Kane Constructions was appointed in early 2019 under a Lump Sum contract to deliverer the new Shepparton Art Museum (SAM). Construction of the new five-storey building consisted of housing a museum, visitor centre, and the Kaiela Arts gallery and studio located in the regional city of Shepparton, Victoria.

The 5,300m2 building takes a 33m x 33m cube like form, also houses a café and event space, with a roof top viewing deck.

Four L-shaped plates, each of different heights, make up the building’s façade. Each plate is of a different metallic finish; low sheen zinc to the southern approach; matt soft charcoal above the entry to SAM on Wyndham Street; metallic mid-grey facing the park; and rich ochre-red corten steel facing the lake and river plain.

The new Museum is located on the south-eastern corner of Victoria Park Lake to maximise SAM’s greatest asset, the park setting.

Designed to a 5 star Green Star rating, the completed project has since achieved a 6 star rating with the Green Building Council of Australia.

The project reached Practical Completion in the first quarter of 2021.
