Stage One of the Waihinga Centre given the green light 21 January 2017Posted by: Waihinga Charitable Trust
At an Extraordinary Council meeting on the 18th January South Wairarapa District Council (SWDC) approved the project costs and loan arrangements for Stage One of the Waihinga Centre project. A price of $5.332million was approved for the project which includes a $200,000 contingency.
The next step will be to enter into a fixed price contract with Riggs Zschokke then construction can begin. The building and strengthening work is estimated to take a year and will be overseen by Dave Borman and the Waihinga Centre Construction group (a sub-committee of the Steering Group).
