Electrocom Solutions is pleased to announce that it has been awarded the electrical contract to build a contemporary Australian Art Museum which will operate in conjunction with the Melbourne University’s Ian Potter Museum of Art.
In one of the most significant acts of arts philanthropy to an Australian University, property developer and passionate art collector, Michael Buxton, has donated his private contemporary Australian art collection to the University of Melbourne.
The new purpose built Art Museum will house and showcase the Michael Buxton Collection to students, researchers and the general public.
In constructing the museum, Electrocom will provide the entire communications, power and high end lighting systems to refurbish and extend the former heritage listed Victoria Police Stores. Originally built in 1912 as part of the Victorian Police Depot, the building is home to the Faculty of Victorian College of the Arts and the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (VCA & MCM).
Buxton Contemporary will be central to the Melbourne Art Precinct – located on the corner of Southbank Boulevard and Dodds Street at the University’s Southbank Campus.
We look forward to working with Maben and The University of Melbourne to deliver leading edge technology for the new Art Museum.
