CONSTRUCTION on the $10.4 million multi-purpose centre at Armidale Secondary College is progressing quickly, with Northern Tablelands MP Adam Marshall this week joining relieving Principal Bree Harvey-Bice to inspect the enormous building’s internal works.

 

Mr Marshall said the multi-purpose centre would be the icing on the cake of the $121 million Armidale Secondary College development, providing a space, available for the community to use, which unites the performing arts and sport together under one roof.

 

“As was the case with the main Armidale Secondary College build, it has been incredible to witness the vast structure take shape rapidly over the first quarter of this year,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“As everyone can see from Kentucky Street, the multi-purpose centre’s structural steel work is complete and building is progressing on the roof re-sheeting and stormwater works.

 

“With the external walls in place, the internal electrical, hydraulic and mechanical fit-out, to accommodate performances is happening at a rapid rate.

 

“The next stage of works include external wall cladding and the sheeting of the internal walls and ceiling.

 

“Outside, the concrete pathways and sheeting to the entry awning will be put down in coming months.

 

“I congratulate the contractors who have continued to chip-away at the project despite the incredible amount of wet weather we have experienced.

 

“If the current rate of progress continues construction should be complete by the middle of the year, with the building’s fit-out to follow shortly after.

 

“The school community will be chomping at the bit to have the new hall open and offering somewhere to celebrate the student body’s successes throughout the year.”

 

The multi-purpose hall will include generous hall space, stage and seating for performances and school functions, green room, two indoor basketball courts, a fitness and movement studio and two general learning spaces. It will be capable of comfortably seating almost 2,000 people.
