Renovation works at Enfield Community Centre are now complete and the centre re-opened on Monday 15 June. All works were undertaken within budget and additional building works were able to be accommodated. New aluminum windows have been installed in the front of the building along with a new ceiling in the hall and improved lighting.
Refurbishment and upgrade works, which cost around $407,000, were carried out as part of Council’s 2014-15 Building Assets Capital Works Program. The main aim of the project was to provide a facility that more adequately met the needs of regular user groups whilst also providing additional facility upgrades to meet the changing needs of potential future user groups.
Works carried out in 2015 included improved ventilation and mechanical air extraction in the kitchen, new plasterboard ceilings in all passageways and a new grid ceiling in the main hall. All walls and ceilings were repainted, all carpet and vinyl replaced and $42,000 worth of new furniture installed, all of which has greatly improved the ambiance of the building. A new audio system in the main hall will be utilised at annual community events such as the Celebration of Ability.
The renovations also included the creation of a personal care room, which has received very positive feedback from SCOSA: “The fact that a purpose built personal care room was considered by the City of Port Adelaide Enfield and built with the other renovations is a testament to your commitment to people living with disability in your community.
“We all at SCOSA want to congratulate the City of Port Adelaide Enfield and the planners in regard to the planning for this renovation.”
Council is also interested in hearing ideas for new programs and activities that meet the needs of the local community. Residents are invited to view the new look centre situated at 540 Regency Road Enfield. For further details contact the centre on 8405 6556.
