Architect to take on town’s biggest revamp of 2017

MORE than 20 architects explored the Somerset region this month to learn more before one of them takes on one of the biggest projects of their career.

The Architects Small Practice Group (ASPG) toured the Somerset region last week visiting sites of architectural significance including the Fernvale Indoor Sports Centre, Esk Library, the Esk Animal Shelter and the award winning Somerset Regional Art Gallery - The Condensery.

Architect Graham Richardson, an ASPG member, will take on the redevelopment of the Lowood Library and Customer Service Centre.

And it's not his first big project in the region.

The experienced architect was contracted by council to design a number of the Somerset's iconic facilities including the Fernvale Futures Complex, Fernvale Sports Park, Kilcoy Information Centre, Esk Library and the Esk Animal Shelter.

Mayor Graeme Lehmann said council was delighted the Architects Small Practice Group had chosen Somerset for their end of year tour.

"We are so pleased they took the time to explore our award winning art gallery at Toogoolawah as well as various other sites in Somerset," he said.

The ASPG has more than 80 members across Queensland since the group formed in 1985.

Work on the revamped Lowood Library and Customer Service Centre will start in early 2017.
