THE nerve centre of a local community is to get a comprehensive makeover courtesy of Procast at the start of the New Year.
The £210,000 project will see Pather Community Centre in Wishaw undergo an external refurbishment that will include:
The building is situated just off a busy B-road in the town, with a bus stop immediately outside the main door of the premises – so Procast will draw on their expertise of delivering high-profile projects in busy or “live” environments.
In this case, that means the company will adopt rigorous procedures and processes relating to traffic management, security and housekeeping.
And because most of the works will be at height while the building remains operational throughout the makeover, careful management will be critical and safety paramount.
Pather Community Centre plays a huge role in the life of the local community. Activities which take place there include senior citizen events, bingo, art groups, church activities, support groups, councillor surgeries, dance classes, music classes, social functions and clinics.
The refurbishment project, commissioned by North Lanarkshire Council, is similar in nature to two other programmes of works successfully completed recently by Procast – Macadam House in Ayr and Mountblow Pavilion in Clydebank.
A company spokesman said: “This is a great opportunity to support North Lanarkshire Council’s investment in this property by the successful completion of external fabric improvement works.”
