THE Whitton Malt House isn't letting a health pandemic get in its way of progress.
The malt house is the latest jewel in the shire's crown and is managing to still make significant inroads while the ongoing coronavirus outbreak continues to wreak havoc.
This means those working on the project have had to adapt to the new restrictions and regulations, but the project has continue to tick off its goals in the face of the challenges that have presented themselves during the pandemic.
This has allowed many to still retain jobs as part of this work, with the Voyager factory now nearing completion.
Whitton Malt House business manager Matt Pete said the project and build was in full swing.
"We're hoping to have that Voyager factory completed hopefully by the end of April and then the Whitton Malt House cellar door is under construction," he said.
"The steel work is going up, the framework is all done and we should start to see even more happening now. Like any business at this stage we have had to make a few amendments and adaptions to get through these unprecedented times.
"We're able to keep going, which is the main thing. We're still able to employ local people and keep them in work."
Once completed, the project will not just be a complete tourism experience, but it will also have accommodation, will have capacity to host events and it will be a place for the whole community to enjoy.
The facility is continuing to attract attention on social media, with Mr Pete saying the word is spreading throughout the region and beyond.
There's many unique features making up the facility, including a rock waterfall centrepiece, lake and room for activities such as fishing for Murray Cod.
The idea is for it to be a complete package of experiences.
"We're committed to our original goal of opening in the back end of 2020, but we will need to wait and see what happens in terms of the restrictions in place," Mr Pete said.
"We've also been busy behind-the-scenes.
"We're hired a cellar door manager and head chef. So there's a lot happening."
