Lendlease Construction Update: December 2021

2021 has been a huge year of progress for the New Performing Arts Venue (NPAV) project. In December 2020, Lendlease completed the enabling and earth works components, and now a year later the new theatre is starting to take shape following two large concrete pours to form the first concrete slabs of the new theatre auditorium.

Activities during the Christmas break

The construction team will take a break during the Christmas period with no construction activity on site from Monday 20 December 2021 to Tuesday 4 January 2022. Security will monitor the site during this time, and all machinery and equipment will be fully and safely secured.

Lookahead to 2022

We will continue to progress the theatre structure during 2022, including concrete, structural steel and precast elements, in addition to services, façade and theatre fit-out commencing.
