ROCKHAMPTON'S Schotia Place is set for a new look.

From Monday work will start on a $140,000 restoration project on the heritage-listed building's façade. 

Work is expected to take between eight to 10 weeks, with the front of the building completely scaffolded off.

Carparks at the front of the building will also be sectioned off.

All patrons and attendees will be required to use the alternative entry on Market Lane during this time.

Chair of Rockhampton Regional Council's Communities Committee Cr Rose Swadling is looking forward to the new look.

"The work being done to Schotia Place will help us restore and preserve the history of our Region, and I am excited to see the finished works," Cr Swadling says. 

"There will be no disruptions to services at Schotia Place during this time, however I would like to ask patrons and residents to be mindful of the work that is going on.

"There will be some noise, and an increase in larger vehicles in the area during this time, so it is important that the side entrance is used and care is taken during this time."
