New mall stage is taking shape

Armidale Regional Council

The construction of the new mall stage is progressing well despite some delays due to poor weather.

Local contractors Wallace Construction and subcontractor Dillion’s Concrete and Earthworks have taken every opportunity to push ahead with demolition and foundation works even though several unexpected delays have caused them to be 1-2 weeks behind schedule. We are expecting the stage base will be completed by Christmas -weather permitting.

Unfortunately, circumstances outside of Council’s control has seen the sound shell/roof design and fabrication process been prolonged. The sound shell/roof is now expected to be installed closer to March allowing the stage to be used for public performances.

Thank you for bearing with us as we work through some unexpected issues that have held up the construction of the new stage. We would have loved to unveil the new stage for Christmas celebrations but it wasn’t to be. Like many of you completing your own construction projects the weather and the huge demands on the construction industry at the moment have delayed the project.
