Civic Centre Repair and Refurbishment

The Civic Centre is a vital piece of community infrastructure that provides a place for our community to meet in formal and informal settings.

The building located at 68 Elizabeth Street in Moss Vale, includes the Council Chambers, Moss Vale Branch Library and a range of civic facilities and services.

The Civic Centre Repair and Refurbishment project involves repair and renewal works to the existing building.

The building was originally built in 1970 and extended in 1997. Since then, only minor maintenance activities such as painting, carpet replacement and an amenities upgrade have been carried out.

Council undertook this project because the existing building had significant maintenance issues, was energy inefficient and was difficult to access. The building also did not comply with current Workplace Health and Safety Standards.

Project Update - 26 October 2021

Council has terminated the contract with Matrix Group Co. Pty Ltd for the refurbishment of the Moss Vale Civic Centre.  The decision to terminate the builder follows increased delays, performance breaches and failure on behalf of the builder to manage sub-contractors and tradespersons.

Fortunately, our contingency plans enable Council to step in and complete the remainder of the project.

The majority of remaining works are located externally and back of house and will have little impact on customers.

Notwithstanding existing contract arrangements and lead times for manufacture, Council anticipates practical completion of the project to be finalised by the end of the year.
