Exterior makeover in play at The Events Centre, Caloundra
May 25, 2017

The Sunshine Coast’s premier performing arts and conference centre, The Events Centre in Caloundra is having a facelift, with extensive exterior improvements due to be completed in June.

The Events Centre Chairman Tim Dwyer said the project will transform the appearance of the centre, commenting "iIn addition to rendering and painting the brickwork, we are improving the existing Perspex elements on the clock tower with a new glass roof and new glass clock.

“This project will not only address exterior maintenance requirements, including repairing deteriorating mortar joints, but will present the building with an attractive modern façade.

“The Events Centre is one of the Sunshine Coast’s largest venues and it welcomes national and international performing artists.”

The venue will also host The Australian Events Awards in September this year.

Dwyer, who is also a Sunshine Coast Councillor, added “it’s important that a major civic venue of this stature has a look to match and this project, funded through council’s Capital Works Program, will achieve that."
