Traralgon’s community development is booming as Becon Constructions continues development on Traralgon’s new performing arts precinct, valued at $38m.
Once completed it will seat 750, house local theatre projects and will include an orchestral pit, eating and drinking facilities, dressing rooms and an outdoor forecourt.
The community will also gain a $57m Gippsland Regional Aquatic Centre (GRAC) which will feature a gymnasium, sauna, wellness centre, cafe and children play facilities with water slides.
ADCO Constructions is working to finish the project by December of this year.
These construction plans mark a significant development growth in Traralgon and will spark positive community change in the Latrobe district.
Becon is in the middle of significant work on the outdoor car park and has completed the basement car park, orchestral pit and auditorium.
Becon started development of Latrobe city's new performing arts centre in October 2019.
They aim to complete the performing art centre’s ‘fly tower’ in the next few weeks as they work closely to meet their 15-month timeline.
Latrobe city’s Mayor, Dan Clancy said that local community members have been championing this build for many years. “They are excited it's happening, it will be great to sit in one of these 750 seats to see a show on opening night," he said.
Becon has worked on an extensive range of community and education projects including;
Leongatha, Cranborne West and Rosebud’s medical centres, Sorrento’s Boat Clubhouse restaurant, Yarra Valley Grammar’s swimming pool centre, McDonalds and Woolworths franchises to name a few.
