Redevelopment Project Update 18-01-17
You may have heard this week that the completion of West Gippsland Art Centre Redevelopment Project has been delayed. We know you will appreciate that a project of this size and scope requires that the standards to which the works are completed are extremely high, and to that end we are committed to ensuring the project delivers a a result that will continue to serve you and our community for many years to come.
While we are disappointed that these unavoidable delays have occurred, Baw Baw Shire Council, the team at WGAC, our architects and engineers, and all of the people working to bring the redevelopment to completion are working hard to keep this exciting project moving ahead.
We are working with stakeholders, customers, and patrons who have been affected by the delays, and are doing our best to make sure that their impacts are minimised for all. As always, our priorities lie with the community who have been such a large part of WGAC's history.
We are confident that the end result will be worth the wait!
As we examine the project's ongoing status and work to minimise the impacts of the delays, and as more information comes to light, we will continue to keep you updated via social media and our website. Our Redevelopment Project page at www.wgac.com.au, has detailed information about the project, including our awesome project update videos, giving you detailed insights into the amazing changes that have been taking place.
The particulars of the delays, with a statement by Mayor of Baw Baw Shire Joe Gauci, are outlined in a news item that can be read at Baw Baw Shire Council's website here: http://www.bawbawshire.vic.gov.au/Latest-News/West-Gippsland-Arts-Centre-Update
Redevelopment Project Update 25-01-17
A mesmerising time-lapse video showing a single day's work on the WGAC Redevelopment. This video also marks a milestone as the large steel beams are lifted onto the work platform inside the theater itself. These beams will form the front support for the new balcony, and will be bolted into place in early February (stay tuned for that milestone event!). During the time-lapse you will also see the construction of the framework for the two new foyer levels above the old Parkview Room. They will provide access to the balcony and offer some amazing views across the region!
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube... this is where it all happens!.
