The Minister for Regional Development and Lands, Hon. Brendon Grylls was given a tour of the Pam Buchanan Family Centre
last week for a behind the scenes tour of the uniquely designed building.
Roebourne Shire Council President, Nicole Lockwood, and LandCorp General Manager Operations, Mike Moloney accompanied Mr Grylls as project contractors, Pindan, took the group through the building that will soon accommodate much needed family and child-related services for the Karratha community.
Councilor Lockwood said she was proud to be able to showcase the progress of the new facility to two of the project’s partners.
“The Pam Buchanan Family Centre will provide much needed family and child-related services for our community,” she said.
“When complete, the Pam Buchanan Family Centre will boast a child care centre, office and clinic space for family councilors and specialist health providers and two infant health clinics.
“It will also include playgroup facilities with outdoor shaded areas, a coffee shop, and community meeting rooms as well as offices to accommodate government departments and not-for-profit community organisations,” said Clr Lockwood.
All steelwork and framing of the facility has been completed with the unique bull nose-style roofing also near completion.
Construction is due to be completed in November, with the interior fit-out to be installed and ready to use by January next year.
The Pam Buchanan Family Centre is one of six strategic community well-being projects, identified in the Karratha City of the North Plan, which will deliver immediate improvements to public amenity and lifestyle options for local residents. Other projects include the Cattrall Park Redevelopment, Bulgarra Sporting Precinct, Bulgarra Community Centre, The Youth Shed and the Karratha Leisure Complex.
The Pam Buchanan Family Centre is proudly funded by the Australian Government’s Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program, the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Pilbara Cities program and Lotterywest, with delivery support from LandCorp.
