Works due to start 30 April
Construction works for Margaret River HEART project imminent
Fencing will go up around the Margaret River Cultural Centre on Monday 30 April 2018 to prepare for the commencement of redevelopment works in early May.
BCG Construction was selected as the preferred tender for the project with the company to complete the upgrade in two stages.
Shire of Augusta Margaret River Corporate and Community Services Director Annie Riordan said the multipurpose function spaces and commercial kitchen would be completed by January 2019, followed by the main theatre and foyer area in June 2019.
“I’m very happy to see the project start to materialise on the ground,” she said.
“There’s been an enormous amount of planning and legwork to get to this stage.
“I can imagine the community would be also be excited to see some construction activity get underway at the site.”
The new centre, dubbed the Margaret River Hub of Entertainment Arts and Regional Tourism (HEART), will create a multi-purpose, highly flexible entertainment and business events complex which both meets the needs of the current population and caters for projected population and visitor growth.
