Ian Potter Conservatory – Progress Update
10 August 2022
The large concrete beams supporting the upper glass cube are being formed, with angled faces and an integrated box gutter as well as cast-in conduits for lights, power and audio. Special glass blocks made in the Czech Republic have arrived and a mock-up of the glass block wall is in progress for testing and evaluation, prior to proceeding to full scale installation.
The unique site has required special consideration of the flora and fauna in the area, which occasionally leads to animal relocations including the recent rescue of four juvenile water dragons, found nesting under stockpiled materials.
