Behind the Scenes at the Roxy – 14 August 2023

Published on 14 August 2023


Council is now well underway with the Roxy build. The site office has been established and trade packages are in the process of being let.

IMG_2415_compressed.jpg Recent activities include the completion of demolition works in preparation for steel fabrication, such as in a new loading dock area located at the back of the Roxy (pictured). This is a very delicate part of the project which, upon completion, will allow the Roxy to welcome touring shows from all over the country.

Another significant development was the letting of the steel contract which was awarded to Narrandera-based Hutchins Bros this week.

Council is delighted to have them onboard to complete the complex steel construction works that are integral to strengthening the building structure for the next 100 years.

With the stage area being one of the first locations to see steel installed, specific focus will be directed at an extension of the concrete slab in front of the stage.

IMG_2424_compressed.jpg Roxy Project Director Katherine Herrmann said, “Council is well placed to complete the project. Whilst the Lloyd Group demise was unfortunate and beyond Council’s control, they provided a clean slate with latent conditions exposed. This has allowed us to sign up local trades to complete the works with confidence.”

Every fortnight Council will be sharing an update on the Roxy with site tours set to recommence as soon as it is deemed safe.
