Performing Arts Centre Roof Replacement


The current Performing Arts Centre (PAC) building in Hamilton was built in 1910.

Council undertook a condition assessment of its buildings in early 2019. The assessment found that while the main building is structurally sound and serviceable for use, the roof is in poor condition and suffering leakage issues. The report recommended the roof be replaced to maintain the structural integrity of the building.

In December 2020, Council awarded the tender contract for the Hamilton Performing Arts Centre Maintenance and Roof Replacement to BDH Construction Pty. Ltd for the value of $210,100.00 (incl. GST).

Project Details

The roof replacement will require the Hamilton PAC to remain closed until the beginning of July 2021.

As they did throughout COVID lockdown, the Hamilton PAC team have adapted well and have expertly thought outside the box to be able to continue bringing the performing arts to the Greater Hamilton community.

- The Wind in the Willows, direct from a sell-out season at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne, will take place at the Hamilton Botanic Gardens on Sat 6 February, with two shows at 10am and 6pm.
- The Merger, the stage play of comedian Damian Callinan, will show in Balmoral at the Mechanics Hall on Friday 7 May
- Comedy Festival Roadshow will perform this year in Dunkeld at the Sterling Place Community Centre on 28 May

A re-opening event is already being planned for July along with a full program of events for the second half of 2021.

Status Update:


Works have now begun on the PAC roof restoration.

Please be aware that while these important restoration works are carried out, some car parks within the Brown Street PAC car park located on the south side of the building will be impacted. This will allow for appropriate fencing and scaffolding to be installed.
