Project Description

The Royal Exhibition Building is a Great Hall once housing a 19th-century international exhibition and is still used for exhibitions. As part of its 2012/13 Budget, the Federal Government committed $20 million towards the protection and promotion of this UNESCO World Heritage-listed building. These funds provide an opportunity to restore integral aspects of the fabric of the building, preserving its world and national heritage values. The scope of works will encompass: dome repairs (including cupolas); repair and repainting of the building joinery (mainly external); restoration of the facades (including render repairs and repainting) and upgrade of the Dome Promenade.
