Peter McCracken, Industry Adviser – Industry Capability Network (ICN) Victoria

As Industry Adviser for the Industry Capability Network (ICN) Victoria, Peter McCracken is responsible for facilitating the Local Jobs First policy for the Geelong Arts Centre Little Malop Street Redevelopment project supporting awarded contractors to realise the various deliverables around import replacement, localisation, activating supply chain, and jobs creation to help locals win.

“The Geelong Arts Centre Little Malop Street Redevelopment is such a welcome project to our region. The entire venue provides amazing spaces for performance, expression, and socialising.”

When asked about his favourite element of the Geelong Arts Centre Little Malop Street design, Peter’s advice was to look out for the bespoke Viridian glass featured in the curtainwall windows.

“This local Geelong business supplied Geelong Arts Centre with 220 panels of specially designed PerformaTech; a high performance glass allowing in increased levels of natural light without emitting radiant heat.”

The installation of such a glass will maximise daylight and energy efficiency for Geelong Arts Centre.

As a long-term Geelong resident, Peter says he has found it a great privilege to work in assisting a project that will deliver not only jobs, but also community engagement for Geelong.

“The new Geelong Arts Centre is just the start of the great revitalisation we are seeing in Geelong, and I can’t wait to see it opened.”

The Geelong Arts Centre Little Malop Street Redevelopment is backed with a $140 million investment from the Victorian Government.
