Presentation Pavilion Project
Australian Government Building Better Regions Fund
The new Presentation Pavilion at the Riverland Exhibition Centre [Field Days site] is well underway with the pouring of the concrete floor last week.
The building structure has been completed and the internal building work is now being undertaken.
The project is part funded by an Australian Government grant of $405,000.00 through the Building Better Regions Fund. The total project cost is $850,000.00.
This is a unique project which will leverage the existing Riverland Exhibition Centre to attract new events to the region.
The Presentation Pavilion will provide an air conditioned and acoustically finished auditorium for meetings, conventions, product launches, machinery displays, festivals and concerts, anniversaries and celebrations.
A commercial kitchen will support catering for events, cooking demonstrations, product value adding, and community social interaction around cooking.
The project funding completion date is 30th June 2018 and construction is on track to achieve that.
The Presentation Pavilion together with the extensive existing Riverland Exhibition Centre grounds and facilities will contribute significantly to growth of the region by bringing new wealth and creating jobs.
