Contracted awarded for entertainment centre roof


The WA Government has awarded the contract for important roof and façade repairs at the iconic Albany Entertainment Centre to Colab Construction.

The $650,000 contract will pay for works to ensure the roof and façade are secure at the Great Southern venue, which sits within a harsh ocean-front environment.

It comes after an engineering report in late 2023 recommended improvements to prevent the roof deteriorating. The $20.7 million upgrades are being funded by the Government’s Asset Maintenance Fund.

“Colab Construction is a leading commercial builder in our Great Southern region and the founder has three decades of experience, as well as an experienced team,” said Acting Culture and the Arts Minister, Hannah Beazley.

“They’ve done a lot of work for State Government previously and I’m looking forward to them completing these important roof repair works at our iconic Albany Entertainment Centre.”

The roof and façade remediation works are scheduled for completion in mid-2024. Other stages of the project to upgrade Albany Entertainment Centre will follow.

Colab Constructions was awarded the Department of Finance award for best regional contractor in 2023 and best Aboriginal contractor in 2022.
