December Refurbishment Update

Rob Spurway December 27, 2020 Leave a reply

We are writing to update you on the progress being made with the refurbishment of the Arts Centre.

The Sub-Committee has continued to meet fortnightly with Colin, Geoff and Rob monitoring progress on a weekly basis. The project has made significant progress to date but though we planned to complete the work by the end of September, due to the ever-changing issues with the pandemic, we hope to have all major works completed by the end of January with some finishing touches carried out in February.  

Currently we are undertaking the following;

  • New boiler installed 
  • Utility room installed in the shower room
  • Complete rewire of hall electrics
  • Technical gallery construction completed
  • New heater units have been installed (replacing old radiators in the hall)
  • Toilet washing facilities have been upgraded (Non-touch taps and soap dispensers) 

Work will shortly start on the following: 

  • Deconstruct and construct a new porch
  • Install mirrors
  • Decorate interior and exterior  
  • Install roller shutter doors 
  • Install new stage

We are pleased to report that although we have been delayed, the Sub-committee are confident that we will be able to keep to the budget set by the Management Committee. We would like to thank our contractors who have been working throughout in difficult circumstances.

Stay safe and we wish you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and hopefully we can be together at the Arts Centre soon. 

Yours Sincerely 

Arts Centre Refurbishment Sub Committee 

On behalf of the Wellington Arts Association Management Committee

Light It In Red

Although the Arts Centre is in refurbishment we bathed the building in red to show our support for the 1,000,000 jobs at risk.

Wellington Arts Associations stands with you.

Throwback Thursday

This week, we shine the light on those who are normally shining a light on everyone performing, those without whom we would be in the dark…literally.

It takes hours sometimes days to produce some of the great lighting effects you see at the Arts Centre and the Wellesley. Teams consist of riggers, programmers, designers, operators, technicians who make, solder components and maintain the lanterns. There have been many people take up these roles over the years and we say thank you to you all!
