Probuild is pleased to be constructing the $300 million expansion of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) and broader South Wharf precinct.
The 20,000m2 MCEC expansion will integrate with the existing spaces and includes an additional 9,000m2 of flexible expansion space. A multi-purpose space will have retractable seating for up to 1,100 people; service pods, meeting rooms and informal meeting spaces. There will also be a large concourse and a banquet room with capacity to cater for up to 450 people.
The construction of a 331-room hotel adds a new tier of accommodation to the precinct, complementing the existing Hilton South Wharf hotel. The expansion also includes a 1,150-space, multi-storey car park and a concourse and pedestrian bridge linking the precinct with South Melbourne and the Yarra River.
