Revitalising the Admin Building Exterior

Published on Thursday, 14 October 2021 at 2:00:00 PM

Shire Admin Building

Yes, we know it is has been a long time coming but we are delighted to advise that the historic Shire Administration Building will be getting a face lift.  The exterior painting will be the first ‘touch up’ in 30 years.

The building was formally the site of the former Mechanics Institute (1879), former Bridgetown State School (1870-1914) and the Shire Library! The architecture is considered to be Inter-War design, which combines Contemporary and Art Deco style.

Weather might impact our timeline, however we are hoping works will start the week of 18 October and then finish mid-November. During this time we may have scaffolding in place and minor (temporary) changes to the access of the Shire Administration building.  Footpaths around the building may also be (temporarily) closed at different times.  Signage will be in place to ensure you know how to navigate around the building and find your way inside if you need to access our services during the works.
