Builder: Kane Constructions
Cost: $38.5 million
The construction of a new building at Ryrie Street is the second stage of the Geelong Arts Centre redevelopment. This stage involved:
- Demolishing the Band of Hope and Mechanics Institute Building
- exposing the former church building’s facade
- building a new double-height foyer. This connects with the Playhouse theatre
The building was opened in late 2019.
I got photo at different stages of the construction process in 2018 and 2019. I didn’t get any photos of the demolition of the previous buildings.
