Member for Ryan Julian Simmonds together with Councillor for Pullenvale Ward Greg Adermann have unveiled plans for the new community facility at 98 Brookfield Road, Kenmore.
Architects bureau proberts have done a concept design with funding secured by Cr. Adermann following consultation with the Kenmore Men’s Shed, Kenmore Bridge Club and e-Waste Connection on their needs for a future facility.
Mr Simmonds was able to secure $1.5 million of federal funding so Brisbane City Council would be able to kickstart this important community project.
“The first task we had was getting the right design for the site, one that would increase space for all three community groups and allow for easy access for all their members.” Mr Simmonds said.
“This design not only transforms the space but it delivers a larger, more modern facility that will allow these very popular groups room to grow.”
Councillor for Pullenvale Greg Adermann who has been a strong supporter of the project is excited about the design and working with the federal government to deliver for the community.
“All three groups support their members incredibly well but for some time have been crying out for more space. This design will see all three groups with the space they need, the parking on site, and break out areas for events.
“Importantly the upgrade will improve accessibility for all users including those with a disability and result in better traffic flow from the Brookfield Road entrance,” Cr. Adermann said.
Council will now finalise consultation and progress the detailed design for the project in the coming months, ahead of receiving funding from the Federal Government to commence construction.
