, glass-fronted studio allowing the public to engage with Nine News and see the studio in operation – an initiative that no other news service in Australia, outside of Sydney, can match.
Nine Adelaide’s managing director Sean O’Brien said today: “These new premises are a game-changer for Nine and provide the opportunity for our business to be the pre-eminent media brand in the heart of
“It has been a complex project with more than 27,000 man-hours behind it that has involved extending the building facade, the installation of more than 100 kilometres of cables, upgrading the power supply, a new data centre linking Nine News to the world, new signage, studio, and modern facilities for all employees.
“We have also procured new technology including robotic studio and remote fixed cameras using Telemetrics Inc. technology.
“To say we are excited about our new home is an understatement. With our ratings position stronger than ever we are now equipped to set the benchmark with technology, community engagement and innovation.”
As well as the ground floor studio, the refurbishment includes a technologically advanced newsroom on Level 1, a new reception, boardroom and office space on Level 2.
Colliers International’s Project Services team delivered the multi-million dollar project for Nine, using Australasian Property Developments and F&E Rocca Builders and Contractors to complete the demolition and structural works for the refurbishment. Sarah Constructions completed the fitout and the design was led by South Australian company Capsule Projects. The project was supported by engineers Norman Disney & Young and cost planners Rider Levett Bucknall.
The building will be officially opened with a star-studded launch on Thursday, October 8.
