New events cen­tre nears com­ple­tion

Alpine Observer - - Front Page - By JUSTIN JENVEY

PROGRESS is con­tin­u­ing on the new Alpine Events Cen­tre at Bright’s Pi­o­neer Park.

Con­struc­tion of the mul­ti­pur­pose fa­cil­ity is ex­pected to be com­pleted as early as late July.

With that the case the United Bright Foot­ball Net­ball Club could have use of the fa­cil­ity for one of its fi­nal two home games on July 28 or Au­gust 11.

Alpine Shire Coun­cil direc­tor as­sets Will Jeremy said most of work left was in­side the build­ing.

“The builder is busily work­ing away on the up­per level and it’s start­ing to take shape now,” he said.

“We’re still hope­fully of a com­ple­tion to­wards the end of July or early Au­gust but the last five per cent of the project al­ways takes the long­est.

“Once the builders are fin­ished there are some things that will be fin­ished off by coun­cil, in­clud­ing com­po­nents in the kitchen and fur­ni­ture.

“We’re well into the process of work­ing those things out at the mo­ment.”

The pavil­ion will be ca­pa­ble of host­ing 200 plus peo­ple for events and func­tions and in­cludes a com­mer­cial kitchen, bar, meet­ing and stor­age rooms and toi­lets.

The se­nior and ju­nior foot­ball clubs have had use of the change rooms on the lower level since Easter.

The en­tire Alpine Events Park project is on track to be de­liv­ered by June 30 next year.
