PACE Façade Replacement

Some disruption to the Pharmacy Australia Centre of Excellence (PACE) Building 870 for the Façade Replacement Project will continue as the contractor progresses with the replacement of the noncompliant combustible cladding scope of work. These works will cause some intermittent noise and there will be some exclusion zones to footpaths, roads and work zones during these works, managed by the Contractor.
