New Kalamunda Community Centre Construction Moving Forward
Construction of the new Kalamunda Community Centre at Jorgensen Park is moving ahead, both on time and budget, with the main building framework up and roof expected in coming weeks.
Pindan started work on the $6.6million facility, which replaces the Jorgensen Park Pavilion, in January and despite the impact of restrictions necessitated by COVID-19 has progressed with construction and met the City’s timeline milestones.
Expected to be operational by March 2021, the centre’s multi-purpose design includes seven activity rooms, two halls, office space, a kitchen, bathrooms, outdoor play areas and a viewing deck.
In a nod to its bush surrounds, the completed design will feature a timber and stone exterior finish and improved car parking facilities.
Mayor Margaret Thomas said it was exciting for the community to see construction moving ahead on this marquee project.
“During these uncertain times, it is marvellous to see our new community centre coming together as expected,” Cr Thomas said.
“I am hopeful we will all continue following health advice and take the precautionary measures required to ensure we are in a position to come together and celebrate the facility’s opening in March next year.”
The Federal Government has contributed $1 million to the project, Lotterywest has provided $2.5 million) and the State Government of Western Australia has injected $3 Million into the project, with a $150,000 contribution from the Kalamunda Community Learning Centre.
