Colac Central Reserve’s new pavilion is taking shape and contractors are set to pour the grandstand’s new concrete slab next week as part of the sports centre’s redevelopment.
Colac Otway Shire Council’s infrastructure general manager Ingrid Bishop said she expected work to start again on the redevelopment on Monday, “with worker numbers to increase to normal the following week as the trades come back from their Christmas-New Year break”.
“Special order glass is scheduled to be installed by the end of January, and the balance of external cladding is expected to be completed in January,” Ms Bishop said.
“Painting will continue within the pavilion change rooms and plastering is progressing well on the first floor rooms.
“The netball extension roof was installed prior to Christmas with cladding and windows expected during January,” she said.
“The grandstand concrete slab will be poured next week all going well, once this is in place, the fit-out of the new away room layout will start.”
Colac-based Spence Construction is committed to completing the Central Reserve project by April 24 at a cost of less than $3 million.
The redevelopment will include a new pavilion, netball change rooms with toilets, showers and storage space, and the grandstand refurbishment.
