Multi-purpose build­ing changes the land­scape

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE IM­POS­ING shape of a new multi-purpose fa­cil­ity at the for­mer show­grounds site is rapidly emerg­ing.

Mayor Jack Dempsey said it was an ex­cit­ing time for the Bund­aberg re­gion with a num­ber of sig­nif­i­cant projects com­ing to fruition.

“Build­ings like the multi-use fa­cil­ity are cer­tainly chang­ing the land­scape across the re­gion,” Cr Dempsey said.

“It is this type of in­vest­ment, not only from coun­cil but the wider busi­ness com­mu­nity as well, that will drive pos­i­tive eco­nomic change for the Bund­aberg re­gion.

“The multi-use fa­cil­ity now has all ex­te­rior walls in place, the car park area con­struc­tion is under way and the ma­jor­ity of the roof sheet­ing has been in­stalled, al­low­ing for the in­ter­nal fit-out to com­mence.

“Passers-by will have no­ticed the ex­te­rior walls go­ing up and I can con­firm that work is pro­gress­ing just as steadily out of sight with the sports court area, gym­na­sium and func­tion room well under way.

Tourism and Re­gional Growth port­fo­lio spokesper­son Cr Greg Barnes said con­struc­tion had in progress since February.

“This pro­ject will in­ject mil­lions of dol­lars into the lo­cal econ­omy through the use of lo­cal con­trac­tors and sup­pli­ers,” Cr Barnes said.

“Not only will the multi-purpose fa­cil­ity cater to a va­ri­ety of sport­ing and com­mu­nity uses, it will house the PCYC and act as an evac­u­a­tion centre in times of emer­gency.

“Work on the fa­cil­ity is tar­geted to be com­plete by the end of the year, weather per­mit­ting.”

Res­i­dents can keep up-to-date with the progress of the pro­ject on the coun­cil web­site at www.bund­aberg.qld.gov.au and find the New Multi-use Sports and Com­mu­nity Centre tab under De­vel­op­ment and Ma­jor Projects.

This pro­ject has been made pos­si­ble thanks to part­ner fund­ing from the Queens­land Govern­ment through the Build­ing our Re­gions pro­gram.
