Red Earth Arts project takes shape
The recently named Red Earth Arts Precinct was the location for a funding partner event last week when a range of representatives from our generous supporters came to tour the facility.
The Red Earth Arts Precinct is now in week 20 of an 80-week construction period and the project is running on time and on budget.
As of the end of December, 22, 500 man hours had been spent on the project, and 20 per cent of all contract values awarded so far had gone to local businesses.
We are always looking to work with local contractors on this build whenever possible.
Looking over the site now, the concrete works at ground level are 90 per cent complete and the above-ground concrete structures, the stair and lift wells and the massive fly tower are highly visible.
In-ground services such as power, water and drainage are at 85 per cent complete.
The steel framing for the building began going up on February 2.
You will soon notice the building start to take shape and begin to mirror those plans from our drawings and video renderings.
The stage area (fly tower) is at the south or hills end of the site and is now two-thirds of the height.
Once complete, this high end of the building will be 24m tall.
To put that in perspective, Pelago is 31m tall and The Quarter is 15m tall. This is a large, impressive structure.
The City would like to thank the State Government’s Royalties for Regions, the Federal Government, the Woodside-operated North West Shelf Project, Rio Tinto, and Lotterywest for their support of this amazing development.
