Civic cen­tre still two months away

Warwick Daily News - - NEWS -

THE Stan­thorpe Civic Cen­tre re­open­ing date has been de­layed by two months.

The build­ing has been closed since March 2016 when a fire gut­ted its kitchen. It’s now ex­pected to be opened in March this year, rather than Jan­uary.

South­ern Downs Re­gional Coun­cil man­ager of com­mu­nity ser­vices and ma­jor projects Michael Bell said progress was de­layed due to con­struc­tion firms and sup­pli­ers clos­ing dur­ing the hol­i­day pe­riod.

“With the ex­tent of the dam­age be­ing greater than ini­tially an­tic­i­pated, this has caused a few headaches, as the pro­gram has had to be ad­justed to take into con­sid­er­a­tion the sourc­ing of spe­cialised stage ma­te­ri­als, air-con­di­tion­ing equip­ment and the re­con­fig­u­ra­tion of some el­e­ments of the de­sign,” he said.
