A tender to revamp the Three Springs multi-purpose hall has been awarded, which will allow the space to become a temporary shelter during natural disasters and emergencies.

Coral Coast Homes and Constructions secured the tender to extensively renovate the hall, with the $840,000 contract including an upgrade to the kitchen and bathroom facilities.

It will also include demolition and removal of existing toilets and kitchen and the construction of new toilets, renovations to the existing kitchen and the “red room” and installing airconditioning in the main hall.

The Shire of Three Springs approved the work at last week’s council meeting, which will bring the hall up to standard to be used as an evacuation centre if necessary.

The Shire says users will be able to more easily prepare food and maintain hygiene standards while the air conditioning in the main hall will provide a comfortable environment for hosting events and gatherings.

As well, it says the enhanced facilities will make the hall more attractive for hosting events and catering services and will improve functionality for both small and large meetings.

Eastman Poletti Sherwood Architects formulated the drawings and specifications for the project and will act as the Shire’s superintendent during the construction phase.

The estimated cost for the renovation project of the hall is $839,765. Of that, $508,208 was provided through an Australian Government Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program grant and the Shire will pay $181,588.

Shire president Chris Lane said dates were not confirmed and the builder would be contacted to discuss start and finish times.

“I’m hoping the work will be done as quick as possible . . . fingers crossed in less than six months and hopefully by the end of the year,” she said.
