Around WGAC in 254 Days - here's a montage of the progress that's taken place over the last 8 months on the WGAC Redevelopment Project. From the first drone flight to today's pouring of the slab on the first floor of the new northern foyer. Perfect weather for a slab, don't you think? Enjoy!

Redevelopment Project Update 14-02-18

A very special moment in the WGAC redevelopment process: A group of stakeholders attend a ceremony during which the last Golden Nut and Bolt are fixed to the massive steel beam of the balcony section. Baw Baw Shire Mayor Joe Gauci attends this milestone event along with the Friends of the Arts Centre as they place the last bolt into the join and sign the steel beam. We also include some fascinating time-lapse footage of the beam being constructed and lifted in to place.

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!

Redevelopment Project Update 12-12-17

Just a quick fly around this week for the WGAC Upgrade Project video, with some pointers on the latest external work that's been done over the last few weeks. The rain has done its best to force everyone inside, but as soon as its stops the crew are back outside again doing great work. And if the music doesn't get you bopping along, we'll have to try out a polka or two!
