Second storey caps off hall

Bendigo Weekly | Bendigo Weekly | 27-Sep-2017


IT takes an awful lot of concrete in a major build, but the RSL Memorial Hall has topped off its extension in epic style with the second level slab now complete.

The $4.5 million redevelopment is under construction, with the 1919 building undergoing a full restoration.

Scaffolding has been erected around the building and exterior restoration works are under way.

The exterior restoration works include a total roof replacement, installation of new sky lights, external render repairs and a new exterior wash coat to replicate the original warm stone-coloured finish.

Other restoration works will include restumping and installation of new flooring in the old billiard room as well as ceiling and plaster repairs and painting.

The two-storey extension will house a new exhibition space with climate controls capable of hosting touring exhibitions from the War Memorial in Canberra on the ground floor level, with storage and preparation areas located on the second storey.
