Full Project Management and Contract Administration
Fully designed and documented with a fixed lump sum contract.
A technically challenging Project with a limited budget; the existing stage located on level one is not sized appropriately for school performances nor does it have the back of house ancillary spaces required for performances. The solution proposes a new build element to be annexed to the back of the existing structure.
With upgrades also required to meet current BCA regulations, DDA requirements and to improve visitor comfort, the scope of the works is requiring a priority list to be established as the Budget will not cover all items.
Over-arching are the requirements of Heritage Victoria who confirmed the required heritage works. Included in this Heritage Victoria response was the support for the new annex building.
The Project is now into construction with a completion date in mid-2018 forecast.
